It is possible to use the calendar for showing events.
It is also possible to use a sidebar to show events.
But the most flexible and sophisticated way to present data from the calendar is using one of the displays.
You could in fact "hide" the calendar for the ordinary user, and only use the display to present data.
( You can shift between display1 and 2 visning1 - visning2 )
The site is in Danish, but the text itself is not important.
Important is the flexibility in setting a display up.

- the timezone
- the default user interface language
- the first day of the week (Sunday or Monday)
