We're working with Foundation 2010, and I'm running into some calendar overlay issues that are quite non-intuitive, so I'm trying to get a better understanding of what's supposed to happen. Unfortunately, a google search of "calendar overlay" leads to countless articles about inegrating Outlook or Exchange with SP.
My calendars are at
http://sharepoint.domain.com/demo/Lists/Event%20Calendar.aspx, http://sharepoint.domain.com/demo/Lists/TestCal.aspx, http://sharepoint.domain.com/demo/Lists/TeamMeetings.aspx, http://sharepoint.domain.com/demo/Lists/Training.aspx
and I have created
http://sharepoint.domain.com/demo/Lists/main.aspx as a "master calendar" into which all for of the above calendars should be overlaid.
When I insert the "main" calendar webpart, I see the button in the ribbon for overlay, as well as a link in the left sidebar for calendar overlay. However, clicking on either of those yields a blank list, even though I have the four calendars on my site in the same path. I need to "add" all the calendars I want to see.
All calendars are SP calendars created from within the site ("Site Settings > New > Calendar"), no exchange servers are involved.
Is this normal behavior? Am I supposed to have to add the calendars to appear in the overlay, or should the list populate with calendars in my list library from which I just need to select?
Once I've added the additional calendars for overlay and visit my "original" calendar, all of the overlaid calendars are listed in the left navigation. I can view my calendar, but only events from the calendar I'm CURRENTLY viewing (none of the events from the overlays) will show up. Interestingly if I click through to an individual calendar, I can see all of that calendar's events.
Is there some other view I need to access, some other property I need to set, or SOMETHING on my end that will allow me to view these events?
Things I've discovered so far:
- I've got site admin access
- All permissions are set appropriately
- I get the same results whether I add & edit a new calendar from within the "new Calendar" path or add via Site Actions, new calendar.
Has anyone else experienced similar problems? How were they resolved?"
