The institutional Calendar currently consists of two different views. One of them is the calendar view where you can see the opening days and times. This page is read only. The other one is the settings page where you can manage the opening hours of the library.
We separated these two views as the calendar view can visualize the opening days but gives more flexibility with the separate settings pages. Also maybe not everyone will have access to edit and view the opening hours.
It is planned to have exclusions which will be managed like regular opening hours the only difference will be a checkbox indicating that this is an exceptional opening period.
Some things are still missing from the screenshots which are planned to be added later:
- the ability to add multiple hours within a day
- the exclusion indicator (it is planned to be a checkbox like “Open” and “All day”)
- the date range is currently not visible when listing opening days
- 12/24 hour clock is yet to be handled
I made some screenshots about the current status of the institutional calendar which can be found in this Google Drive folder: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1qZpm69Rvup4r3pJt71Bq3-TAw3olPB0L?usp=sharing
We are still having some UI issues and will be working with UX to clean things up. So I am primarily expecting feedback on the functionality.
The next development stage will be to connect the calendar to libraries. As of now it seems like the calendars will be attached to circulation desks. What are your thoughts about this?
