SharePoint 2010 calendar overlay RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was curious if anyone else has encountered this issue, and if so how it was resolved.

    On one of my sites (http://companya.com) a calendar has been established, and I have selected an overlay calendar from another site collection on the same farm (http://companyb.com).  While the overlay validates, and items are displayed, the link to details is incorrect.  

    Instead of the details link for the remote calendar being http://companyb.com/calendarb?.... it is set as http://companya.com/calendarb.

  • Hi,

    Based on your description, my understanding is that when you added calendar overlay which come from site collection (http://companyb.com),  the details link for the remote calendar being(http://companya.com/calendarb) rather than(http://companyb.com/calendarb).

    I have done a test followed your request, and I got the following:

    The new calendar overlay which come from a site collection of different web application, the details link for the remote calendar is like (http://companya.com/calendarb).

    The new calendar overlay which come from a site collection of the same web application, the details link for the remote calendar is like (http://companyb.com/calendarb).

    Please add a new calendar overlay which come from a site collection of the same web application, compare the results.  

    Best Regards,

  • Hello Alex,

    Just to confirm you are performing Calendar overlay on site collection and not in between 2 web application.

    If yes, then deleting the Overlay and configuring it back should resolve the issue.

  • Afternoon, 

     I've tried performing an overlay both within and external to the web application.  In both cases the URL on the details reverts to the companya.com URL

  • As far as i remember you cannot have Calendar Overlay is only possible in two site collections under the same web application OOB.

  • Tried to perform the test in my DEV machine and Calendar overlay is working only in 2 scenario:

    Between 2 site collection under same web application

    Between site collection and sub site
