I have a calendar with recurring events. When I try to create a view in list and using 'group by' month & year, it is not showing recurring items separately in each month category.

How can I get a list view to show all entries in the series with each day having different entries?

  • Which SharePoint version are you using? is it SP2013 on-premises or SP online or is it SP 2010? – Hardik Apr 28 '16 at 5:41
  • it is sharepoint 2010 i am using. I think it is related to the calculated column formula which i am using. – Akul Apr 28 '16 at 6:05

  • is my answer helps you? – Hardik Apr 28 '16 at 8:44

In SharePoint 2010, Recurring events will be stored only as a single item with a rule attached to show all recurrences in the calendar view or when the calendar is linked to Outlook.

The only way to have individual events out of a recurring event is to edit any single event in the calendar view and save them without modification. This will generate single events out of the recurring event.

The problem then is whenever you edit the series this events won't be part of the recurring event. The single events also won't be updated.

  • Yes Hardik, It worked fine. Are you sure there is no other way to avoid this issue? Although your workaround works just fine, but it wont be feasible everytime. Thanks – Akul Apr 29 '16 at 1:54
