Hi and welcome. This is Ghazwan Khairi, a systems consultant at Quest Software. And you are watching Quest Web Parts in Action while looking at the Quest Calendar View Web Part. So with the Calendar View Web Part, we have the option to roll up calendars from multiple sites. We can manipulate the events in a calendar. It's very intuitive. We can drag and drop event. We can delete events right from the screen. We can color-code events based on any value in the event form itself. So let's walk through some examples here.
I already have a working example which is called Multiple Calendar Roll Ups. And it's a live example where I can just simply go to it and see how we have multiple calendars rolled up into one calendar. But I'm going to walk you through it from scratch. So what I'm going to do, go back to the site and just kind of walk you through what I have behind the scenes.
If I go to View All Site Content, you will see that I have a couple of calendars. I'll be using one of them. I have a calendar web part that has some recurring events. And on another site altogether, I also have another calendar. In the site I believe it's called Team Calendar. So the requirement is or what I'm going to configure it now here will be rolling up both of these calendars into one.
So let me go back to that Web Parts in Action site. And we are going to create a new page. And just for showing the capability of calendar roll up, just the sole purpose. So you can really drop this web part anywhere. I'm going to create a web parts page. And I'm going to call this calendar roll up C Roll Up. And I'll put this under my shared documents. This is just the web parts page.
On the web parts page now, I'm going to add a web part. So this is the process of adding the calendar web part to a page. And I'm going to choose from the Quest Web Parts. I will choose the first web part, which is the Que Calendar View. And we'll go ahead and add it. I can watch a video or read some more information about the calendar web part, but you are watching a video. So let's go ahead and configure the web part itself.
So I'm going to select Easy Edit from the drop down. This will open up the easy edit interface. Let's go full screen here. And under Display, we are going to click on Edit. We are going to select our calendar. It's Calendar Number 1. We are also going to add another list. We are going to select a list from a different site. In my case, you're going to use a dot notation, take me up a level, search all sites or search some sites.
And under this level, we should have a team calendar. Let's look together here for team calendar. Here we go, Team Calendar. And we're going to go ahead and say OK. And we're going to go ahead and OK on all of that. So now we have a couple of lists in as our data source. And you see that this is the process which you add your other calendars to be rolled up into this one main view. All right.
So we've got this going on. We've got viewed lists going on. We're not going to be performing any custom actions, although we can. We're not going to be building any camel filters although we can. We're going to just keep everything as-is for now. You know what, we'll just add the ability for users search maybe on, I don't know, maybe on the title of the-- Well, I don't know what people would be searching against in a calendar.
If I go to a calendar, I'll probably be searching by start time and end time. So I'll just pick those. I'll go ahead and say OK. And that's all I want to do in here. There are other capabilities in here. You could show this to specific groups, hide it from specific groups. You could specify other parameters in here. Let's just configure the appearance first. We'll call this our Team Calendar. So I went to Appearance and I change this to Team Calendars because it's a couple of them.
And then Legend Appearance. This is the legend, the legend color. We can show that. We can hide it so that we know which calendar came from which source. The skin name, let's choose web 20. It's just the way we present information. And you can control the height and the width of all this. And you can control when do you start your working week? And do you want to enable the day view? The week view? Again, what's the first day of the week? What's the last day of the week? Do you want the users to be able to delete?
By default the calendars will be color-coded. But say you want to color-code on location as opposed to the source. You can just specify this is the field, I want to color by. And then once you specify that you go into Edit in here. And then you add your appointment appearance. And you say, again we said location. So assume for example New York was a location. So we'll say if value is New York, then the background color will be X and the font color will be Y. And then you can build as many of these as you want as well. I'm going to go ahead and cancel out from here. Let me see. I'm going to remove this. I'm not going to color-code. I'll just keep it color-coded by default.
Toolbar Appearance. Do I want for the users to be able to create a new item? Sure. Do I want to connect to Outlook? Maybe. Do I want to set alerts? Sure. We'll just go ahead and say OK for now. So we've got a couple calendars going on. And you'll see we have a couple of calendars going. And that's how we roll up calendars into Quest Calendar View.
A few things to mention. Let me stop editing and just show it to you live. So if you want to move things around on the screen, you could just basically come in here. And you could change the view of it. Actually, let me go back to F11. Here we go.
So if I want to move this test event from the 4th to the 5th, I simply highlight it, drag it, and drop it. Just make sure it's being selected as you do so. Here we go. And the page is going to refresh now. And it's going to be on the 5th. If you want to drag it where it's, rather than being an hour, you want it to be a couple of hours, you could go to the browse here or you could go to the calendar itself. And you can change the view of the calendar to say only show me the weekly view or the monthly view. I don't think I have enabled that or the daily view. And it may be actually on top on the right-hand side. I don't think I need to enable it.
And so here's the weekly view. Yeah, there's nothing enabled here. And then notice here these are just whatever it is. It's an hour. If you want to extend this notice, the double horizontal lines, you simply drag these. And they'll end up being like a two-hour event.
So we're going to resize this for the occurrence or just for the series. We'll just do it for the experience. And I often get asked that question, do we handle recurring events? And as you can see we do perfectly well. As a matter of fact, they will get their icon here on the left-hand side. I will be able to alert, connect to Outlook, filter.
Again I've selected a couple of fields to filter by start time and end time. I could create a new event. When I click on new it's going to stop and it's going to ask me, hold on. You've got two calendars as a data source. Which calendar do you want to choose to add your new event into?
I'll go ahead and just close this. So this is the Calendar View Web Part. And again, it's available as part of the package or part of the starter bundle when you go to add your web part to the page. It will be the first web part you can add to the page. This concludes this video. Hope this was helpful. Thank you.
