I am trying to embed a team calendar on a page within confluence. If I go to the 'Calendars' area of the space i can create calendars and events no problem but when i try to embed it fails.
1. Using the 'Embed' link from the Calendar edited onto the page just puts a link on the page
2. Inserting the 'Team Calendar Macro' does not give me the Add New Calendar, Subscribe to Existing Calendar etc window interface, it just asks for a Calendar in the macro edit window. If you add this you get a blank calendar that says 'You have not created or subscribed to any calendars', even if i use the same name.
I am using Confluence Cloud trial version and a trial of Team Calendars on Chrome.
Hello there, @Peter Natale!
Thank you for pointing out this unexpected behaviour. Embedding a calendar can be a quite useful tool. Be it when we create pages for events or need to organise scheduled workflow documentation.
I was able to replicate your issue quite easily. With this in mind, I could find a bug report that deals with this situation. Here, take a look:
I encourage you to vote and watch this issue. Voting can help increase the issue visibility and watching will keep you up to date with everything posted there!
Currently, the workaround I could come up with involves iFrames and is far from perfect. But here you go:
- Create a new page
- If using the new editor, be sure to click the <- -> symbol right under the publish button
- this will set the page width to full
- Insert the iFrame Macro
- In the iFrame source, insert the calendar embedding link
- Set the Width of the macro to be 100%
- Set the height to be something that shows all calendar (I settled for 700px)
- Save the macro
- Publish the page
The downside of this workaround is that the whole calendar page will be added to your newly created page. Here is what it looks like on my instance:
Hope my answer helps you out, Peter! Looking forward to your reply.
I have voted and added comment to the issue. Its more than minor, this issue destroys the business case for Team Calendars as a paid add on. The iFrame work around, as you say, is not usable and will create a negative user experience.
I guess i just have to wait or find an alternate product.
Hi @Evan Gordon ,
A workaround for this issue has been added to the bug ticket just yesterday. Can you kindly test if it works for you as well?
As a workaround, it has been confirmed that that the user can paste the calendar ID on the calendar field (for example, 2307a1bb-a01b-4b23-a470-5783d8b8e29b):
- Go to the desired calendar to be added.
- On the URL, make sure to only copy the ID (in our example, 2307a1bb-a01b-4b23-a470-5783d8b8e29b)
- Open a page and include the macro
- Paste the ID on the "Calendar" field
- Tap the preview button and then, save the configuration.
Hi @Peter Natale ,
I know this is not optimal, but it is a temporary workaround that can be used while waiting for the bug to be fixed.
If you haven't already done so, you may want to watch the bug ticket so that you will be notified in case of any progress.
