The Calendar view is a feature available exclusively for Premium users. Users on the free plan cannot create or use the Calendar view. If your account doesn’t have access to the premium features, you cannot use the Calendar unless you upgrade your plan.

This allows you to customize the appearance of the cards based on your specific needs, providing effective and targeted information delivery.
Customizations for field display are saved for each view, so you can have different preferences for your data without affecting all your views. Each modification to the view is saved, so you can easily refer back to it.
To show or hide a field in a calendar view,
The Labels button toggles between two modes: hidden mode, where the toggle is greyed out and switched to the left, and showing mode, where the toggle is green and switched to the right.
You can toggle individual record fields or use the Hide all and Show all buttons to choose what fields you want your calendar to display.
You can also change the order of the fields on the cards by clicking and dragging the drag handles next to the field names.
The Displayed by [field] option in the view bar lets you know which field is currently used for the calendar view.
To change the calendar view’s associated date field, click the calendar icon in the view bar to bring up the date picker. Then select a new date field from one of the table’s date fields to place dates on the calendar.
Use a date formula field to specify the dates to display. This allows you to specify the criteria for displaying the cards.
By using a date formula field, you can choose a date field you would like to use for a Calendar view while taking into account elements such as weekdays, weekends, specific dates, and even unique conditions.
A Calendar view can be shared with anyone once it has been created. When sharing the view, you can control how others see what you share by using Filters or Hide fields.
