How to Create Calendar in SharePoint. How to Create a SharePoint Calendar.

SharePoint is known for its powerful collaboration opportunities, and effectively adding and managing calendars is essential for companies using SharePoint. Calendar Overlay Pro for SharePoint allows users to combine several calendars, Microsoft Planner tasks, and much more in a singe view.

Adding a calendar to SharePoint enables users to easily access personal events and synchronize them with team events and company schedules. SharePoint calendars also allow managers to check coworkers’ availability and keep them informed of meetings.

How to Create a SharePoint Online Calendar

Before starting to create your calendar, you’ll need to check you have the appropriate access permission level for the SharePoint site. If you want to create a team calendar, make sure the SharePoint site that will contain your calendar is a public site (i.e., it must be available for other users in your team).

Once you’ve done that, you can go ahead and add a SharePoint calendar. The process varies for SharePoint modern and classic view: we’ve included instructions for both below.
