I would like to be able to create a calendar view, which shows multiple date columns. It would also be nice to apply colors or categories to various cells or columns.

The end goal here is to be able to layer all the different Date field types on a tab from a single view.

Use case:

I might indicate in a tab when a client joined, when their contract ends, when my last communication with them was, product launch date, etc. I’d like to see all my events from one view or choose which ones to hide.

+1 On This!

We have a need to view a calendar with different date columns as well.
And yes, if they different date fields could be colored (to differentiate between them), that would be AMAZING!

Matt from Airtable here. We are currently planning out improvements to Calendar View including support for multiple date fields from the same table.

These improvements will be available in beta in a couple months.

So this is cool, but now I’m trying to view multiple calendars in one view. Just how in Outlook I can view my personal calendar layered with my team calendar layered with our organization’s calendar, I want to be able to view the calendars from different tabs in one work space at the same time - is this possible? I’ve tried getting these dates into one tab so I can use this feature of multiple date fields in one tab, but theres tons of challenges with this with both redundancy and clarity. Has anyone else figured this out?
