Month view for calendar on the page
We would like the calendar display apps (events and group calendar) to allow a "month" view. We love the events parts and like that they link to a group calendar but would love to visualize this in a month or week format
We’re actively thinking about how we can better support the desire for a great looking, responsive, wall calendar view. As we solidify our thoughts, we’ll share more.
Is there any news about the month view calendar?
We want to convince our users to leave behind the pages built on the old Sharepoint 2010 and create "new experience" pages, but we cannot offer a convincing solution to the pages that show monthly calendars.

I NEED to be able to add my Group calendar to the Home page of my Sharepoint group site AND have it look and function like it does in my Outlook calendars: being able to select daily, weekly, or monthly view at my (or others discretion), color-code events, add/delete, etc...
The current setup of the calendar 'app' to add in is completely useless. I recall I used to be able to add full calendars to SP 2010. How is it that SP got worse not better??

Please ignore Simon King, apparently he can't read. To be very clear, everyone needs a modern (responsive) month view and week view not a Film Strip or Compact view. This is a standard business requirement for for everyday business users that work at virtually every business on the planet. Anyone that has used Outlook or SharePoint classic anytime in the last two decades understands the ask.
Solution for people who want the OOTB SharePoint Calendar or Modern Events shown using the Modern Event webpart! AND want the month view
1. Add the Modern Events web part to the page
2. Edit (configure) the web part
3. Change Source to Events List on this site
4. Events List - select the OOTB Calendar
5. Select Category or leave blank
6. Select Date range for events - All, This week, this month, date range etc....
7. Select Layout Film Strip or Compact
8. # of items ot show
You now have the OOTB SharePoint Calendar showing in the Modern Page using the Modern events webpart.
I hope this helps - Simon King - One Off Jobs

Every business needs a comprehensive calendar solution. Exchange calendars, SharePoint calendars, O365 Group calendars, and Planner calendars do not play well together. At a minimum, SharePoint calendars should provide a modern week view and month view, but ideally they would also have color coding and a rollup feature. Adding Planner calendars to some future overlay capability would be very helpful too.

Wait, this one is Thinking About It, but this one:
is marked Won't Do? Since this one here was commented on later by MS, is this the latest response and is this being worked on?

I'm currently reviewing our classic team sites for how easy they might be to migrate via the MS conversion tool. I'm finding almost every one I look at has a Calendar list. I'm not sure how that'll behave if we run these through the tool but I'll be doing some testing.
Needless to say this is a popular, recent, and important ask from everyone here so we sure hope you're working on it! Our organization uses SP calendars to coordinate some important rollouts and initiatives.

Kind of funny that for your icon you used a monthly calendar flip view, yet what we get is a text list. There are several paid options which are charging in the thousands of dollars range. Would be a great value to look at how they have solved the issues.

Ditto everyone else here on the thread :]
Any update on a wall calendar view vs. the tiles? This is a key feature for us.
As we do not use exchange online yet, it is not possible to use the group calender, which is unfortunate..
If possible, it would also be very useful for us to be able te have a "month" view of the calendar.
Google sites had this feature back in 2009/10, a month view embedded with selected calendars feeding into it. I do not understand why MS are not all over this!
Yes, yes, yes - this is an absolute must. You provided something that a great many people use only to, in typical fashion, "upgrade" to something that is supposedly better, but removes vital functionality. Please fix this.
We need this!!! Everyone asks for it. Please make it happen.
There are 2 uservoice requests for this item. I would suggest for everyone to upvote the other uservoice idea "Modern Calendars."
Completely agree with Dan Hancock: "This is a huge flaw in the calendaring functions to not be able to embed a calendar from an O365 group into a SharePoint page. We have had numerous requests for this feature in our entity. Please make this a high priority in development. This needs to include viewing in a standard monthly format."

I totally agree with Stan Snyder and most others on here. If I insert a calendar I need people to see at least a month view and the ability to hook their Outlook up to the calendar if they choose. Exactly how it was in SharePoint 2016 and all previous versions.
