  • Hi youlearn,

    By default, the Calendar does not support Export.

    We could open the page or list view in SharePoint Designer with Advanced Mode and find “ExportControlledProperties” property of the Calendar web part. Change the value of “ExportControlledProperties” from “false” to “true”. Save the changes and refresh the page, then we can export the Calendar web part.

    Another method, we can save the Calendar as a list template. List Settings > Save list as template > Select “Include Content”. Then we can download this template in the List Template Gallery.

    Best Regards,

    Linda Zhang
