GoMeddo Lightning Calendar

GoMeddo offers a number of calendars. This page aims to explains the differences in features and applications.

Lightning Calendars

Lightning calendars are the newest calendars in GoMeddo. 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.

About Lightning calendars

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.

Lightning Calendars

Great performance for small to medium sized calendars
Good performance for large calendars
Powerful extension options for custom business logic
Many applications with low to no implementation costs

VisualForce Calendars

VisualForce calendars are no longer supported. We leave this section for reference only.

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.

About VisualForce calendars

Where can I use VisualForce Calendars?

VisualForce calendars can be embedded on VisualForce pages, which can then be added to either:

  1. Classic or Lightning record pages

  2. VisualForce pages (possibly with your own filtering controls on the same page)
    For more information:

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.
