In a resource scheduler (extender) I want to delete an existing appointment, see image below (red box).

When I use the standard functionality (DEL) the selected resource is deleted, but not the appointment. Does anyone know how to delete an appointment in the extender (resource scheduler)?

Hello Roel,

 

What a pity that there is no standard functionality in the extender to be able to delete an appointment.

 

The possibility to add a new appointment is available through double click on a time cell. An appointment can be changed by means of double click / resize / drop an appointment. Unfortunately there is no possibility to delete this appointment!

 

It would indeed be a nice wish to be able to link a task 'delete appointment' to this functionality. Maybe it's an idea to drag and drop the specific appointment to a recycle bin (icon).

 

Kind regards,

Hi Robert,

Deleting an appointment could be achieved if for instance a checkbox named 'Delete appointment’ would be added to the Double click task.Then in code you can say something like 'If delete_checkbox = 1 then delete row’. That way you could modify or delete the appointment in the same task.

Maybe this could be a workaround till the time a Delete task is available.

Kind regards,

Not everyone should have permissions to perform the delete action, an additional reason to build it as a separate task. For now we can use the workaround and authorizing the checkbox in a separate IAM role.

Hey Robert,

 

Unfortunately there is no default setting for this. The only way to accomplish this is by writing a custom scheduler in C# and implement the pressed delete key.

 

It would be a nice wish to link an SF task to the pressed delete key in the same way ‘double click’ and ‘drag’ are linked to an SF task. Would this be a suitable solution for you?

Kind Regards,

Hi Mark,

 

Indeed, this is temporarily the best workaround until a 'Delete appointment' task is available.

 

Thanks for your idea,

 

Robert
