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.
Any updates on this?
Microsoft Lists seems to be resolving this need!
Any more thoughts on the monthly calendar, Sites Production Team? This missing tool is an enormous gap in the product. In the 50+ sites I've built in the last 18 months, it's the #1 request from my clients... And the iframe hack is an unimpressive stop-gap.
We rely on our old sharepoint calendars in full month view for planning vacations in our department. We are new to 365 and tried a work-around in new sharepoint and created groups in 365 outlook app to try to create new calendars but the current view pulled into SP is useless: it doesn't give us a good visual to know where we might be able to ask for vacation time (which isn't an issue now during pandemic, but it will be!). AND the 365 people groups/calendars aren't visible in the outlook 2013 desktop app that most of the staff use. Please help!
It would be useful to be able to have an overview of events for the month - something more visual, with fewer details, and something that takes up less space on the page. At the moment we're simply embedding the Calendar app onto our sharepoint page so that we can see the whole month of events.
Yes! please add a monthly view for the group calendar in SharePoint and the ability to increase the limit higher than 10 items in the current view, but preferably having a monthly view will solve this problem.!
I can't 'upvote' this enough. There are a lot of use cases I can think of off the top of my head where a team would want to display an entire month view of dates. We use a list Calendar to track reservations for our labs and folks want monthly views (and the ability to scroll previous/next month) so they can see availability. AND be able to create new event in that window. Being able to use a webpart on a modern page for this -which also contains other information (address, hours, contact info, document, links, etc) - is a no brainer. Yes, you can send your users to the calendar page, but why? The fewer clicks, the better. I know I can 'embed' but it brings over the whole page layout which is not attractive embedded into a webpart. PLEASE modernize the calendar functionality in SharePoint!

As you keep thinking how to develop this one, please keep in mind that Events may also have aggregated events from other sides (hub events pulling events from other sites), this will be a must needed
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.
