SharePoint Events List

I have a list that contains Start Date and End Date. Some items have dates that span from one day or one week to the next. The view groups by Start Date as shown in Sample1. I'd like items that span several days to show under each heading.

MS is doing something similar to this in the Calendar List. Using the Reoccuring field causes items in the Calendar List view to show on multiple days.

Is it possible to get this same behavior in a Standard List view?


If you go to our website you'll see April 4th has an item "REFUNDS - Drop/Withdrawl" Starts on the 4th and goes until the 15th. This is the item we would like to display on each day.

As you mentioned , the event has a unique start and end dates.

If an event spans more than one day , and still want to show under many days.

Select the recurrence option
Do not select the whole day  event.

Start date would be (any given date and time (like 12:01 am)
End Date  will be the same date with time e will 11:59 pm )

the recurrence would be the number of days.

that should take care of it

Best of luck.

Thanks for the reply! I'm still trying to figure this out.

I have a demo calendar that use reoccurance. When an item is added to the calendar as re occurring and while viewing via Calendar view items span days. If i create a list view and group by start date or occurrence items are displayed on a single day with a circular arrow next to the item depicting the item is reoccurring.

The problem is, when the day passes an item that may two weeks long never show up after the date has passed.

I understand your question now.

Ok ,so the answer I have is , either use Access or outlook (from the actions menu) to create multiple copies of the one day event .
or use SharePoint designer and convert the view to xslt data view  and that can be changed to show the recurrence  as single items but you will have to put a hard limit on how many to display per view.

Best of luck

Was hoping not to have to use SPD and XSLT.
