I have a business partner who is looking to have a list where they track tasks that are assigned to their team members.  This will include:

Task name

Task assigned to

Opened date

Due date

etc

 

They want the ability to view this as a standard list, with all tasks included - BUT - they also want the ability to view this as a calendar, with each person's assigned tasks represented in a different color. 

My first thought was Overlays - but then they stated they also wanted the ability to view all of the tasks in a complete list.

They are running on SharePoint Foundation site.

 

Any thoughts?  Thanks in advance!

@Dan Barnett I can't recall if this is a Foundation feature or Enterprise, Create a new view on the task list and there may be "Calendar View" in there. Fill in the data for Begin/End date, then title to show on Month/Week/Day breakdown and voila, calendar view on tasks list.
