How to embed a calendar view on a SharePoint page

Posted on August 4, 2022
SharePoint

I blogged previously on how we can now create a modern calendar view based on Microsoft List. However, the limitation we had for some time was that we could not embed a calendar view on a SharePoint page. We used to have this ability with the older version of SharePoint (SharePoint classic pages), but with the page modernization, this ability disappeared. Luckily, some improvements were made, and I would like to explain how to achieve this to you.

Step 1: Create a Modern Calendar View on a list

The first step is to create a calendar view on a list. It is important to note that the Events app is still not compatible with modern pages, and all you can embed using the Events Web Part is the list of upcoming events, not a calendar view.

The workaround is to create a calendar view on a modern list – please reference this post for instructions.
