Microsoft Can Bring Us Together

I met my now husband at the Ignite 2015 Conference in Chicago. We shared a table at lunch with some other SharePoint junkies. He was married to someone else at the time so he went straight to the Friends Zone. We stayed in touch over social media asking each other for advice and tips on our respective SharePoint journies.

Flashforward to 2017 and SharePoint Saturday Twin Cities. He was a speaker from Portland, OR. I was an organizer from the Twin Cities. I offered to let him stay in the guest room for the event. We spent all of our waking time together.

He then flew out for a visit for Thanksgiving and met the family.

Again for Christmas.

I flew to Portland, OR for Valentine’s day.

By the end of May 2018, we were moving in together. Now we talk SharePoint, Teams and OneDrive all the time.

We decided to get married in May of 2021 but were thwarted by Covid-19. Pushed the wedding out a year to May 22, 2022.

It was worth the wait.

Thank you Microsoft to bringing two SharePoint junkies together in technology and in love.

Can’t Delete a List Calendar View in SharePoint Online

Hey Tamara, Why can’t I delete the Calendar view I created in my SharePoint Online list? To delete any other view all I need to do is select Edit current view from the view drop-down and hit the delete button on the next screen. I don’t get that option when I try to edit the Calendar view. HELP!

Whew! That sounds frustrating. You are right in that the delete option is not available from the Edit current view selection. The Edit the current view option for the Calendar view looks like this.

Edit current view for a Calendar formatted view.

Not a delete button in sight.

Don’t panic.

You can still delete the Calendar view the old-fashioned way.

  1. Go to the list with the Calendar view.
  2. Click on the cog in the upper right corner.
  3. Select List settings.
  4. On the List settings page, scroll down to the bottom where the views are listed.
  5. Click on your Calendar view.
  6. Now you will see the Delete button. Click the Delete button and the view is deleted.

Remember, deleted views do NOT go into the Recycle bin.
