Adding a calendar to a SharePoint modern site is not straightforward. Here we will see 2 ways to add a calendar to sharepoint home page or any other modern SharePoint page.
SharePoint Online Calendar
Here I have a calendar list created in the SharePoint Online modern site. To create a SharePoint Online calendar list, click on the Settings icon -> Add an app and then choose the Calendar list template.
You will see the classic look of the sharepoint events calendar as it is still not converted into modern list.
We will display this sharepoint calendar in a sharepoint online modern page.
Here we will see the below two ways add calendar in modern sharepoint page.
- SharePoint modern events web part
- SharePoint modern embed web part
Add calendar web part in SharePoint Online modern page using events web part
Let us see, how to add calendar web part in SharePoint Online modern page using sharepoint online modern calendar web part or sharepoint events web part.
Open a SharePoint Online modern page, click on the Edit button to edit the page. Here I have added a section and then click on the + icon to add a web part to the modern page. Here search for Events.
If you have only one calendar in the SharePoint list, then it will display the calendar events in the modern page like below:
SharePoint event web part customization
Let us see a few SharePoint event web part customization options. If you have more than one calendar then you can select the list and configure a few options.
Edit the calendar web part and you can see the Events properties panel like below. Here you can set the below properties:
- Source: Select the SharePoint site where your calendar list is presented. You can choose from the below 4 options:
- This site
- This site collection
- All sites
- Select sites
- Event list: Choose the event list that you want to display.
- Category: Select the Category of the events like All, Birthday, Get-together, Holiday, Meeting, etc. Make sure you have selected the category while adding an event to the SharePoint calendar list.
- Date range: Here select the date range of which events you want to display like:
- All upcoming events
- This week
- Next two weeks
- This month
- This quarter
- Select date range: If you enable this option, it will allow you to select From and To date.
- Layout: Here you can select a layout like Filmstrip or Compact. If you want to display the SharePoint calendar in a 1/3 column layout, then you can choose the Compact view.
- Show up to this many items at a time: Here choose how many items you want to display, by default it will be 20 items. (Note: Number of items must be between 1 and 200)
If you will choose the Compact layout the sharepoint online modern calendar will looks like below:
Provide a Title for SharePoint Online modern calendar
You can also provide a title for the calendar. Simply, edit the page and type a title like below and Save and Republish the modern page.
After any modification to the page, you should Publish/Republish the modern SharePoint page.
This is how to add calendar webpart in sharepoint online modern page. In the same way, you can edit the home page and add a calendar to sharepoint home page.
Embed SharePoint calendar in modern page
The other way, we can add calendar to modern sharepoint is by using the sharepoint modern embed web part.
To embed a calendar in a embed web part, we need to create the embed code.
Copy the SharePoint calendar URL from the browser URL and make an embed code like below:
<iframe src="https://tsinfotechnologies.sharepoint.com/sites/SPGuides/Lists/TSInfo%20Team%20Calendar/calendar.aspx" width="750" height="500"></iframe>
Now edit the modern SharePoint page, where you want to embed the calendar, then add a web part and search for embed, then add the SharePoint Online modern embed web part like below:
Then enter the above embed code in the modern sharepoint embed web part.
Then you can see the calendar will appear in the modern SharePoint page like below:
The problem here is, it will display the entire page, users will be able to see the Navigation, logo, etc.
This is how to embed sharepoint calendar in modern page.
SharePoint add calendar from another site
It is very easy to add calendar from another SharePoint site in the sharepoint modern events web part.
Add a event web part and then edit the web part.
There in the Source, then choose Select sites. Here you can select multiple sites. Search site by title or even you can enter the URL or choose from frequent sites.
Here I have selected the below site:
And I have added the SharePoint Online modern event web part in the below site:
Now, you can see the events will appear like below
It even allows us to filter events by category.
