Testimonials from previous participants of Create a Master Calendar in SharePoint
"Our Superintendent wanted a calendar that would enable employees to post certain events on their subsite calendars which would appear on the home page calendar. We implemented [Mark's] solution, and are very happy with our new master calendar." [Ted]
"My first workshop and it was well worth it. I was hesitant to participate due to my lack of Developer or coding skill but everything was clear, easy to understand and follow." [Linda]
"I have attended many other sharepoint workshops/webinars and by far this was the best. I think what sealed the deal for me was the hands on interaction and being able to walk step by step thru the process on my own site." [Dave]
Who is this for?
This workshop is aimed at Site Administrators and Power Users looking for techniques to add additional functionality to their SharePoint pages without having access to the SharePoint server.

Add Color Coding and Tool Tips to Your SharePoint Calendars
May 19, 2010 - 1:00pm EST
How can you help team members quickly identify key events on overcrowded calendars? Thanks to these two powerful customizations: color coding and tooltips, the solution will be at your fingertips.
In the first part of the workshop, we'll add color coding to a calendar, based on various rules:
- Event type (meeting, holiday, training, etc.)
- Priority (high/medium/low)
- % complete (color range from green to red)
In the second hour, we'll see how to provide context information via a tooltip, allowing a user to view the details of an event through a mouseover without having to leave the page.
Who is this for?
This workshop is aimed at site administrators and power users who need calendar solutions in their sites and site collections.
This is the second workshop in a three part series, Knockout Solutions for SharePoint Calendars. You do not have to take the other workshops in order to take this one... they are all stand-alone solutions.
