I have a SharePoint calendar. I have web parts on other pages wich uses code to write events to my calendar. I don't want the user to be able to add events to the calendar directly - only the web parts should write events. How can I disable the +Add link on the calendar.

1 Answer 1


Put the page in Edit mode, locate the Edit Web Part drop down on either the Calendar or the list for the calendar (depending on the view), and while the web part is in edit mode under the List Views section change the Toolbar Type to No Toolbar. I've had to do this on numerous lists where I have either a solution that adds items to a list, or an InfoPath form library. Hope this helps!
