Current Site Calendar:


What is it: On the left is a standard SharePoint calendar showing 1 particular month. On the right is our "Current Site Calendar" web part. It can take months of calendar data and put it into a straight list. You get to set how many rows to display on the page. The read more button takes you to the underlying list for this calendar.

Why did we build it: The standard calendar view is great, but there's a lot of wasted space in it (like on the standard SharePoint calendar above, notice that on many days, no events exist). Sometimes you just want to see a simple straight compact list.


Where does the data come from: The SharePoint list called Calendar (you can change the name). Note that it supports recurring events.

Current Site Calendar:


What is it: "Roll up" (aggregate) all flagged calendar events from all the calendars across the intranet.


Why did we build it: SharePoint does not offer a way to rollup (aggregate) information easily. Even though you can rollup data using the Content Query web part, it is restricted to a single site collection. There are other technical restrictions due to which it isn’t the first choice for rolling up calendars. Our solution allows for any of the chosen calendars to be rolled up. A user, say in the IT department site, while adding a calendar entry, can choose whether he or she wants that item to be displayed in the main company calendar as well. The main company calendar web part can be configured to rollup data cross site collections and even cross web applications. Additionally, our Ajax implementation helps speed up page loading time.

Calendar Rollup Details:


What is it: The Calendar Rollup web part is designed to show the summarized form of a few calendar events from around the intranet. The Calendar Rollup Details web part is used to show detailed versions of all the events from your entire intranet (it has pagination).


Why did we build it: To conserve real estate on the page by showing the partial list of calendar events, we put the full list somewhere else.
