From the Calendar, you can see scheduled posts in a monthly view, or access a daily view by tapping on a date in the calendar (ex. September 30th). On Android, click the blue pencil icon in the lower left-hand corner. At this time, we don't support a weekly view in the mobile version of the calendar, but there is a daily view.
