I’ve lost the ability in the Calendar Rollup to add a calendar. The option doesn’t show up in the tools drop down list either. I have Full Control permission on the site. If I edit page, I can see Add Calendar option, once I check in and publish though its gone.


Cause:  SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature in the Site Collection feature and SharePoint Server Publishing in Manage site feature have been enabled. In this case, the product will recognizes the site as a publish site, the menu will be only shown under Edit mode.

Solution:  Need to CHECK OUT the Calendar Rollup Web Part in Edit Page. Then the gear menu display correctly and ‘Add Calendar’ option shows up.  Status: Checked out and editable.

Applies for: SharePoint 2013, SharePoint 2010, SharePoint 2007
