    <div id="example" class="k-content">
      <button id="create">Create Task</button>

      <div id="scheduler"></div>
    </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: {
                url: "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/tasks/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" },

                }
              }
            },
            filter: {
              logic: "or",
              filters: [
                { field: "ownerId", operator: "eq", value: 1 },
                { field: "ownerId", operator: "eq", value: 2 }
              ]
            }
          },
          resources: [
            {
              field: "ownerId",
              title: "Owner",
              dataSource: [

              ]
            }
          ]
        });

        $("#create").kendoButton({
          click:onClick
        })
        function onClick() {
          $("#scheduler").data("kendoScheduler").addEvent({
            start: new Date("2013/6/13"),
            end: new Date("2013/6/13")
          });
        }
      });
