Simple Tips for Working with SharePoint Calendars
So I work a lot with SharePoint Calendars, even more so with clients asking basic user level questions. I thought I would take a few minutes and pass on some of those training tidbits.
Elements of a Calendar List Page
The Events tab on the Calendar ribbon has various functions, including New Event, View Event and Edit Event.
The breadcrumb’s last node has the View drop-down. The Calendar view displays the items in a monthly format, and the All Events view displays the items in a standard table format.
When the monthly view of a Calendar is visible, the left navigation displays the year, list of months, and the current date. This makes it easy to navigate to other dates.
When viewing a day or week, then the left navigation will show the current month.
The Calendar view displays the list items in a monthly format by default. The items can be displayed in a standard table by selecting the All Items view.
Navigating Among Day/Week/Month

Adding an Event
1. On a Calendar view, hover over a day (or time) until the
2. Click on the Add link.
3. In the New Item window, fill out the appropriate information.
5. Click Save.
Editing an Event
Note: If you click on the title link, you will be taken to the Event Details window, where you can use the ribbon to edit the item (or series).
2. The Events tab in the ribbon should automatically be selected, and Edit Event (among other functions) will be available.
Once a series of recurring events has been created, it is possible to edit a single occurrence or the entire series. It is important to be aware of which type of instance you are editing.
On the Edit Event window when editing a single occurrence of a series, there will be an Edit Series link in the ribbon. If you wish to edit the entire series, click Edit Series and the window will display all the properties for the series.
