It strange that for something that sounds so simple and common, it is most likely impossible. When I first approached this request I never thought I'd end up here typing out my problem ...
I added a calendar web part to my SharePoint 2010 page. Out of the box it works fine and does what it's designed to do.
I would like to be able to filter the calendar based on what a users selects in a drop down or enters into a text box. When they hit enter or press a button some sort of filtering action should occur, such as calendar events are returned, or parts of the calendar are highlighted, or something similar.
Is there any simple, straight forward way to do this? I'd prefer not to start writing PowerShell scripts or C# classes.
Also, if someone is certain that this is just simply not possible please let me know. I don't want to chase after something that is not possible.
