The Calendar portlet generally works the way you would expect a calen-
dar to work. It inherits its interface from the rest of Liferay's portlet library,
so you should find common tasks in the same place that you find them in
other Liferay portlets.

To get started, you may want to click the Permissions button. Here you
can find a list of roles with check boxes denoting whether the role has the
Add Event or the Export All Events permission. By default, only the owner has
permissions to do these things, which means that, by default, the Calendar
portlet is set up to be used in one's personal space. Out of the box, Liferay
defaults to putting a Calendar portlet on all users' private pages, so this is
expected. If you are going to be using the Calendar as a shared calendar, you
may want to modify some things here.
First, create a portal, community, or organization role and add the users
to whom you wish to grant access to the calendar to the role. Then come
back to the Calendar portlet and click the Permissions button. Check the boxes
next to the role(s) that should have access to one or both of the functions
(Add Event or Export All Events). Then click Submit.
Now you are ready to begin using your calendar. Click the Add Event
button. You will see a form that allows you to fill out all the information for
your event.

Start Date/Time: The date and time the event starts.
Duration: How long the event will last.
All Day Event: Check this box to disassociate time from the event and

make it last all day.

Time Zone Sensitive: Leave this box checked to make sure that the
portal keeps track of the event regardless of time zone.
Title: The title of the event.
Description: A description of the event.

Type: Select from a number of pre-configured event types. You can
change these in the portal-ext.properties file.
Permissions: Determine who can view and edit the event.
Repeat: If the event repeats on a schedule, select the schedule (daily,

weekly, monthly. etc.)

End Date: If the event repeats on a schedule but there is an end to the
set of meetings, enter the end date.
Reminders: Select whether to send a reminder, how long before the
event to send it, and through what medium (email, SMS text message, or
instant message) to send it. Note that this feature is integrated with your
profile on the portal, so you will need to fill out your mobile phone number
and / or instant messenger IDs in order to use those features.
When you have finished adding your event, click Save.
You can view calendar events by day, week, month, year, or in a simple
