Add Calendar Items to SharePoint 2010 Team Sites

SharePoint 2010’s team sites provide you with a calendar for tracking your team events. You can access the calendar by clicking the Calendar link in the home page’s left navigation pane.

The calendar displays events in the Calendar view. You can use the Ribbon to change the view from month, to week, or day view and to add new events. To add a new event to the team calendar:

  1. Click the Calendar link in the left navigation pane.

  2. Click the Events tab in the Ribbon and then click the New Event button.

    A new window appears for you to enter your new calendar item.


  3. Type the information for your event.

    The Title, Start Time, and End Time fields have asterisks next to them indicating they are required fields.

  4. Click the Save button to save the event to the calendar.

You can add tasks, contacts, announcements, and even new discussion topics just as easily as adding new calendar events.
