Announcing the Release of Team Calendar for SharePoint 2013

In the past few weeks, Bamboo has announced the release of dozens of products for SharePoint 2013 that can help organizations improve work activities, collaboration, and more. Once again, we are bringing you another of our indispensable calendaring tools, and this one is especially useful for purposes of collaboration and team planning: Team Calendar for SharePoint 2013. Team Calendar Web Part for SharePoint provides a centralized group calendar that can interact with a SharePoint calendar list, multiple Microsoft Exchange calendars (Microsoft Exchange 2007, 2010, and 2013), or do both side–side. Users can add and edit items in a SharePoint list directly from the Team Calendar, or they can create and update Exchange meetings and appointments through an Outlook-style resource scheduling assistant. The Team Calendar can even display events for multiple Exchange accounts in a single calendar, complete with customizable color-coding for different calendars and event types. 

New Features:

  • New! Now supported on SharePoint Foundation 2013 and SharePoint Server 2013.
  • Displays calendar information (appointments, meetings, etc.) from an Exchange account in a SharePoint Web Part.
  • View a SharePoint List-based calendar, Exchange calendar, or both side side.
  • Display multiple Exchange calendars from different users in a single Web Part.
  • Break out individual calendars into separate columns.

Hi Calendar Girl

I have downloaded the SharePoint 2013 team calendar webpart with a view to review it for a project that I am currently involved in.  I am having a few issues which I am hoping that you can resolve for me.

1. The environment is SharePoint 2013.  The calendar does not seem to support drag and drop (for moving calendar entries from one date to another).  The native one does! Is this a deficiency in the webpart or is it a configuration setting.

2. The webpart has an option to display a mini-calendar which would act as a day selector.  This does not display.  I think that it is a bug!

3. Is it possible to adapt to the native 2013 styling without lots of custom css.  The existing styles look at out of place in 2013.

4. Is it possible to have people listed at the left for a week view similar to the 2010 group calendar

5. Having a colour-code column is a great feature but one really needs to be able to select a foreground colour as well (for those bad choices where the contrast ratio between foreground and background is not very big. ex. white on a light colour)

Hi Calendar Girl

I added a few comments earlier and I have a few more questions and observations.

1. Calendar appointments in the week view do not extend over the correct time span e.g. 10am-12pm

2. It is possible to have more than one field displayed in the Calendar entry without resorting to calculated fields (I cannot seem to get line breaks embedded)

More Comments

Hi again.  I think that I will just keep adding these as I find them otherwise I will forget.

1. The tooltip is another great feature but what is up with the selector for it.  Seems to be a little section in the middle of the calendar entry.  This is a usability thing.  I am finding that the hotspot is to small and the tooltip often pops up and disappers

It does not seem possible to edit an entry directly.  With the SharePoint 2013 calendar the ribbon displays as soom as the entry is selected giving you a list of actions such as Edit, View, Delete, Permissions, etc.

Hi thylocene,

1. The Team Calendar doen’t support drag and drop function now.

2. Have you checked “Display mini-calendar for quick navigation” on tool panel?.

3. The Css Edit button on tool panel only support to edit events on Calendar View.

4. Please check “Display mailboxes side–side” on tool panel to enable this function.

5. We will keep as the next release.

Thanks,

An

Hi thylocene,

1. Please give us infomation about Regional Setting and Time Zone which you are using on your site to check this.

2. Please select “Selected columns” on tool panel to show tooltip. Now, we only support general fields as “Subject, Location, Start Time, EndTime, Status”

3. We didn’t support Edit event inline and only support Edit/Delete event popup.

Thanks,
