How to use the Year view
There are several ways you can use Teamup’s Yearly view. If you already have a Teamup calendar, simply use the view switcher in the top right to select Year view. Adjust the dates as needed to see the past or upcoming months. If you don’t yet have a Teamup calendar, you can create one for free here.
You can also use one of our live calendars, or use a blank calendar template. The blank calendar templates can be printed for use, or you can download a PDF or screenshot to your tablet for digital use. We have a special holiday collection of printable calendar templates available here.
A personal annual review
A weekly or monthly review can help you notice what’s working and what’s not in your daily life. Then you can adjust and improve. Regular, thoughtful review helps you to notice and eliminate distractions and non-priorities, which otherwise sneak in unnoticed and take your precious time.
An annual review is big-picture version of a weekly or monthly review. Look beyond how things are going on a daily or weekly basis; note your long-term growth rather than immediate movement. By reviewing the scope of an entire year, you get that 5,000-foot view that helps you make better long-term decisions. It’s also a good way to notice and proactively work on the bigger patterns that affect your life, productivity, and goals.

Organizational annual planning
Every organization needs a high-level view to keep growing sustainably and functioning well. Planning ahead helps organizational leadership think about the priorities, rather than responding only to urgencies. By making key decisions at the beginning of the year, you’re able to communicate, delegate, and focus on what matters most for your organization.
Financial planning is just one area that benefits from yearly proactive planning. Organizations can also do annual planning for marketing, operations, projects, sales goals, personnel hires or changes, training, operational focus, and more. Yes, a plan will need to adjust and meet reality. But starting with a clear plan makes every decision easier, and enables your team members to work at their best.
