How do I add a Calendar app part from a subsite to a parent site? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey there,

    Basically like the title states, I have a subsite with a Calendar App part and would like to add it onto the landing page of my root site.

    I've tried using SharePoint Designer and just copying and pasting out the <webpart /> section but received an error saying the list does not exist.

    I'm also unable to get it to work from saving the web part as a file and then uploading into my root site.

    Any help is appreciated,

    Thanks.

  • Instead of trying to add this calendar, create a calendar in your parent site and then do an overlay of the calendar you want.

  • What about saving it as a template?

  • Saving it as a template will not display any data that is added to the subsite in the future on the parent site.
