How do I get SharePoint Calendar to show the available resources?

I have followed a few guides, and all make reference to a "Resources"' list, which may need to be create. So I created a custom List called "Resources" but the items do not display in the Resources section of the calendar, nor in its groups. How in this Resources list do I create resource groups and have them display in the calendar or any other part of SharePoint?

Any help is appreciated.

You need to:

  • Remove the "Resources" list you've created
  • Turn on the Site Feature "Group Work Lists"
  • Go to your calendar ==> List Settings ==> Title, description and navigation ==> Turn on "Use this calendar for Resource Reservation?"

I have no option for "Group Work List". I only have "Group Work Site" – Seán McCabe Oct 15 '12 at 1:42
A group work site will have the lists ready to use. But if you need it as part of another site, then you can activate the feature at Site Actions ==> Site Settings ==> Manage Site Features and click Activate next fo Group Work Lists – Per Jakobsen Oct 15 '12 at 7:22
Thanks for that. How would I then allow access of this resource list to the default Calendar? I have created a resource group, and an item within that. – Seán McCabe Oct 15 '12 at 21:58
Got it, thanks for your help – Seán McCabe Oct 16 '12 at 3:21
