How-to select player level calendar tags and use calendar schedule views - Example Oct 24

A number of people are stating they can't see their players level on the Hockey Calendar schedule.  Please see document on instructions how to set the correct tag for your player(s) view.  Also in the instruction, it shows 3 examples on the calendar view after selecting your tags.
