When to add new sub-calendars

To open and manage a new project

  • You can create a folder to hold all sub-calendars related to the project.
  • Assign project goals and tasks to team members.
  • Keep an eye on project milestones and zoom in on daily details.

To manage a new resource or tool

  • Add a new sub-calendar for any new resource, tool, or equipment.
  • Easily schedule the use of the resource with add-only booking.
  • Prevent double-booking with sub-calendar settings.

To limit scheduled use of a shared space

  • Add one sub-calendar for each “open slot” (allowed person per time period).
  • Helpful when working with limited occupancy or other restrictions on a space.
  • Block out unavailable time for maintenance or cleaning.

To coordinate with and manage team schedules

  • Add one sub-calendar for each team member for easier delegation.
  • Let each team member add their own days off, available times, meetings, etc.
  • Use comments on events for notes visible to the whole team.
