There are different options on how to display your calendars such as day, work week, week, month or schedule views.
The Calendar app allows you to set custom reminders for how often you want to get reminded of a particular event or not at all. You can also create recurring events such as every second Tuesday of the month. Multiple calendars separated by different colours can help tell events apart easily. Events will carry across to all devices you have the calendar enabled on such as mobiles and tablets.
