Entity List Calendar View allows rendering of an entity list as a calendar, with each individual record configured to act as a single event.

In order for records to be displayed using a calendar, those records need to have at a minimum a date field on them.  In order for events to have exact start and end times, then the appropriate fields need to be in place, and so on.  Assuming these fields are configured, then an Entity Calendar view will appear on the portal

Note that the Calendar view can be used to present individual Event Schedules, and will also make use of Details Views, and Entity Permissions if configured to do so.
