I am sure it can. I beleive the default is today only, but there are
modes for week or month, and so on. I typically either do a week or a
month at a time.

$ remind   /usr/share/remind/hal-once

But my point is that *I* control how I view it. I am not bound to an
application other than the application I have chosen. Because it is
simple text it can be wrapped in any display vehicle without a great
deal of trouble. But I like to tinker, so I don't mind making it do
*exactly* what I want, when I want. Others may not want to do anything
but a few clicks.
