Share from event page to another Teamup Calendar

In September we introduced the option to share an event to another Teamup that you have the modify permission. This option is now also available on the event page independent of the original calendar. You would need to be logged in to your user account in order to use this. Your dashboard would be open and you can select the calendar that you want to share or save the event to.

We are always humbled and grateful to receive encouragement and feedback from users around the world. It’s been hard to keep up with sharing the kind words! So we started @teamupthanks to say thank you back to our users.

Who uses Teamup?

Teamup users are diverse groups. They’re from all around the globe. Among them are thinkers and doers, learners and leaders, organizers and teachers, designers and makers. We are so thankful for the opportunity to be of service and for the feedback that keeps us motivated to do our best to make life easier. Here are a few highlights we’d like to share.

Teachers, makers, and service providers

From coding software to creating a great product, teaching students, or providing excellent service, Teamup users are makers, doers, and thinkers. They share their knowledge in many ways and work creatively.

"We have been using the calendar to provide links and details for online classes so that our students can look through and access the ones relevant to them. It has made life 10 times easier than sending individual links out by email…" Thanks Bobbi! #teamup4scheduling #schools

Many Teamup calendars now book online sessions, tutoring events, and workshops, helping staff, students, and workers stay organized and making communication easier.

"We are trying to devise a calendar system to show all of the communications across campus … After experimenting with your free version we think Teamup could be a very useful solution." Thanks Brian! #campuscalendar #keepuptodate #COVID19

Event managers and conference organizers

Many Teamup calendars are used for hosting, organizing, and promoting virtual events. Since virtual events are a big part of everyone’s life now, more and more of our users are finding Teamup helpful for online meetings, workshops, and more.

"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." Thank you Ben! #virtualevents #Conference

I’ve been using Teamup to organise a couple of virtual conference programs – a nice thing about it is that it automatically adjusts to the local timezone of users, and because virtual conferences happen across multiple timezones this has made it much easier for people as they don’t need to do any timezone calculations for themselves.”

Community organizers and volunteers

It’s a good thing to remind ourselves that, all over the world, people are ready and willing to help each other. We are thrilled when Teamup can be part of good work, non-profit organizations, and community initiatives.

"Thank you, you have a great product and I do use it in another volunteer group that I work with, and it works very well." Thank you Anne! #volunteering #calendar

Researchers and team leaders

Scientific research teams–both on the field and in the lab–use Teamup to stay coordinated. Recently, as research teams at many universities and institutes are re-opening their research labs with safety guidelines, Teamup has been a tool for booking shared space and equipment.

"We really like how Teamup can display multiple shared calendars on one main calendar interface, as it seems to be a great fit for our situation of needing to coordinate shifts for many lab members across several lab spaces." Thank you Soma! #shifts #Teamup4managingavailability
