Work with rows in the calendar view

The calendar view displays scheduled activities and their associated details. You can view, create, and delete your activities in a day, week, or month view. For the new calendar view to be visible, the Calendar Control V2 control must be added to a table view by a system customizer or a system administrator. For more information, see Add the calendar control to tables. The Calendar Control V2 control can be added to any table.

By default, rows are displayed in a read-only grid.
