December Updates: event comments icon, active links, and Zap templates

December monthly updates from Teamup calendar

It’s the season when we take time to think back over the year. And what a year it has been!

Surely none of us could have anticipated all the challenges and changes. While uncertainty still lies ahead, we have seen a global community come together to work together and care for each other.

Happy holidays from all of us.

What’s new this month

New! Speech icon for event comments

Our latest update introduces a small speech bubble icon on the event title to indicate event comments. It will only appear on events where there are comments, making it easy to see at a glance where discussions are happening on your calendar.

Updates for Teamup mobile apps

Teamup’s latest update for our iOS app includes a new user menu on the right sidebar. This user menu holds all user functionality, keeps the calendar functions in the left sidebar, and makes the app easier and more intuitive to use. The latest update also includes support for duplicating events. The latest updates also include various form and layout improvements to make the user experience better and more streamlined.
