This recent project was a custom calendar in Sugar 7 for a national message broker who uses Sugar to manage its customers, bookings, and massage therapists across the U.S.
Sugar’s out-of-the-box calendar only works with the Users module. Our customer’s massage therapists are Contacts, not Users of Sugar. Instead of trying to work with Sugar’s existing calendar, we decided to build a custom calendar that would allow managers to coordinate massage appointments. The calendar customization allows the massage therapists to identify appointments that need to be staffed and automates the majority of the scheduling and staffing process.
