How is a Calendar "Current Events" view filtering? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Question - how is the "Current Events" (default view provided when you create a new calendar) view only showing Events from today/forward?  

    When I click "modify view" - I don't see any filter criteria - but it must be filtering somehow on Start Time and/or End Time - otherwise, it would show everything like the "ALL EVENTS" view does.

    Needing to know how it's doing this currently - so if/when I create a new view based on the Current Events, I don't create conflicting date/time filters.

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    The Start time and End time column couldn’t be set as filter option by design. As a workaround, you can create a calculate column based on start time, set it as date and time data type, then click ok. Now, go to modify view, set filter on the created calculated column. For example, calculatecolumnname is granter than 10/17/2012.

  • Hi

    This criteria would filter out everything from before the date 10/17/2012.

    How would I create a 'current events' - like flier that would filter out everything before 'today'? I'm asking because the current events view doesn't seem to always consistently do this for me and I get past events lingering at the top of my calendar after they have occurred.

  • Old thread I know, but Kelly really didn't answer your question as to how a Current Events view is being filtered.
