Use an events list to post information about dates that are important for your team. You can copy or link events from an events list to a calendar program that is compatible with Windows SharePoint Services, such as Microsoft Office Outlook 2003.
By default, creating a SharePoint site creates an events list called Events, a view of which appears on the home page (home page: The main page of a Web site. A home page usually has hyperlinks to other pages, both inside and outside the site.) of your site. You can create and access additional views of this list from the Customize Events page. Past events disappear from the home page but are still available on the All Items view of the Events list.
Note The features on your site may vary, based on the template your site uses.
