Can I have a Sheet or Report default to Calendar View


I have a Sheet and/or Report that I would like to open in Calendar View. At the moment, each time I open it, I have to change the setting from Grid to Calendar. Is there a setting that will allow it to launch straight into Calendar view?

    Click Share, then at the bottom of the window that pops up there is a place to select the default view. I believe that this should apply to anyone who opens the sheet, including you, not only the people who are shared.

    Thanks Michael

    Unfortunately, after opening the report and selecting Share, I see where I can Invite Collaborators, the list of current Collaborators, and the Report link --> but I do not see an option for default view.

    Hi @Bruce Case

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Here's a possible workaround or workarounds

    • Save the URL of the view that you want to open
    • Use the publish option (only view)

    Would any of those options work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
