@Untechsavy I would suggest the easiest way to do this based on the list you already have would be to create a calendar view from your list. You'll either need to use the created/modified dates as your start & end times for your calendar items otherwise you'll need to create new columns to support those values as they are required to populate the calendar. Here's a great run through of how to create a calendar view:

@Untechsavy a very easy way to do this is to use the new Calendar View function in Microsoft Lists. Under the pull-down menu for All Items, select "create new view."


A pop-up box appears where you simply name your new view, click on the calendar button, then click Create.


That's all! This is a newly released function so you may not have it yet--but you will soon. Here's a video to walk you through the steps:


Agree with this but there are some elements of functionality with Lists calender views that aren't available as with SharePoint lists (colour filtered overlays being one), but either option works!
