How to setup different calendar views in sharepoint.


I would like to setup different views in a group calendar, that has multiple users in this. It default to the week view but I would also like to have the month and year view as well.

I have followed this article ( as was suggested from other question)
I am getting an error when entering the formula

I put in the Column name
Select = Calculated (calculation based on other columns)
Then I enter the following formula in the formula field
=DATE(YEAR([Due Date]), MONTH([Due Date]), 1)
Then I select Date and Time and then date only
Unselect add to all content types
When I click OK. I get the following error message
"Sorry, something went wrong

The formula refers to a column that does not exist. Check the formula for spelling mistakes or change the non-existing column to an existing column.

I can click on the x to close the window.

I see the article refers to Sharepoint 2010 ( Ithink). I am using Sharepoint 2013

Try creating a new column of Date/Time data type and name it 'Date'.
Once you have created this column you can delete it.
Try your formula again. Sometimes this will resolve your problem.
Are you changing the column in SharePoint List Settings or are you using SharePoint Designer or InfoPath to change any of the list properties.  If so these tools could cause problems if you are editing the list in both.

Also,  If you have access to Central Administration you might want to confirm that Sharepoint is fully patched and up to date. SharePoint does start to behave erratically if the database is in an inconsistent state or the last update did not succeed.  You can verfiy both by going to Central Admin:

1. 'Upgrade and Migration|Review Database status' All content database should have a status of 'No action required'

2. 'Upgrade and Migration|Check Upgrade Status' Status of last upgrade should be 'Succeeded'
