Calendar items lost RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using SharePoint 2007 and MOSS.  We have a calendar set up for our committee members.  We will add meetings to the calendar and the members are able to view their respective meetings.  About a month and a half ago, all of our members could not see their meetings any more.  Administrators can still see the meetings so the issue was not apparent until we were first notified by the members.  We thought it might be a permissions issue, but the permissions didn't change.  We were able to create more meetings that functioned correctly and decided to move on thinking it was a one time thing.  The problem occured about a month later.  I'm new to SharePoint and looking for some suggestions.  Any thoughts on what might cause this?  Is there somewhere that you can set SharePoint to only show the current month?

  • Hi,

     

    You  said that your committee members can view their respective meetings .What steps do you take to achieve this? By creating a filter view or just sending the meeting request to the attendees by outlook? What production server do you use? SharePoint 2007 SP1 or SP2 ? In SP1,if there are more than one items on a day ,they will not show up .

     

    As for showing only current month ,here is my suggestion:

    Create a view by doing this: Settings >  Create view>Calendar view. Name  the  view and  make it the default view .Choose the default scope to ‘Month’ .Then click OK to save the view .

     

    For more information please refer to the sites:

    Events don't show up in a specific month and in last days of months whose calendar view include days from the next month: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepointadmin/thread/05b58eb8-26bb-42f0-b801-4098ece2edd1

  • Thanks for your input Ming.  We are using SP2.  Also, to clarify, we have been using this process for a year or two without issue.  Here is a more detailed description of the process and problem:

    • We use a Meeting Calendar to create a new item.
    • Set up Name, Date, Time, and check the box "Use a Meeting Workspace to organize attendees, agendas, documents, minutes, and other details for this event. "  Hit OK
    • Choose the "Link to an existing Meeting Workspace" option.  Choose a workspace item.  Hit Ok.
    • By default the creator of the event is added as an attendee.  I remove myself through the attendees tab
    • I go back to the meeting calendar, find the item and navigate to it (click on it).
    • Select Manage Permissions on the next screen.
    • Actions button, choose Edit Permissions.
    • Select all except Members Administrators and Members Contributors and Remove permissions option.  So now there are only those two groups with permissions.
    • Go to New - Add users and choose the group for which the calendar item will be scheduled for.  Now there are three groups.  Users login using an active directory account and can see their meetings on the calendar because they are a member of that third group.

    Somehow, that third group will lose thier rights to see the calendar items.  This happens for all of those third groups.  The Admin and Contributors don't lose their rights.  We can re-add them or move on and create more calendar items and it works.
