I'm trying to delete the time-related information when I want to add a Calendar event. I did check the Event content type which has "Date only" option selected. However, the same is not reflecting in the Calendar. It still shows the time-related info.

I even tried creating a new content type based on the event view and still no luck.

If I add new date columns in the Calendar, and when trying to create an event with different Start Date and End Date, it shows up in a single cell in Calendar view.

Any suggestions?

  • Why you need to delete the time data? If it is about display, you may hide the the field with CSS. Or you may set every event a "all day" event.

  • Hi Mark, I agree that you can hide the time using CSS. But in the actual list, it still takes the time 12:00 AM for both Start and End date fields Commented May 4, 2016 at 11:35
  • What is the problem using 12:00 for both start and end, if you don't care the time after all?

You can use a calculated field and set its value to this :


Then you can display only this field and hide the defaults start and end dates.

Edit: This will only display the year part of the date, but I'm sure you'll find how you can display exactly what you want (month, day, ...).


If you are trying to create new Start date and End date with date only field, it will consider time as 12:00 AM. So if you select 4/5/2016 to 5/5/2016, It will show in single cell only.
