  • Thank you very mcuh Itch for sharing useful information!

    Wondering that OOTB Group calendar can display recurring events, but Event web part doesn't consider recurring events.

    I could find out that in SP-Starter Kit has "Personal Calendar" webpart which is a custom web part hints that, there is no OOTB approach possible, while this webpart displays all recurring events including non-recurring events I suppose.

    Planning to go for Personal Calendar Web part!

  • Hi Dipti,

    It is a by-design behavior, there isn't any support for recurring events in the modern web part.

    Modern UI for adding events does not allow recurring events.

    John Saunders(Microsoft project manager) announces that Web parts don't support duplicate events:

    In addition, there are many such requests on SharePoint user voice:

    As a number of commentors have suggested, Group calendars do a great job with recurring events and are a great way to show them on your modern pages.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Best regards

  • Hello Itch,

    Thank you for your attention, Yes that's not possible in current OOTB web-part, however would there be any possible way? or it require creating custom solution? 

    The "Group Calendar" refereed here is "Calendar list in classic mode" or "SPFx React based Calendar Web-part" or something else? Can you please clarify?

    Best Regards,

  • Hi Dipti,

    It is the Office 365 Groups workspace.

    By definition, it integrates with Outlook since it is an Outlook-based calendar.

    It can be embedded on modern pages.

    More information about Create a Calendar Group

    In addition, Group calendars are not fit to situations where you want a calendar that is shared by the whole company.

    Because it also has some limitations, if your user is not in the Office 365 group, he can't view the calendar content.

    It may not be perfect as your replacement solution, but as far as I know it is the only possibility.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Best regards
