Hi Zcy,

 

Calendars on the portal can function a little strange when trying to initially set them up.

You have a few options for your calendar, but I think the two you should pursue are using an Entity List or custom Web Template.

 

Entity List

 - Using an Entity List you can display a list of records (ie. Events) from your Dynamics system to the portal.

 - There is a section in the Entity List configuration for calendar setup.

 - In order to get this to work, you actually need to use a Rewrite page template rather than a Web Template.

          - There are a few out-of-box templates you can use, the most common being "Full Page Without Child Links".

 - Once you setup your webpage to use the Page Template that is a Rewrite your calendar should render.

 

Web Template

 - If you are looking for a little more control and customization, a web template may be right up your alley.

 - You can use Liquid code to retrieve the desired records and display them in a calendar format using various libraries available.

 - Here is a great blog post about implementing your own calendar: here 

 

If you have any questions please let me know!

Thanks!

Hi @Anonymous 

 

PowerApps Portal gives you OOB calendar control for EntityList. So, you don't want to make a custom calendar control in PowerApps Portal.

Please refer below blog: https://www.formuspro.com/resources/d365-portal-calendar-view/

 

Hope this helps!
