Crowd will automatically fill some things into Confluence, but users can
also edit their own information. Also, users can have their own personal
spaces showing all sorts of information, see for example
very old screenshot of personal spaces from when they first went in).
Not sure if you can modify it to show things like permissions granted,
but I doubt it's impossible...Confluence is pretty customizable.

These are integrated throughout Confluence by default. (Called
"Labels".) These are then accessed via plugins or macros, so you can see
e.g. a cloud of all labels, or a cloud of labels in one particular space.

I've been using Team Calendars at work. It started out without a lot of
functionality, but has been maturing quite rapidly. They now have
permissions support; they're working on adding support for
invitations/meeting requests, and (I think, and I hope) for adding
support for CalDAV so you can natively integrate in e.g. Lightning or
iCal. (They do have .ics file support currently.)
You can also hook this up with JIRA to get automatically populated
calendars based on JIRA issues and (I think) versions/milestones.
