I am using SharePoint Online (modern) from Office 365. I have a publishing site.

I want to add a calendar web part, but there is no calendar for my SharePoint group:

"Something went wrong
We couldn't find a mailbox for this recipient. Either they don't have a mailbox or don't have a license assigned."

Is there a way to create such calendar, or some other solution for calendar sharing within team (we want to share holiday absences)?

You can add a standard traditional calendar with Add an app. It is called calendar. Said calendar can be synchronized with everyone's outlook.

  • It is a good solution, but I do not have this option, probably because I use modern version of SharePoint (similarily I don't have promoted links)

  • Is this because you have a 'communication site'? if this is the case, go into the settings, go to manage site features and turn on the line that says "team collaboration lists"
