InEvent has a calendar where all of an event's activities can be placed and scheduled between the beginning and end date of the event. The number of activities that can be posted is unlimited and event organizers can display a brief description of their activities.
This feature is not required and optional; if your event does not have a schedule, event administrators can disable this function so event attendees will not see a calendar on their mobile application.
