System and Organization Calendars

In your Oro application, you can add calendars with tasks and events related to a specific user, other users in the system (subject to the roles and permissions defined), as well as events defined for the whole organization or system.

Events in the System and Organization calendars can be viewed by all the users within the system/organization. The ability to create, edit, and delete events depends on the user’s roles and capabilities.
