Share This Posts

Timely is the answer to elevate your MicroSoft SharePoint and Power Pages website with dynamic event calendars and widgets. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the seamless integration of Timely on your SharePoint and Power Pages website, allowing you to showcase events, manage schedules, and captivate your audience. Let’s dive into the easy steps to embed Timely content into SharePoint and Power Pages.

1. What is SharePoint? What is Power Pages?

SharePoint is a robust collaboration platform developed by Microsoft. It allows organizations to create, share, and manage content and applications. With its flexibility and integration capabilities, SharePoint is widely used for secure intranets, document and file management, and collaboration platforms. The platform offers rich integration capabilities, particularly with the Microsoft 365 suite, making it a comprehensive solution for organizations looking to enhance productivity, ensure data security, and foster a collaborative workplace culture.

On the other hand, Microsoft Power Pages stands out as a newer, dynamic solution aimed at simplifying the creation of both public-facing and internal websites. Power Pages excels in its ease of use, enabling users with varying technical expertise to design, develop, and deploy sophisticated websites with minimal coding. Its strengths lie in its rich set of templates and design tools, which are intuitive yet powerful, allowing for the quick launch of professional-looking sites. The platform supports a wide array of functionalities, including data integration and advanced security features, making it suitable for building interactive and data-driven web applications.

2. Full Calendar vs Widgets Embedding

When it comes to showcasing events, Timely offers over a dozen calendar views, which can be as full-scale calendars or mini calendars adapted as smaller widgets. Slider and carousel widgets can also be employed to enhance the design and presentation of events on your SharePoint and Power Pages websites.

A full-scale calendar usually spans an entire page. Being an expansive calendar version, it allows room for several calendar functions, such as date and keyword search, calendar subscription, and filters.

The mini calendar widget views are smaller and require less space. Usually they only display a limited number of upcoming events, and have no search or filtering functions.

Additionally, you can use Timely slider and carousel widgets to further spruce up the design. These widgets can definitely help you showcase your events in an attractive way.

All options can be used individually or together to create a seamless experience for your website visitors.

3. How to Add Full Calendar Views to SharePoint and Power Pages

When it comes to integrating Timely, using a javascript embed code is a breeze. However, this type of integration is not currently supported by SharePoint. Fortunately, Power Pages provides the solution you need. By installing your Timely Calendar on a private Power Pages webpage and linking it to your desired SharePoint page, you can easily showcase it to your intranet users.

Since both solutions are part of the Microsoft suite of products, SharePoint logged users will seamlessly access the Power Pages page without any disruption. Moreover, this option may come at no additional cost to your organization depending on your subscription plan with Microsoft.

3.1 Install Timely Code into your Power Pages Website
