What’s the difference between a master calendar and sub-calendars?

If you go to our page How Teamup Is Different, you see the picture below.

A screenshot explaining the difference between a master calendar and sub-calendars.
The whole of this picture is the master calendar; it can contain many sub-calendars, shown in the left sidebar.

The whole (shown above) is a master calendar like those in our gallery. (You can create your own here: the basic plan is free.)

Sub-calendars are individual calendars that are contained within your master calendar. You can create multiple sub-calendars, and organize them in folders. In the picture above, Area #1, on the left,  shows a list of the color-coded sub-calendars. You can delete, modify, deactivate, and share sub-calendars, as you wish. Your master calendar, which gives you access to Settings and allows you to create new sub-calendars, needs to contain at least one sub-calendar. The rest is up to you.

To view all your master calendars in one place, sign up for a free Teamup user account. With a user account, you have a calendar dashboard. You can add your Teamup calendars–both those you created, and those which have been shared with you–to your calendar dashboard, for quick and easy access from any browser. See more about user accounts.

Note: There are no direct links between master calendars, although you can use inbound iCalendar feeds to view calendar data from another master calendar or consolidate events from multiple master calendars for read-only access. Enterprise customers with multiple master calendars may benefit from consolidated billing while allowing each master calendar to be administered by the respective group independently.
