Product Review: Virto SharePoint Calendar Web Part


Virto SharePoint Calendar Web Part enables users to view all of their events from multiple data sources such as SharePoint Lists, Exchange Calendar, Google Calendar, SalesForce Calendar, SQL Tables or XML and have different views for your easy navigation and reference in one single calendar/or Microsoft Exchange calendars and even from SalesForce Calendars.

Virto SharePoint Calendar replaces the existing SharePoint calendar view's functionality by allowing users to specify the list or view, color code the displayed items by category of events such as internal or external, view day, week, month, year, and Gantt view.


Roll up Multiple calendars from different data sources into one Single calendar

The main added value of the SharePoint Calendar web part is the opportunity to have all the events from different data sources displayed in a single SharePoint calendar view, sparing the necessity to switch between multiple views. You can also combine all events from different SharePoint Sites into one calendar! It can show all your events from different SharePoint 2013, 2010 or 2007 lists too.  So you can manage events from different data sources in one calendar.
You don't have to synchronize all your calendars from SharePoint, Google, Microsoft Exchange, SalesForce and etc. Install Virto SharePoint Calendar web part and show all the events from multiple data sources in a single place. Use as SharePoint Calendar data sources SharePoint lists from different site collections, SQL tables, Google calendar, XML source, SharePoint lists from other farm, Exchange calendar, SalesForce calendar. This is in comparison to most other SharePoint calendars that can only use one data source, and be displayed in only one view. To distinguish events from different sources in Virto SharePoint Calendar Web Part, one can use multi-level color coding.

Different calendar views (Day, Week, Work Week, Month, Year, Task)

Use appropriate timescale for showing your calendar events. Task view allows to control the status of tasks in your SharePoint Calendar web part. If you need to change the duration of the event, modify the size of the cell to the required direction and length. To change the date, simply select the appropriate date in the mini calendar. All of these features will help you save time and complete your calendar tasks with the greatest convenience. 
Virto provides editing features that will make working with SharePoint easy and pleasant. If you need to change the date of the event, simply drag and drop it to the appropriate calendar cell. To change the event in time frame in SharePoint Calendar, simply expand the event to incorporate the correct duration of the event.

Color coded data sources

You can visualize the events from your calendars. Customize calendar with special colors for each of data sources and your events will not join anymore! This feature is especially essential when you have more than 2 data sources in one calendar. Use any combination of RGB for coloring events according to their category.
