The search within the calendar is not only great for finding specific events, assignments or credentials, but it also works as a great way to display everything going on in a list view.
Within search, you'll see a complete record of all of your events, assignments and credentials, in order of due date.
Remember, the search will display based on your filter configuration on the left side, and the events filters available depend on your permissions.
To search, simply start typing and the search results will filter down to match your search string.
Click a specific event, assignment or credential to open to details pane. From there, you can view pertinent information, and hop directly to the event, assignment or credential.
