The calendar can not be used to edit appointments directly. Click on an agreement to open the details of the agreement (and possibly edit).
Appointments can be linked to companies, contacts, projects, opportunities and more. When you create appointments from the calendar, you will have to select the entities to link to (context) as the calendar in itself is not aware of the context - except that you are the user.
