Hi @Manoj Bajpai ,

You should be able to add the Team Calendar in the Confluence pages by searching for the macro, please find the below screenshot for reference.

Thanks,

I am also having issues displaying the calendar on a page.

I am using the Team Calendar Macro and have filled out everything correctly (as far as I can tell). Here's a screenshot of the macro with the information filled out:

As you can see, it generates a preview; however, I have populated at least a years worth of events that it doesn't display (I have several occurring over the next 30 days).

I have tried different calendar names as well as the calendar id and nothing that I have tried seems to help. It's almost as if Confluence doesn't know that I have installed the free trial of the Team Calendar and that there is data there to be pulled in.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

@Matthew Buchanan , I'm having the same problem, but I entered my calendar into the Team Calendar macro differently. Wondering if this might change your behavior.

In the Calendar view (not the macro) click the ellipses icon next to the calendar name and click Embed. Copy the URL from that screen and paste it into the Calendar field in the macro.

That was working for me as recently as last week. It's not working for me this week. My screen looks just like your screenshot with "You haven't created or subscribed to any calendars" at the bottom of the calendar. I haven't found a solution, yet.

@Marty Wolcott I may have found a solution that will work for you.

Where the macro for Team Calendar is asking for the Calendar name, try entering the Calendar ID. I had to play around with finding what the actual Calendar ID is, so let me save you some time.

Go to the calendar that you have created in Confluence, and click the ellipses button. In the new window that opens, click Embed. This will give you the URL for your calendar. Copy and paste that URL into Notepad (or something similar that will let you view the entire link).

The ID that you will need is everything after ... calendar/ and before ?calendarName=

For example:

https://{companyname}.atlassian.net/wiki/display/{space}/calendar/{HERE IS THE CALENDARID}?calendarName={calendarname}

 

This worked for me and should work for you.

Hot damn! That worked! Thanks, @Matthew Buchanan 

I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to this, so I'm ecstatic that I was able to help you figure out an answer to a question that we were both having problems with!

@Matthew Buchanan 

Hi Matthew, 

Having the same issue still. I was able to retain the ID but when I when I had inserted it back within the search results, I wasn't able to locate the calendar still. Maybe I'm placing the ID in the wrong place? Would appreciate your help!

Good Morning @Abear_Awadallah !

Please see the screenshot below:

I'm not sure what you're referencing with search results, but I had success with entering the CalendarID in the Calendar field for the Calendar Control.

 

Hope this helps you out!

Good Morning @Matthew Buchanan ,

Thank you for your response ! Unfortunately, no luck for me still. It is not able to locate the calendar even though it exists within my space. That is what shows up when I search for the Calendar ID. But thank you for your help!C1.PNG
