How do you remove system fields in a SharePoint calenar?

Is it possible to remove the default system fields (reoccuring events, all day events...) from a Sharepoint calendar?  I attached a screenshot of the fields I am referring to.

You can remove those fileds from the views by editing each view and deselecting them.

To remove them from the Add and Edit forms, you will have to modify the form in SharePoint Designer or add a Content Editor web part and use CSS and/or javascript to hide them. I wouldn't recommend deleting the actual columns as you will probably break a lot of things if you do. This would have to be done programmatically in any case as those columns aren't exposed in the List Settings.

Hope this helps.

You do not get the option to deselect any fields when creating a new view using a calendar or a list, creating a calendar view.

When you create a new View based on Calendar, or when you are displaying a list using the Calendar View, those fields are not present. They only show up when you create a new or edit an existing item, so you would have to modify the NewForm.aspx or EditForm.aspx to hide them as I previously suggested.

If I am not understanding what you are asking, please post a screenshot of the entire window, including the page name (i.e. pagename.aspx, etc) where you want the fields to disappear from.

Hope this helps.

As I mentioned, you'll have to modify the New and Edit forms to hide those fields, rather than deleting them.
There is an article at http://p2p.wrox.com/content/articles/customizing-sharepoint-2010-list-forms-infopath-2010  that explains how to modify the forms using InfoPath 2010. Unfortunately, I don't have a 2010 dev box to test this on, so can't walk you through it step by step. Sorry, but hope this is enough to get you started.

Good luck!

You shouldn't assign points if the advice given doesn't help you fix your problem. It would help in troubleshooting, however, if you would respond more quickly. I didn't hear anything for two months, and then just got a very generic reply that it didn't fix the problem. More detail would definitely help next time.
