I need to build a work order dispatch board type calendar. I have searched the internet for examples. While there are many examples of event calendars like the google calendar, there aren't any dispatch board type calendars that i could find to use as examples to help me get started.
It's a fairly traditional dispatch board in that it has technicians in the left column and the rest of the columns represent either day, week or month views. Each row displays the technicians name and subsequent work order icons of varying lengths to represent the length of the job. Like most event calendars, clicking on an empty cell would trigger the display of an empty work order form and clicking on an existing work order icon, that may span several cells, would trigger the display of an existing work order.
Here's an image of the general layout: [nados.com
I know that using jQuery and jQuery UI would be very useful in putting this type of board together but i'm not sure on how to proceed.
My questions are...
1. Is it better to use divs or tables to create this type of dispatch board framework?
2. Is it better to create static day, week and month views or create them dynamically?
2. has anyone seen any examples of this type of dispatch board calendar on the web?
Any help on this subject is greatly appreciated, thanks.
