Bitrix24 On-premise has the option to implement event calendars of several types.

  Creating iblocks

Create an iblock type, for example Calendar, and proceed by creating such iblocks for all types of calendars at Bitrix24 account. For example:

  • create Meeting Room Booking iblock to show room occupancy used for meetings and briefings;
  • create Video conference meeting room booking iblock for video conferences.

Meeting Room Booking iblock sections are meeting rooms, and elements - room bookings. Similar to this Video conference meeting room booking iblock sections are video conference meeting room booking.

Note: use the special Event Calendar module to show company events, workgroups, personal calendars.

  Creating public interface

The Event calendar 2.0 component (bitrix:calendar.grid) is used to show any of calendar types in public section, as well as for creating a booking interface via the calendar.

Note: this component is also used to show employee and workgroup calendars, however this component is called by the complex component Social network - user (bitrix:socialnetwork_user) and Social Network - groups (bitrix:socialnetwork_group) accordingly. The parameter settings indicate the required employee and workgroup calendars.

Meeting Room Booking (bitrix:intranet.reserve_meeting) complex component creates table view for meeting room booking.
