The org-mode manual (8.2.1 The date/time prompt) documents this keyboard
command for selecting dates for scheduling using the calendar:

    S-<right>/<left>     One day forward/backward.

However, the documentation string for `org-schedule' (which is the
command that pops up the calendar) doesn't talk about this at all:

  "Insert the SCHEDULED: string with a timestamp to schedule a TODO item.
With argument REMOVE, remove any scheduling date from the item.
With argument TIME, scheduled at the corresponding date.  TIME can
either be an Org date like \"2011-07-24\" or a delta like \"+2d\"."

The function `org-read-date' goes into a bit more detail, but it doesn't
describe this particular behavior either (and isn't it isn't linked to from
the documentation for `org-schedule'):

...
While prompting, a calendar is popped up - you can also select the
date with the mouse (button 1).  The calendar shows a period of three
months.  To scroll it to other months, use the keys `>' and `<'.
If you don't like the calendar, turn it off with
       \(setq org-read-date-popup-calendar nil)
...

Furthermore, and more confusingly, C-h m pressed in the minibuffer after
running `org-schedule' doesn't describe this command either.  If you
happen to know the command, you can type C-h k S-<right> RET
to get this explanation:

<S-right> runs the command #[nil "\300\301!\207" [org-eval-in-calendar
(calendar-forward-day 1)] 2 nil nil], which is an interactive compiled
Lisp function.

It seems like there are several missing steps in the documentation.
