EUSP Solutions: Color Code a SharePoint Calendar


SharePoint calendars are basic at best. How do you tell different types of events from others? Is there a better way to display the information?


Let's color code the calendar using clientside solutions where it won't be necessary to access the server.

Workshop Description

You'll get your own SharePoint sandbox, along with all the parts needed to color code your calendar solution. This session includes hands-on labs so you'll be ready to implement immediately after the workshop.

Testimonials from previous participants of live online workshops:

"I found this workshop well worth the time and cost. Even after managing SPS for over three years and architecting our current MOSS solution I found it valuable to spend this time to review content types and to actually put it into action." -- Kip [The Basics of Content Types in SharePoint 2007]

"I love these sessions They get me to thinking what I can (or might) do with SharePoint! I never thought of using Content Types for things other than a library." -- Shannon [Create a Master Calendar in SharePoint]

"This is an excellent workshop. Mark answered every question and moderated with humor and patience through the usual communication hiccups with an audience that is international (Argentina, Ireland, all over the US)." -- Betsy [SharePoint Dashboards, Online]

"This workshop was absolutely worth the time and money. I learned alot and will be able to easily transfer it to my daily work. I can’t wait to impress my coworkers." -- Tammy [SharePoint Dashboards, Online]

"Was a great lab. Nice interraction between the host and the audience. Was great information and well presented with loads of reference materials which helps when retrying things on your own." -- Shaune [Create a Master Calendar in SharePoint]

"Don’t waste anymore time reading this to check out if it was worth it - stop reading and book your session!" -- Mick [SharePoint Dashboards, Online]

"This was one of the best training sessions I have attended. It delivered a lot of powerful information yet was simple to follow and participate in. I can’t wait for the next class!" -- Heidi [The Fundamentals of SharePoint Lists and Libraries, Online]

"...very professional work. The workshop format with the hands-on lab made the 3 hour webconferencing event a valuable experience for me." -- Urs [The Fundamentals of SharePoint Lists and Libraries, Online]

"What I got out of it the most was by far the use of Task Lists, that was exceptional ! I had no idea that they could be that useful. I’m planning on importing many of my spreadsheets into the site, including our business plan." -- Erik [The Fundamentals of SharePoint Lists and Libraries, Online]
