Groups Calendar Web Part Now Available

This post is about another feature that I have been waiting to hit Office 365.  With this new Groups Calendar Web Part you can simply display the calendar events from the Groups location on your SharePoint site.  This is a great addition because many teams I know are using a combination of the features within Groups and Modern SharePoint sites.  So if your team is using a Group calendar vs a SharePoint Events list – this web part will help you display the relevant content anywhere within your team site.

It is pretty straightforward – you simply add the Groups Calendar Web Part on your modern team site:

Groups1

 

By default it will connect and configure to the group associated with your site and display several events in a list form.

groups2

You can currently only configure two options at this point  – the associated group and the number of items you want to display by default (max 10).

groups4

This is a good step in helping us use whatever tool makes the most sense, while still allowing us to view the data from anywhere.  This may be a small web part, but it will have big impact for those that are using Group calendars.
