I created a program for my company that allows employees to log in, and make their annual leave selections. It was made in Flash Builder with AS3. It contains a datagrid with 7 available leave slots for each day of the year. Employees click on an available slot and their name in inserted. We go through this process 4 times, with each employee selecting 5 days per round until they have selected up to 20 days of annual leave. We use company seniority to rank the order in which the employees pick. I hope I've explained that clearly enough to have someone help me with my question
I have built a calendar and can cycle through the months (i'd eventually like to get a year view), but I'm having issues with a couple of items I had built into the flash version. First of all, I want to be able to show each employees work schedule on the calendar. They all work rotating shifts of 5 on 4 off. In AS3 i've taken their rotation, paired it with a start date for that rotation and was able to indicate in the datagrid "WORKING" on their days of work. This enables them to pick leave on their correct working days. In Jquery, I'd like to color the calendar on the dates that they are scheduled to work. IS that possible?
Secondly, they pick 5 days of leave at a time. I'd like to display a token of some sort on the page that contains their name. They could then drag the token to a day that they would like to have off. Once they click submit, the selections are submitted to the MySQL database I have set up. How can I create these tokens based on the user's login name.
Thanks for any help!!

the main thing here is connecting a date to a certain table cell. yes,, a table cell, not a calendar day. if you could alter the data going into whatever build your calendar, i would think that would be eaiser than trying to "bolt on" data to an existing view.
essentially, you massage the cal data to reflect one person, and draw the cal for that one person. so, you mod BEFORE you make the html calendar...
dragging is nogood for mobile, and that sounds overly-complicated in general. If you know who is using the app why the complex interaction?
if you simply had a <form> around the cal, and each day had a checkbox like
<td class='day'> <b>14</b> <br /> <label> <input type='checkbox' name='feb142012' /> Off </label> </td>
