I am trying to create a custom site content type for a calendar (list). I know the exact fields that I need for it, but I am not able to hide or disable the following columns:

Recurrence, All Day Event, Workspace

Is there a way to build a custom site content type without interference from pre-built content types?

Unfortunately No, you must select Parent Content Type for each new site content type.

Regarding hiding Recurrence and All Day Event columns, you alright theses fields is not clickable in event content type setting to change its site columns setting to Hidden (Will not appear in forms).

Meanwhile, to achieve your goal to hide Recurrence and All Day Event fields you can use jquery in script editor in your new and edit page as the following:

  • Open your new item page in new tab.
  • Edit the page > add script editor.
  • Add the following code


<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.0.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$('nobr:contains("All Day Event")').closest('tr').hide();
