I have two SharePoint communication sites.  "Site A" has an event web part on it.  "Site B" does as well and it also has events.  the "Site A" web part is setup to display the events from "Site B".

Only the user who edited the "Site A" page sees the events from "Site B" in the web part.  Even site admins.  In order for a second site admin to see the events, they had to go to "Site A" edit the page, make a change to the web part setting, and republish the page.  Only then did the events show for the second site admin.

 

Most our site visitors are guest accounts.  If they navigate directly to "Site B" they can see the events.  But on "Site A" the events don't populate.  Site visitors can't edit the page, so what we did above for site admins isn't an option, and would be a pain.

Has anyone else seen this type of behavior?  Were you able to work around it?
