Hi all, is a simple way to view a distribution of all scheduled prefect Flows? For example, under the calendar tab currently we can see each Flow that is scheduled that day but not all of them overlapping. Is there a way to get this view?

I would be curious to know why would this be beneficial for your use case? Usually, I've seen users wanting to see what are the upcoming runs, and this is something you can see in the default dashboard - do you have thousands or millions of flows that single flows would be too much noise so that you would like to view a numeric distribution/histogram of that?
there is definitely a possibility of querying the API backend and creating some analytics dashboard on your end to get such view

I particularly want to see how many Flows are running around the same time period especially if they are querying the same data sources around the sametime or are dependent around data uploads around certain times. A larger view would be easier to discern when things are happening around the same times vs trying to indetify each individual flow and when it is running in comparison to others
Rather than histogram, I think a holistic calendar view is what I'd be looking for

Thanks for sharing your use case. I've got some great news for you - it looks like you will be able to see a customizable UI view in Prefect 2.0 that matches what you would like to accomplish here - watch the #announcements - not to spoil too much, but our UI team is working on something very cool! it won't be a calendar view, but something very close to what you are describing
