The Report Viewer can be configured to display report information in a multitude of ways.  This gives the user freedom to choose a mode that is appropriate for the situation and information.  The Calendar Summary mode displays the information in a standard calendar format based on user selected settings.
Example
The goal of this example is to:

  1. Edit an existing report.

  2. Display the report information in Calendar mode.

To begin, navigate to a Designer Folder and click the Edit link on an existing report.
