  • Hi allan,

     

    For your question, you want to aggregate calendar events in a calendar. You can use Content Query Web Part (CQWP) or the Data View Web Part (DVWP) to achieve that.

     

    In addition to that, a solution to this problem is to turn the paradigm upside down: have a Master Calendar that ‘pushes’ information out to subcalendars by exposing views based upon content types. Creating a content type for each subcalendar makes it possible to dynamically generate views based upon those content types. For the detailed information about this approach, please refer to the following articles:

    If the solutions above can’t meet requirements, you can try KWizCom Calendar web part - Calendar Plus, which can do what you need.

  • There is an OOTB option how to aggregate calendars in single calendar.

    Here is a great article that describes how to do it: http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/1023777/aggregate-sharepoint-calendars-from-various-source

    Also I can recommend to try SharePoint Calendar Web Part by Virto - it allows to use different datasources like Microsoft Exchange, SQL, Any SharePoint list and even SalesForce: http://www.virtosoftware.com/sharepoint/calendar-web-part
