I'm trying to see if there's another way to display an upcoming event web part to various sub sites based on the event category.

enter image description here

The source list is located in a site collection. I have several subsites with subsites (i.e. SiteCollection > Committees > Social Committee). Each subsite has a separate list for 'Events'

If the category selected for the event is Social Committee, the workflow should also create a list item in the 'Events' list located in the Social Committee subsite.

I've used Query Web Part but I couldn't figure out a way to display the items similar to what I have above (see image). I'm hoping there's a way to accomplish this using REST API? I found this post but the link for REST API is broken.

I found a much better and easier solution using Data View web part from this page.

  1. Open parent site in SPD 2013
  2. Go to FILE > ADD ITEM > create a NEW PAGE FROM MASTER > Click YES to open in Advance Mode.
  3. Once in edit mode, go to INSERT > DATA VIEW > select the list (i.e. Events)
  5. Click YES to always show List data from current web site.
  6. Save the page.
  7. From the subsite page, insert a web part > select MISCELLANEOUS category > add the web part created in step 1-4.
  8. Edit the web part accordingly (i.e. edit to only display events appropriate for the subsite).

Now, i just need to figure out how to insert this custom web part in custom page layout, if at all possible.
