List experience settings

To enable the modern experience in your list or library, go to your Site Contents then click on Show actions panel of your list to open the Settings page.

Events list settings page.

Then click on Advanced settings and go at the bottom of the page to display the List experience section. Check New experience option then click OK button to validate your settings.

You can force the New or Classic view in the List experience section.

Create the calendar modern view

To create the calendar modern view, go to your events list then in the ribbon click on the Calendar tab. In the Current View section, switch to All Events to display the modern experience for the list.

Switch to All Events view to display the modern experience for the list.

Finally, we need to create a new calendar modern view as below:

Set this new view as default for the list and now you’ll be able to display it in a modern experience when users access it.

Now you can add your events in the empty list.
