TypeError in Calendar view when opening page, in Odoo version 9

I am using Odoo v9 and receive the following TypeError when I open the page to look at the calendar and also when I click on the calendar to create an event. I believe the problem is either date_start references a String and not a DateTime, or I need to specify additional fields in the Calendar view. How do I fix this issue?

My class in Python:

class Appointments(models.Model):

   apt_date_start = fields.Datetime()

   apt_date_stop = fields.Datetime()

   notes = fields.Char()

Calendar view

 <record id="fix_tribe_appointments_calendar" model="ir.ui.view">

    <field name="name">FixTribe Appointments Calendar</field>

    <field name="model">fix_tribe.appointments</field>

    <field name="arch" type="xml">

        <calendar string="Appointments"

            mode="day"   date_stop="apt_date_stop"

            date_start="apt_date_start" quick_add="False" >

            <field name="notes"/>




The error:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'type' of undefined

Hello Trevor,

You give date_start field as a Char which is wrong for the Calendar view.

Change type of apt_date_start  Char to Datetime.

apt_date_start = fields.Datetime()

and also import datetime through

from datetime import datetime


I've put out a new version (now shown in the post) that changed Char to Datetime, but the error persists. I even cascaded dropped the Appointments table, and added on an end time to see if that would work. Still doesn't
