Booker25 offers a number of calendars. This page aims to explains the differences in features and applications.
Using older Salesforce VisualForce technology, these calendars can have some performance issues for large calendars. But what these calendars lack in performance, they make up for in their feature richness. We are working on getting most (if not all) of these features ported to the new Lightning calendars.
Where can I use VisualForce Calendars?
VisualForce calendars can be embedded on VisualForce pages, which can then be added to either:
VisualForce calendars can be displayed in Lightning experience without problem.
When should I use VisualForce Calendars?
Generally, our advice is to only use VisualForce calendars for small to medium sized calendars, and when you can’t use Lightning calendars because you require certain features not implemented yet in Lightning calendars.
VisualForce Calendars pros & cons
Many configurable features out of the box Good performance for small to medium sized calendars Possible performance issues for large calendars Some, but limited options for custom business logic Limited applications, sometimes with an implementation cost
Lightning calendars are the newest calendars in Booker25. They are also the most performant, even for large calendars. As they are Lightning components, they can be easily included almost anywhere in any Lightning experience context. Furthermore, these calendars contain extensive hooks on the reservation form that you can leverage to execute your own business logic.
Where can I use Lightning Calendars?
Lightning calendars can be included on Lightning record pages or Lightning App pages that you create. We are working on exposing more ways to include Lightning calendars, such as on home pages. For more information:
Lightning calendars can be made available in Classic through Lightning Out, but we do not officially support this yet. Some features might not work properly.
When should I use Lightning Calendars?
We recommend using Lightning calendars wherever you can. They are under active development so we are constantly adding new features. If your business case requires certain features, feel free to reach out to us and we will attempt to prioritize those features.
