Copy Custom Column Value into Title Column in Calendar RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have custom calculated field. I would like to copy this field's value into the Title field within a Calendar list so that the value of the custom field can be displayed when exporting SP calendar to outlook.

    We are not allowed to use SharePoint Designer, VB etc within the firm so any solutions utilizing these tools would not be an option.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

  • Hi,

    You can add ItemEventReciever to the Calendar list. The EventReceiver will replace function of calculated field, and store the value in Title field.

    For more information how to create and deploy ItemEventReceiver, you can check it here:


    Follow the sample to create ItemEventReceiver assembly and user SharePoint Event Manager to register the assembly. SharePoint Event Manager can be found here:
