Working With Views and Feeds → Using Calendar Views → Creating Calendar Feeds
You can create calendar feeds that show work items in a calendar format based on data in Date/Time fields. For example, you can show work items on a calendar based on a Due Date field.
Calendar feeds are based on single applications, but you can add multiple calendar feeds to a global or application view. This enables you to clearly see date-based information for items across all applications.
Use feed criteria to filter work items shown in the a calendar as needed. (Data returned by feeds is dependent on each user's privileges to view and work with work items.)
To create a calendar feed:
Select to return work items from selected projects, and then select the projects.
To add a single project, hover over the project, and then click the Plus sign.
To add a project and all of its subprojects, hover over the parent project, and then click the check mark ().
You can also add parent projects, and then select the Include sub-projects check box.
Select to return work items from user's the preferred projects list.
Select to return work items from any project within the feed's application context.
Select to return items owned by the user viewing the feed.
Choose to return items owned by a specific set of groups () or users ().
Select to return items owned by any user.
Submitter in Chad Release Engineer
Submit Date > Starrtof_thisyear
Returns work items that Chad Release Manager submitted AND the submit date is greater than the start of the current year.
Select fields that represent the start and, optionally, end dates for work items you want to view.
Choose a default event color for all calendar entries. You can also choose a selection- or user-type field from the Field Event Color list, and then specify a different color for each selection or user. For example, select a Release Engineer field, and select a different color for each user assigned to this field. This enables you to quickly see who owns different items.
Select a default event icon to show for all work items. You can also choose a selection- or user-type field from the Field Event Icon list, and then specify a different icon for each selection or user.
Use these options to determine which information is shown on the calendar for each work item. By default, Value Display Format is selected. Your administrator defines which information in included in the value display format. Clear this check box to choose up to two different display fields.
Provide a name for your feed.
Set the feed as private or public. Private feeds are visible only to the author; public feeds can be viewed by others users, but only the author and administrators can modify public feeds.
Text provided here is shown to users when the select feeds for their views.
