I created a calendar in SP13.
Problem: For recurring events I will like for each event that's recurring to be listed out in the list view. For example. If I created an event to occur every 1st Friday of every month. I would like to see every 1st Friday for every month to be listed individual on the list view. To resolve: I have tried to create the recurring event and add each 1st Friday date for every month as a separate event. This has worked but very time consuming. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

If you like to display calendar items in List view (content query web part), you need to use sp.js for recurring events.

More on this link. http://www.nothingbutsharepoint.com/2012/04/26/use-spservices-to-get-recurring-events-as-distinct-items-aspx/

var startDate = "2012-05-12T12:00:00Z"; // Our example will show the month of May 2012

$().SPServices({
    operation: "GetListItems",
    async: false,

            // if working with FullCalendar or building an events object for another purpose...
            events.push({
                title: thisTitle,
                start: $node.attr("ows_EventDate"),
                end: $node.attr("ows_EndDate"),
                allDay: thisADE,
                url: thisUrl,
                description: $(thisDesc).text()
            });
        });
    }
})
  • can you tell us more about how/where to use these code? – YogaPanda Dec 9 '16 at 23:03
