October Updates: Conference agendas, Zapier integration, improved export

October feature updates and news for Teamup calendar

As seasons change, we’re continually making changes and improvements so Teamup is the best calendar for you. This month, our Zapier integration, how to create a personalized conference schedule, a new user menu on our Android app, and improvements all around.

What’s new this month

“We have been using TeamUp for our service scheduling for months and I want to commend you on a great product. It not only has been a lifesaver for our service technicians, but also our office staff in communication when things change and helps greatly take care of our customers in such an easy manner.” – Angela

Product Updates

New! User menu on Android app

New user menu

The Teamup mobile app for Android has a fresh addition: a new user menu, which can be opened from the user icon in the top right corner. We’ve moved those important user functions–like login and log out and your dashboard–to this handy menu. This allows the left calendar menu to be more streamlined and focused on your calendar.

We hope you’ll love the new arrangement!

Improvements: export, Timeline view, repeating events

One of our most powerful and unique calendar views is even better.

A few noteworthy improvements rolled out this month:

  • Export and import when using the iCalendar format now supports custom event fields. You can use this ability to transfer events–with all custom fields included–from one Teamup calendar to another Teamup calendar. Make sure the custom fields have the same names in the source calendar and destination calendar.
  • Do you already love the Timeline view? Get ready to love it even more. Our latest update increases performance and speed for the Timeline view. If you’re not already using this unique, powerful calendar view, try a live demo.
  • New and improved time zone management for repeating events: We’ve now added the ability to manually set the time zone for recurring events. This is important when creating events for individuals in multiple time zones, since daylight savings times (DST) has different dates in different regions. Learn more.

“I adore your software and have been promoting it to many of my colleagues. My work often involves virtual events like workshops, summits, and conferences that last days or even weeks, where there is an element of self-organizing involved, and yours is the best software I have found for supporting that.” – Ben

Conference Agenda for Content Marketing World

View the live conference agenda on Teamup.

Check out this Guide to Using the CM World Agenda for the Content Marketing World 2020, a virtual conference with hundreds of speakers on a wide range of topics. To make the most of a conference with many options for speakers, lectures, workshops, and other events, it’s good to plan your own personal conference schedule.

“Because this year’s event is virtual, you do not need to select your schedule in advance, but we do recommend planning your week ahead of time for an easier time navigating the virtual platform.”

“Two of my friends and I attend two conferences each year and like to track what sessions we are all in, so we can maximize on the sessions attended. We also like to know where we are so we can also put in our social calendar during the time we’re together. Teamup helped us this year to do that.”
