Can the built-in Calendar App on Sharepoint 2013 On-premise "Attendees" column people picker be changed to autocomplete/people suggestion on the forms? This app is preferred over creating a custom list and creating a calendar view.

Changed <SharePoint:FormField to <SharePoint:ClientPeoplePicker but saving the event does not actually save the name(s) in the "Attendees" column list.

  • Can you create a new Person/Group column on your Calendar list, and then update the "Event" content type of the Calendar to include your newly created column, and remove the existing attendees column. The new field will be of type client picker. Mar 21, 2016 at 17:54
  • Added a new people/group column to the calendar list and is visible in New Form but isn't auto-complete.

  • Is it behaving the same exact way as the existing Attendees field? Also can you post a screenshot of what the new field looks like? Mar 21, 2016 at 18:59
  • Yes, behaving the same way as the existing Attendees field. Added new people/group column to Calendar list > New Form displays i.stack.imgur.com/8t36N.png
