Sharepoint 2010 Calendar

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Basically we have setup a Calendar in SharePoint that shows everyones location. The problem we are having is, the default view doesn't show all users just the attendees. I can go to People and select a group and see a week view of the group but this is not very freindly. Is there a way to make the default view show appoinments for a all users or a group of users? If not then is there a wy to defaulthe attendees field to default to a group of users?

Add "New Calendar" to the site actions menu in SharePoint 2010

I really like how SharePoint 2010 uses Silverlight to allow users to create a new Document Library from the Site Actions menu.  I would like to alter the v4.master page and add a new menu item to the Site Actions menu that allows the user to create a new Calendar.  How do I alter the code below to make a new menu item that will create an events list? <SharePoint:MenuItemTemplate runat="server" id="MenuItem_CreateDocLib" Text="<%$Resources:wss,siteactions_createdoclib%>" Description="<%$Resources:wss,siteactions_createdoclibdesc%>" ImageUrl="/_layouts/images/NewDocLibHH.png" MenuGroupId="200" Sequence="220" UseShortId="true" ClientOnClickScriptContainingPrefixedUrl="if (LaunchCreateHandler('DocLib')) { GoToPage('~site/_layouts/new.aspx?FeatureId={00bfea71-e717-4e80-aa17-d0c71b360101}&amp;ListTemplate=101') }" PermissionsString="ManageLists" PermissionMode="Any" VisibilityFeatureId="00BFEA71-E717-4E80-AA17-D0C71B360101" />

SharePoint 2010 Foundation - Connecting to Exchange 2010 Calendar's



    I've got a problem when trying to view additional calendars through SharePoint that my Exchange server has. The error states:

Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel with authority 'myservername.net'. (1b1a6f32-0128-4676-90a1-9501cc6b9805).

I've tried using direct IP addresses instead for the server name with no joy. If i change the calendar path name to use the OWA extensions as (as below) i receive the same error:

Outlook Web Access URL:


Exchange Web Service URL:


I select that the type of calendar is Exchange based and i am using Exchange 2010 SP1. Both servers are running Server 2008 R2 with the latest service pack. I have tried importing root certificates from Exchange to SharePoint server with no joy. Further, i have managed to get SharePoint to send e-mails interfacing directly with Exchange (to specify site group membership etc) so communication is occuring between the two seperate servers.

Any help will be gratefully appreciated.

Sharing Sharepoint 2010 calendar


Hello, I've installed Sharepoint 2010 Foundation and created group calendar that is visible for all employees because we would like to know who is out of office. 
Everything would be fine besides whenever employee login to sharepoint he see only it's own calendar item. If he add manually person for eg. mr.john he's able to see his item too. But there are another two problems:
1) he can't add all employees by adding group nt authority\authenticated users
2) when he logs out from sharepoint and login again he need to enter person again because there is only him on the list.

Does anyone know how to solve that problems?

Everything works except for adding "Person or Group" types. Can't find any good notes on this.


Can you use calendar overlays to show two Exchange 2003 conference room calendars in Sharepoint 2010


I want to use the calendar overlays to show an aggregate view of multiple conference room calendars on a single sharepoint 2010 foundation webpart.  The calendars are resource calendars held on an SBS 2003 server.  Is this possible?  I get a 404 error if I try to navigate to https://myowaserver.contoso.com/EWS/exchange.asmx with IE.  If I try the calendar I get the  following error:

SharePoint 2010 Analytic Chart Default ignored when chart opens - uses calendar filter and formula b


I created an Analytic Chart and it works great.  All filters work.  When it opens in dashboard designer the chart displays based on the default. There is a calendar filter and the connection formula is Day-15:Day.  When the dashboard is opened in SharePoint the time frame is always based on when the Calendar object was last changed.  How do I get it to initially open based on the MDX parameter default - which is what I see in the Dashboard Designer?  The idea is to initially give user data based on now and then from there user can change time frame and next time the page opens it would always go back to now.

Parameter Default:

{StrToMember("[Calendar Snapshot].[Year-Qtr-Month-Date].[Date].&[" + format(DateAdd("d",-15,now()),"yyyyMMdd") +"]"):StrToMember("[Calendar Snapshot].[Year-Qtr-Month-Date].[Date].&[" + format(now(),"yyyyMMdd") +"]")}
