Calendar List View Issue - No Month, Week, Day Icons

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I'm trying to setup a Calendar view for a list in SharePoint 2010. Everything is working the way I want, except there are no icons to change the view from Month, Week, or Day. Right now, if someone clicks on a date on the calendar, it switches to the Day view. But there is no way for them to go back to the month view.

I open the page in SharePoint Designer, and in the Design view I can see three icons on the Calendar (Month, Week, Day). But at no time do these icons show up anywhere except the design view.

I want it to have the arrow buttons, the month and year (which are already displaying) and then the icons to change the view. How do I get them to appear?

Applying custom CSS to the MOSS 2007 Calendar control Month view



I have a requirement to use the MOSS 2007 Calendar Control - month view is to apply a custom css to have a look and feel as per our requirements.

We tried applying the custom css to the MOSS 2007 calendar control - month view, it does take the custom css and applies it, but when i click on any date and come back to the calendar control, it changes the CSS of the MOSS calendar control back to the default one.

Let me know if anyone has any suggestion on  how to customize the calendar control for css for our intranet application.

Your response would be highly appreciated.

I was wondering if there is a way to change the calendar view on SharePoint so that it defaults to next month.  Will I have to create a custom web part for this functionality or can I create a view and manipulate it with filters? Thank you in advance.

Remove time from Month Calendar view

We have a calendar part on a page that has very narrow boxes for each day. As such we want to remove the time from appearing before the title of the event. I have managed to do this through css where there is only one event. However, have not been able to remove it where there are mutiple events. Any ideas on how this can be removed in both scenarios?

SSAS Calendar Week commencing with split at month

Hi all, Wonder if someone can help. Our CFO wants to see a cube calendar that shows week commencing but stops at the end of month. For example if the dates are Monday  28th   Tuesday  29th   Wednesday 30th   Thursday 1st    Friday  2nd Saturday 3rd Sunday   4th So for this example the week commencing is the 28th of Month 1 and Thursday is week commencing 1st of the next. I am having a problem seeing how I can do this. If I add the weeks to a standard calendar I get the week commencing 28th which includes the 7 days, naturally. I cannot help feeling I am missing something obvious. Cheers

Strange Calendar issue - Missing Data, only on last day of month


Hi. I'm using Sharepoint 2007 and we're experiencing a strange issue. In the Month view, if I look at the month of September, September 30th appears to have 15 items.  Clicking on the date displays these 15 items, but there should be considerably more. The entire day's schedule stops at 6:30 am. If I view the month of October, and look at the September 30th date, it indicates that there are 36 items, which is the correct number.  This pattern happens regardless of which month I'm looking at. It's always the last day of the month affected. The number of missing items varies from month to month, generally around 20 items. I'm baffled, and haven't got a clue how to attempt to troubleshoot this issue.

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions on how to attempt to resolve this!

Bulk editing issue - list cannot be displayed in Datasheet view



On a sharepoint page i click on 'Actions' tab then select 'Edit in Datasheet'  and i see the following error message


"The list cannot be displayed in Datasheet view for one or more of the following reasons: A datasheet component compatible with Windows SharePoint Services is not installed, your browser does not support ActiveX controls, or support for ActiveX controls is disabled. "


I am using XP professional, IE 6.02 to access the sharepoint site.


I was hoping that the hot fix KB938888 would fix that issue, but it did not. bulk editing is a nice feature that i would like to use but i have never been able to. The link to export data to Excel works fine.


if anyone has suggestions, thanks in advance


Calendar Month View - Expand All



Can anyone point me in the right direction to show all items for a certain day when I'm on the month view of a calendar.

We will often have more than three items on certain days and I'd like for the end user not to have to 'expand' to see all the items.

We managed it in Sharepoint 2007, but 2010 looks like a different beast all together.



Issue with People and Groups type of column in datasheet view of shrepoint list.


We have a list created in MOSS 2007 which has a column of type people and groups. When we open the list in datasheet view and try to add records for people and groups type of column the column shows only records from All People section of the site collection. I have verified this for another site collection within the same web application where I am able to see all the users though they are not in the All people section of site collection.
Could anyone please let me know if I am missing any setting or if there is any change required to see all the user names in the people and groups type of column in datasheet view.

Thanks ,

Custom List Calendar Issue


This seems like it should be pretty simple, but I have no idea how to make it work... I've created a custom list which includes a Date field (Date only).  The default view is set to Calendar.  I have set the Time Interval Begin and End dates to my custom date field.  I was expecting that when I click on a day (then New) or a time on the Calendar, that my date field would be populated with the selected date/time that picked... however, it stays blank.  This functionality works with a Calendar list, but not my custom list... How can I fix this?


Events don't show up in a specific month and in last days of months whose calendar view include day



I actually faced a strange problem which is that when I add events in september 2011, they don't show up in the calendar view and the view remains empty but they appear in the all events view but events in other months appear.

Another strange thing is that I was adding events in July 2011. In the calendar view of July 2011, the first 6 days of August appear but this isn't the problem but the problem is that when I add about 3 events in 31 July then about another three from 31 July to 4 August and then about 2 events from 1 to 4 August, the events are collapsed and the 3 more items appear but when I click the link, I don’t see the events that were just on 31 July and I tried this too in the end of March so it seems that the months whose calendar view includes some days from the next month have a problem.

And finally when I change the month to be october 2010, I get error page with the text:

An unexpected erro has occured.

web parts maintenance page: If you have permission, you can use this page to temporarily close Web Parts or remove personal settings. For more information, contact your site administrator.

and I checked in more than one calendar and in more than one site and it's the same, So I'm asking if any one faced something like th

Connect "Project Tasks" List's Calendar View to Outlook


I would like to connect our department's "Project Tasks"-type list to an Outlook calendar (the same way I can do with a "Calendar"-type list).  

In Sharepoint, I have a nice "Calendar View" (this is a Sharepoint View/Report using the "Calendar" format) of the "Project Tasks"-type List items showing which items were worked on in the past or are to be worked on in the future.  I would like to Connect this view to Outlook, but it appears this "Project Tasks"-type list does not have the "Connect to Outlook" option in the ACTIONS menu.  

I have confirmed that the "Connect to Outlook" option is activated in our "Enable Client Integration" settings per thread ((http://www.eggheadcafe.com/community/aspnet/69/10091824/cannot-see-connect-to-outlook-in-the-actions.aspx).  In fact, if I create a strict "Calendar"-type list (instead of a "Project Tasks"-type list or "Issue Tracking"-type list), I do get the "Connect to Outlook" option in the ACTIONS menu.  I'd li
