Issue provisioning SharePoint site with PnP - calendar webpart displaying as listview

New Contributor

Hi,

 

I am having an issue with the PnP provisioning of a on premise SharePoint 2013 site from an XML template.  The site provisions correctly but the calendar web part displays as a list view.

 

Template SiteTemplate SiteProvisioned SiteProvisioned Site

 

Though if you edit the provisioned page you can apply the calendar view successfully, though this is not an option as we are looking to provision a large amount of sites.

 

The steps involved where:

 

1) Export XML template with Get-PnPProvisioningTemplate

2) Create sites 

3) Console application runs picks up sites and apply provisioned template

 

The web part template XML is:

<pnp:WebPart Order="1" Title="Calendar" Zone="Zone3">
        <pnp:Contents>
          <WebPart xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/WebPart/v2">

i guess it is on a normal page where you put the webpart it default shows the standaard default view if you want to change you have to change the hidden view.

Thanks

Hi Amy,

Did you ever figure this out?
