Since I started managing people, I spend a lot of time looking at my calendar!
Here's some shortcuts I use a lot:
- m: month view
- w: week view
- d: day view
- n: next (if you're in month view, it jumps to next month, if you're in week view, it jumps to next week, etc)
- p: previous
- t: jump to today
The first thing I do in the morning is to look at what's in for today--this way I make sure I don't forget to attend important meetings because I get deep down into something else and then I forget. So I will press "d" and "t" to get the calendar to 'day view' plus 'today'.
I use the other shortcuts to quickly flip between dates when I'm booking new events or to find what is upcoming.
There are also shortcuts to create and edit events but I found them not very useful as you still have to modify the time and date of event anyway-I find it easier to use the mouse to schedule this.
