Displaying Calendar Description Field In Calendar View

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
In the default "out of the box" calendar view it only shows the Title of a calendar event. Is there any way to show not only the Title field but also the Description field?

Events of September 2011 don't show up in calendar view and error on displaying october 2010 in cal



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 and another strange thing is that 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 this.

Thanks in advance.

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.






Use Sharepoint Calendar Start Time field in calculated column

I'm trying to limit the calendar view to current week using the Sharepoint defined field Start Time. However, when I display the serial number behind the Start Time it looks like it is actually giving me the serial number for the Created Date field. I believe it is because the appointment is reoccurring but I'm hoping there is a way around it. I created a new testdate field and manually entered the date and set those appointments as all day events however they are not reocurring appointments. The testdate returns the correct serial number however the start time returns an incorrect serial number. SerialNumber1=DATE(YEAR([Start Time]),MONTH([Start Time]),DAY([Start Time])) SerialNumber2=DATE(YEAR([testdate]),MONTH([testdate]),DAY([testdate])) Start Time  SerialNumber1 Testdate  SerialNumber2 8/31/2010 40420 8/31/2010 40421 8/31/2010* 40405    9/1/2010* 40405    9/2/2010* 40405    9/7/2010 40427 9/7/2010 40428 9/13/2010* 40405    9/14/2010 40434 9/14/2010 40435 9/14/2010* 40405    9/15/2010* 40405    *These are reoccurring appointments scheduled as all day events. The others were entered as one time appointments scheduled as all day events.

Customize calendar to view next month

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.

Calendar and grouped view causes errors

Hello, I've come across a bizarre situation on a standard web part page. First I add a simple (or so I thought) document library web part with a view grouped on a column. The view is collapsed. Then, I add a calendar view to a page. Immediately, my grouped doc lib view turns into a site navigation web part with no resemblance to the doc lib. If I change the doc lib view to a non-grouped view, all is well again. I've built three different pages on different sites and can re-create this problem every time. If I change the Calendar web part to a detail rather than a calendar view, the page goes back to normal. Any idea what is going on here or how I can mix a calendar and a grouped view on the same page?   Thanks.

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? Cheers, Theo

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?

Problems with a calendar and a grouped view

Hi, I am having a problem mixing a SharePoint 2010 Calendar view with a Document library view that is grouped and collapsed. Whenever I add the calendar view to a page (calender details work fine just not the graphical calendar), I lose all the detail in my grouped documents view. I see either an empty icon with an "X" on it or just the name of the grouped column. I need to have these elements together on a team site home page for a major project. If you have not tried this, could someone see if they can replicate the behavior? I've tried it on my dev and QA systems and it happens the same on both and in different site collections as well. Thanks.

Problem displaying Date from Sql table on Calendar Control

Hi, I am displaying Event dates from SQL table on Calendar Control in ASP.NET. Also, I have GridView Control which shows event details when certain date is clicked on calendar control. But I have a problem as not all dates are displaying properly. Strangly enough only dates which have same month and day date are displayed. For example: It shows ok dates such as 08/08/2010, 09/09/2010, 10/10/2010 etc. If I click on the date which in SQL table exists as 11/25/2010 or 12/15/2010 etc (no matching month/day numbers) it shows error message saying: "System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Conversion failed when converting date and/or time from character string."  Follwoing is my code: using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Linq; using System.Web; using System.Web.UI; using System.Web.UI.WebControls; using System.Data.Sql; using System.Runtime.Remoting.Messaging; using System.Configuration; using System.Data.SqlClient; using System.Data; using System.Drawing; public partial class Test_Calendar : System.Web.UI.Page { SqlConnection mycn; SqlDataAdapter myda; DataSet ds = new DataSet(); DataSet dsSelDate; String strConn; private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e) { strConn = "Data Source=mydatasource;Initial Catalog=DBname;Persist Security I

Creating a Calendar view that only shows weekdays.

I've been trialling SP2010 for a little while now, and it looks great. In developing an Intranet, I would like to create a couple of custom views. A weekly calendar view that shows THIS week, in a day-by day format, that only shows monday to friday, with a 1-2 line summary of every entry A way to show on the same page, or link to NEXT week, that shows a similar view We currently have an old/manual Intranet setup that displays the current week + next week, on the same front page, so that Staff can see, at a glance, everything happening in the 2 week period (which is as much information as they want!) Being able to eliminate Weekend from the view is the most important bit, as it enables a bit more room on the screen, and since it's a school, nothing is ever on the weekend anyway! I found a few bits of js code, that are meant to work with WSS2007, but I couldn't get them to work in 2010 (I'm guessing quite a lot has changed) Thanks, Rohan

Calendar Day View - Location for all day events


How do you get the location to appear in the calendar for an all day event?  Right now, the only info that appears is the title, even though Location is the sub-heading chosen for the calendar columns in both week and day view (month view does not have a subheading choice).  I am unable to get any sub-headings to appear for all day events.

Thank you


Attendance column not showing up as field when creating new calendar item

I have a SharePoint calendar, with a little over a dozen columns (I have also added a couple extra columns). When adding/editing calendar events, I notice that the Attendance column is not showing up as a field. If I look in SP Designer, I see the column, Attendance, but it shows a blank Content Type (whereas most all the other columns have a Content Type of Event). Can someone please talk me through this? Not only do I need the Attendance column to be a field for a calendar event, but I have the same calendar on many other sites, so hopefully I can update the Content Type for the Attendance column to Event and solve my problem. Please advise.
