A calendar view is displayed based on a date field or date-time field in your form. You can create a calendar view by specifying the event start time, for time based events like appointments or by specifying the event "Start Date", for "all day" events like birthdays, anniversaries or by specifying the Start/End dates for events that extend beyond a single day. You can view the events by day, by week, and by month. You can reschedule the event Start/End dates by simple drag-n-drop of the horizontal bar and also easily scroll through to see other events that precede or follow the day, week, month you're in.
