I have an employee out list that I am working with that has five different views. The views range from leave, modified workday, to alternate work schedule. My alternate work schedule view has a recurrence of every week on the same day the employee works from home.

I need to filter the view through the list view web part to only show the "event" on the employee's alternate work schedule day (say every Tuesday).

Does anyone have a solution for something like this.?

  • To put it simply, is your requirement to have a view for every weekday, e.g. Mon-Fri?

  • My requirement is to show the employees who are out for each specific day but only show one day at a time. Example would be to only show the employees who are out for today (Monday). Oct 31, 2016 at 13:20

Try to create a filter to your view with the following settings:

  • [Start Date of Outage] is less than or equal to [Today]


  • [End Date of Outage] is greater than or equal to [Today]

This requires that your columns [Start Date of Outage] and [End Date of Outage] are in a supported Date-format.

  • This shows all events. Oct 31, 2016 at 13:54
  • Because I have been searching this topic for almost two days, would it be more beneficial for me but a little more work in the end to just create a column for the specific days of the week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) and for those days just filter the events by that? I really don't see any other way around it other preloading all the information in for the year and just filter the information three times a week. Oct 31, 2016 at 14:03
  • Unless you maintain your list weekly, it'll start to show the results of the previous weeks too where the employee had an alternate work schedule. Doable, but I still think there's a way to automatize this. To the "This shows all events" -comment: Your example screencap includes a result which indeed falls to these "rules" (= filters). Are there some example inputs which are either in the past or in the future which shouldn't be shown? I hope you understand what I'm after with my result - we want to determine a filter which shows only lines where today's date is between those two dates.

  • This is what I just added. [1]: i.sstatic.net/v0AUo.jpg Oct 31, 2016 at 14:22
  • I just fixed the answer, as I noticed I had by mistake put less and greater words the opposite they should be. I tried this on my test list and the filter shows only the list items which have their date range including today's date.

If anyone does run into this issue and until Microsoft can give us a work around with recurrences I needed to make multiple views that will have to be selected each day. Very cumbersome but after hours of searching this was the only viable option I could find.

I created two new columns that you can hide if you so choose; "day of the week" and "week #". I used these two columns to assist me in the filtering of the views. as you can see below.

enter image description here

With this I had to create two views for the same day of the week. For the "week #" column I gave each week an identifier:

Week 1 = 1 Week 2 = 2 Every Week = 4

I hope this can help someone else in the future and hopefully there will be an actual fix in the future.
