    <div id="scheduler"></div>
    <script>
      $(function() {
        $("#scheduler").kendoScheduler({
          date: new Date("2013/6/13"),
          startTime: new Date("2013/6/13 07:00 AM"),
          height: 600,
          views: [
            "day",
            { type: "workWeek", selected: true },
            "week",
            "month",
            "agenda"
          ],
          timezone: "Etc/UTC",
          dataSource: {
            batch: true,
            transport: {
              read: {
                url: "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/tasks",
                dataType: "jsonp"
              },
              update: {
                url: "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/tasks/update",
                dataType: "jsonp"
              },
              create: {

                dataType: "jsonp"
              },
              destroy: {
                url: "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/tasks/destroy",
                dataType: "jsonp"
              },
              parameterMap: function(options, operation) {
                if (operation !== "read" && options.models) {
                  return {models: kendo.stringify(options.models)};
                }
              }
            },
            schema: {
              model: {
                id: "taskId",
                fields: {
                  taskId: { from: "TaskID", type: "number" },
                  title: { from: "Title", defaultValue: "No title", validation: { required: true } },
                  start: { type: "date", from: "Start" },
                  end: { type: "date", from: "End" },

          edit: function(e) {
                var container = e.container;

                /* ACTION: ADD custom button */
                var newButton = $('<a class="k-button k-button-md k-button-rectangle k-rounded-md k-button-solid k-button-solid-base" href="#">New button</a>');

                // Wire its click event.
                newButton.click(function(e) { alert("Clicked"); });

                // Add the button to the container.
                var buttonsContainer = container.find(".k-edit-buttons");
                buttonsContainer.append(newButton);

                /* ACTION: Accessing dropdownlist widget */
                container.find("[data-container-for=ownerId]")
                .find("[data-role=dropdownlist]")
                .data("kendoDropDownList")
                .wrapper.width("400px");
          }
        });

        $("#people :checkbox").change(function(e) {
          var checked = $.map($("#people :checked"), function(checkbox) {

          });

          var scheduler = $("#scheduler").data("kendoScheduler");

          scheduler.dataSource.filter({
