Bug Description

Now that we're starting to use the Global Staff Calendar, I'm finding some design oversights. I'm creating tickets for them so that they don't get lost in the pile. We need a "More" indicator for the the Global Staff Calendar month view. Right now, because the month view has fixed size squares, we can only fit a maximum of 5 events in each day square. Yet, frequently we have have days that have more than 5 events. If you are looking at the calendar in the month view, which is probably the most common view, there is no way of knowing that there are more events on that day. It would be helpful to have some sort of indicator that tells you that's there's more events on that day. Some sort of symbol that you can mouse over to see a pop-up that says something like "Plus 5 other events". It could be a symbol or a change to the date number in the box, but we need some way of letter users know that there's more to see if they click on the detailed day view.

Implemented on branch ree-calendar-more-events-link.

Some remarks:

- this works identically both in the Staff, and the normal (narrow) calendars

- The More link is only shown if there are overflow events in that box, and it also displays how many events are hidden.

- The More link brings to the list view of the day. I found this will be better and more consistent solution for us on long term, than the original proposal of redirecting to the Calendar (non-list) view.

- Similarly to how this works in the month view, we can introduce similar links in the calendar UI whenever there is a possibility of overflowing events. (For example: in the day view, a slot can also fill up if there are many events contained by it, etc.)
