A calendar is a cool way to share information with the public, to collect important information for future meetings, to save birthday dates of friends, and more.
Calendar offers option to add events from every page of its UI. The events, tasks, and notes can be viewed on a separate tab for each type. Also, views of Day, Week, and Month are offered, each defaulting to the current.
An Event is an activity to take place in a certain period of time. This could be in the past, present, or future.
A task is a special activity which is distinguished by having Priority, Status, and Percent Complete. As with events, a task can be assigned a specific period of time for duration.
