Export Event in Employee Training Calendar losing hyperlinks

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

We are using MOSS 2007 with Outlook 2007.  Whenever a user uses the "Export Event" action in the Employee Training calendar and there are links or special formatting, this special information is lost when the .ics file is created.  Has anyone every had this problem?

Other calendars in our site collection do not exhibit this behavior.  The .ics file create properly & appear accurate within Outlook.

How to Hide Start Time and End Time for All Day Event in Sharepoint Calendar DispForm

Export Sharepoint Calendar (with Recurring) to Excel

Hi Everyone, I have a user who manages several Sharepoint calendars who likes to export lists and calendars to excel.  Currently when there is a recursive item, it only gets sent out once.  I have set up a list view that shows recurring events, but when exported to excel, it goes back to only showing each instance once. I know that the concern is that it will generate infinite entries, but is there a way to export this to excel showing all of the recurring items?  I have tried many times and looked on the internet with no success.  So far I'm only using the included parts of sharepoint, so I haven't looked into 3rd party software or writing my own code. Any help is appreciated, Thanks! -Casey

Sharepoint Calendar export to Outlook but can only view the Title column

I have created a Calendar in Sharepoint for booking out company vehicles. The fields I have created are: Vehicle (Choice), Driver (User/Group), Start & End Times, Title (text), DisplayField (Calculated text based on Vehicle + Title...... it would be nice to include Driver but it seems Sharepoint cannot handle the User/Group datatype in a calculated field.....but I digress). I use the DisplayField calculated field in my default calendar view in Sharepoint. All is good at this point. When one connects it to Outlook (via the Action menu in Sharepoint) the calendar is added but all the entries show only the Title field. If I double click on an entry, only the title field appears - the Vehicle and Driver values are missing. When I try to create a new entry - only the Title field (plus other default Outlook fields) are available. So: How can one display a value other than Title by default, and how can I display the other columns when looking at the event detail?

Export to outlook calendar in a custom list?

Howdy, I have a custom list with a calendar view. I think it was originally created as a custom list rather than a straight-out calendar for reasons of functionality. However, obviously this, being only a list, doesn't have the "Export to outlook" or "Connect to outlook" feature. I can't really recreate the list from scratch because it's been used for quite a while with a lot of content and custom fields, so is there a way of adding this feature? Thanks, Clark.

SharePoint 2007 Calendar - add an event to a recurring meeting workspace

Hello all,

I was wondering if someone can answer this problem I am having. 

Simple Question: Are you able to add an additional event into a recurring event which is linked to a meeting workspace?

Long version:

I create an event in a calendar with the recurrence of every monday for the month. (4 dates lets say)  We have a special meeting to add to the meeting workspace, so I add an additional event in the calendar and try to add this date (15th lets say) to that previous meeting workspace series.

My problem is that the ability to add the new date (15th) to the series doesn't show me any options to add to that previous meeting workspace, I can only create a new meeting workspace.

My colleague who has used SharePoint 2003 at another workplace is 100% sure she could do this, however I am at a loss where SharePoint 2007 allows this functionality.

In a new calendar, I tested this theory by creating 3 events with recurring dates and creating an associated meeting workspace with each of them.  Not once did I get the option to add the event to another meeting workspace.  I added an event with no recurrence with an associated meeting workspace, the very next event could add to that meeting workspace which is what I want except to a recurring meeting workspace.

From my analysis, any event that has a recurring series

Default Duration for calendar event


Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a way to modify the default event duration for a user who adds items to a sharepoint calendar.  I've found the examples on the internet that use jquery, but none of these appear to work for SP 2010.  It changes the "end time" value, but sharepoint then changes it right back.

I'm fine modifying some values on the back end - I know that somewhere the default time is set in a file, but I have no idea where it is despite my looking.  Apparently SP 2007 had a default duration of 30 minutes, but now 2010 has a default duration of 1 hour.  I'd love to be able to change this.

I'm fine editing the aspx pages, but need some more guidance on what is possible with SP 2010.  I tried adding a content editor webpart, but it kept saying that my code might have been changed (although it doesn't appear to have been).

Thanks for any help!


Simplest way to get a month change event on WPF Calendar (.net 4.0)



is there a simple way to receive some event as soon as someone turns the wpf calendar to the next or previous month?

The calendar is used as a user control part. (If this info is necessary)

At least i tried to handle this over some code via "DependencyProperty" to access the contend and the changed event of the "PART_Header...".

Unfortunately that won't solve my case.

Best regards,


Calendar NOT losing focus WPF 4.0


I have a WPF 4.0 Calendar control (Selection Mode: MultipleRange) and a button in a grid.

After selecting dates in the calendar, when I click on the button, the calendar is not losing its focus.  i.e., It leads me to click twice on the button to fire the button_click event.

Is that a known bug? I binged my level best but not finding any answer. I will appreciate if someone could solve it.

Thank you.

Calendar View: Unable filter Recurring Event by Start/End Time and Group by Recurring Event View

Hi All,
I have just found several issues with Calendar View from WSS 3.0:

Unable to filter by [Start Time] and [End Time]
I am not sure why these 2 columns doesn't appear in the Filtering column in the View Settings. The workaround found in the internet is to create calculated column for Start Time and and End Time. However, it doesn't work for Recurring Event, the calculated column will show only first recurring event Start Time.

Unable to use "Group By"
When I create new view in Calendar using format: "Standard View, with Expanding Recurring Events", there is no option to specify "Group By". Anyone knows how to show all recurring event in List view and grouped by Start Time (or any other column).

Thank you and apprecate for any idea.
