About SharePoint Calendar
A calendar in SharePoint site can be considered more or less like a whiteboard calendar that is placed in a hallway.
Just like anyone who has access to the public space (hallway), can access the calendar, similarly anyone having access to the SharePoint site can access the calendar as and when required.
So, users having access to the calendar in SharePoint can update it accordingly with project deadlines, vacation schedules, birthdays and more depending on the requirement.

If you want to access an existing SharePoint site calendar, the same can be done via Quick Launch. All you need doing is to go to Quick Launch > Lists > Calendar.
However, if you have just started and are yet to create a new calendar then that’s easy too.
We will discuss the steps to create a new SharePoint calendar in the next section.
