Hello, we have recently started adding modern pages to one of our classic team sites. We have a change control calendar with many custom fields tied to an approval workflow process. When we try to visualize this with the Events Webpart we do not receive the custom fields in the add new event page. Will we ever be able to see these or should we expect to have fall back to classic calendar pages for the unforeseen future?

Can someone elaborate on this? Will this change in the near future? When you click on See All, the default is one month out from today, any way to change the default? See All is ALL of the events. And customizing what is being shown would be great.

Yes, would be great to be able to change the default view to All events and not just the upcoming month.

I have the exact same requirement for my calendar. I would like to filter by another column aside from Category. Does anyone know if this feature will be available soon?

I wanted to piggyback on this thread because having the ability to customize the layout of the Event would be extremely helpful. When using these modern pages, while they look awesome, I'm struggling with the limitations on the ability to customize a lot of the web parts.

Same here... Love the new look of events but it needs to include our custom fields.

I would like this ability as well. One of my customers would like to see custom fields in the event details. Any idea from MS when this would be possible?

Hi @Robert Woods and everyone else. I'll need to loop in our web parts lead ( @John Sanders ) who can best help decipher what might be happening with how the various web parts behave when using them on modern pages within classic sites.
In the mean time, did you consider moving the site into a full modern state? Or good reason to keep it classic?

@John Sanders Thanks so much for the response Sir. It will help us all plan accordingly.

Also looking to do this. Frustrating as with each incarnation of SharePoint, the features for customisation seem to be more and more difficult to apply.

Like everyone else, I concur that we need to see enhancements to see custom fields on event form and calendar. Hope you can add soon. Thank you

@John Sanders Thank you for the update. I would also be interested in having the custom fields. Moreover, since the "add event" doesn't use the correct form, is it possible to have it removed completely? That way, the web part could show the events, but users aren't putting in "incomplete data" by using the wrong form/process.

Agreed. It's now 2023, and it is still not there. You can add columns to the events list, and even filter on the managed property you added, but you just cannot get this site columns to show in the Event Add form. I need it, and it should be such an easy fix....... @#^@^#%

You can filter on added managed properties.
Filter a highlighted content webpart on managed property like: owstaxIdEvent0020Category Equals GP0|#11768280-33d6-46e1-a323-f2916fdccc0a
In this case I added a managed metadata lookup column called "Event Category"
owstaxIdEvent0020Category is the technical property name of this metadata hive and GP0|#11768280-33d6-46e1-a323-f2916fdccc0a is the ID of the choice you want to filter on.
Very cumbersome Microsoft!
