The new Calendar is a full-sized, drag & drop calendar. It uses AJAX to fetch events on-the-fly for each month/week/day.
Select from the filters to change the date range and items displayed according to type, category, status and assign to. Items are tasks, events, sales opportunities or jobs which have been entered and scheduled to a day and time. You'll see items in the calendar. Click on the item to see the details of the item. You can switch between the calendar and timeline view any time.
