Calendar for Model Driven App

Is it possible to display and use a calendar, like an outlook calendar (with similar functionality), in Model-Driven apps? I need a solution that can ideally work with CDS/entities and with sharepoint list. Also, if the calendar can be displayed in sharepoint that would solve a lot of problems. I have been considering FullCalendar but I will need the completed app before I can learn the code!

 

I would appreciate any suggestions...

 

Thanks!

Re: Calendar for Model Driven App

Hi @criley ,

Yeah, you are right. Currently, there is no other way to use/view/work with a calendar in an MDA without embedding a canvas app or developing a custom component.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Re: Calendar for Model Driven App

Hi @criley ,

Do you want to display a Calendar (Like Outlook Calendar) in a Model-Driven app?

 

If you want to display a Calendar (Like Outlook Calendar) in a Model-Driven app, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

As an alternative solution, I think the FullCalendar.io jQuery could achieve your needs in SharePoint. Please check and see if the following blog would help in your scenario:

Re: Calendar for Model Driven App

@v-xida-msft, I appreciate it!

 

That's what I was afraid of, bummer...

 

I was digging through the advanced settings (Customizations> Customize the System> Entities) and was able to find a "calendar control" for the particular entity i am needing to display as a calendar.

 

After adding the control to the entity, saving, and publishing it, a new drop-down called "Show As" is available in the MDA ribbon(?) next to "Create View." I can select the "CC_Calendar_Name and it displays a calendar view of the entity...

 

Please find the attached images

 

A step in the right direction...

 

Now, is there any way to adjust/modify any of the "settings" for the calendar? Set default view to "Month", change the size, etc...

Re: Calendar for Model Driven App

Hi @criley ,

Do you want to modify the settings of the Calendar control in your Model-Driven app?

 

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs. Currently, we could only configure some simple properties for the Calendar control within a Model-Driven app:

If you want to set the Default View of the Calendar control, change the Calendar control size, .... I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs currently.

 

Please refer to the following article for more details:

@v-xida-msft 

 

Thank you for your help...

 

So, If I understand correctly, other than the limited capabilities of the Calendar Control for a specific entity, there is NO other way to use/view/work with a calendar in an MDA without embedding a canvas app or developing a custom component?

 

My apologies if I am missing something!
