New Agenda link parameter
Calendar link parameters allow you to customize calendar links and overwrite global settings for that link without changing the calendar settings. Append the link parameter to the calendar link; then save it in your bookmarks to use or share as needed.
We’ve introduced a new link parameter which lets you control the date range shown when viewing your calendar in Agenda or List view. You can also choose whether the header and event details are shown.

How to choose the best calendar view
Teamup Calendar has 10 unique calendar views. Work with the classic calendar views (Day, Week, and Month). Use the calendar timeline view or unique schedule view in columns. Calendar views with options make your calendar more useful: for example, you can use the multi-month view to show a quarterly or fiscal year calendar.
Scheduling for maximum occupancy Covid restrictions
Managing research teams under Covid-19 restrictions is a scheduling challenge. Use of the shared lab space must be carefully scheduled to stay within maximum number of people allowed in the lab at one time. Everyone needs a chance to use the equipment and lab resources. Often, a strict pre-set schedule does not work; flexibility and availability may change.
Many research teams are using Teamup to schedule shared lab space, equipment, and resources while adhering to Covid-19 health and safety regulations. Here’s how you can do the same with your research partners.
