#Office365Challenge – Calendar views are pretty neat for displaying content in ‘date formats’. We know that the Task List App comes with a calendar view, but did you know you could create a Calendar View on your Custom List App as well?

Day: 147 of 365, 218 left
Tools: SharePoint
Description: Create a Calendar view on a list in SharePoint.

To create a Calendar template view, there are a couple.of prerequisites. Without the correct columns you will not be able to display it in Calendar format.

The first is the ‘Time Interval’. Your list needs a Start Date and End Time column for this to work.

Next is the ‘Calendar Columns’. This is the Title and Description (sub heading)  it will use in the blocks.  Only the title is compulsory.

So in actual fact your custom list only needs a Start and End Date for the Calendar view to work. All lists already have the Title.

Voila!! And you thought it was gonna be difficult….

Overview of my challenge: As an absolute lover of all things Microsoft, I’ve decided to undertake the challenge, of writing a blog every single day, for the next 365 days. Crazy, I know. And I’ll try my best, but if I cannot find something good to say about Office 365 and the Tools it includes for 365 days, I’m changing my profession. So let’s write this epic tale of “Around the Office in 365 Days”. My ode to Microsoft Office 365.

Keep in mind that these tips and tricks do not only apply to Office 365 – but where applicable, to the overall Microsoft Office Suite and SharePoint.
