'''Calendar''' is a type of [[view]] that can be used in [[Resco Mobile CRM]] app. It is available primarily for '''[[Glossary#Activity|activity]] entities''', i.e. [[entity|entities]] that include start time and end time fields that can be displayed in a calendar. However, any entity can be displayed as a calendar, if you define the appropriate [[View#Date_fields|date fields]] on the entity view.

You can define multiple calendars. A single calendar can include calendar entries from multiple entities. Each calendar can have different activity entities displayed and different constraints and rules applied.

Calendars can be added to the app project in several ways:
 +
* You can define one or more "global" calendars that you can add as a menu item to the [[home screen]]. Global calendars can contain activities from several entities, for example, appointments and tasks.
 +
* For entities that have the start date and end date fields defined, app users can flip the view to display the records as a calendar.
 +
* This calendar view is also available when you add an associated or unrelated entity list as a tab to a form.

You can select the default entity and the initial view that will be set each time the calendar is opened. A newly created calendar usually comes with suitable entities preconfigured, but you can click '''Add Entity''' to include other activities, as long as they have the [[View#Date_fields|date fields]] defined.
