- Class: Shows events and deadlines for a class (e.g. DP Biology).
- Group: Shows events and deadlines for a group (e.g. Basketball Team).
- Dashboard Calendar: Shows all relevant events and deadlines for the individual user, e.g. a DP 2 student taking DP Mathematics and DP Biology will see events and deadlines for DP 2, DP Mathematics and DP Biology.
