Creating Custom Calendar Views in SharePoint

Question

How can I add custom views to my SharePoint calendar?

Answer

You can use your calendar categories to create custom calendar views to view different color-coded categories. A new view will need to be created for each category item in the category list.

  1. Log in to SharePoint and navigate to your Site. 
  2. Select your calendar from the left navigation.
  3. Select the Calendar tab.
  4. Select Create View.
  5. At the bottom of this window, under Start from an existing view, select Calendar.
  6. Give this new view a name
    • Naming the view based on the event category is typically the best approach.
  7. Leave the default settings as they are, but in the Filter section add a filter to show items when Category is equal to those you have created.
    1. Select Show items only when the following is true.
    2. Select Category.
    3. Select is equal to.
    4. Enter your category value (category name). 
  8. Select OK to create the view.
    • If you have calendar events entered already, you’ll see them filtered on the calendar after clicking save. 
  9. Repeat the process for each category you’ve created.
