How to avoid the drudgery of conflicted copies

No more conflicted copies

Is there anything more soul destroying than getting a ‘conflicted copy’ warning on Dropbox? Or how about realizing someone has written right over the detailed changes you made to a shared Google Sheet? Regardless of where your shared calendar resides, not knowing if you have the most recent data in front of you is frustrating.

Teamup makes it easy to secure your calendar information. It doesn’t matter how big your team is or where they’re located. You can share your calendars, divvy up workloads and be confident the data in your calendar is exactly what it should be.

Here are four ways Teamup overcomes the problem of corrupted calendars.

    1. Use multiple access permissions
    2. Display edit history on each event
    3. Create an audit trail
    4. Share a single event as a Web page

Multiple access permissions

9 levels of permission suit everyone’s needs while keeping them productive. Too often the administrator gets saddled with all the responsibility of updating a calendar or has to make the decision to give all their special powers away on blind faith. Teamup has developed different access permissions to assure you can delegate and empower people to work with the proper authority. Access control is centrally managed by the calendar administrator, who can assign different levels of Modify, Read and Add access permissions to provide a better, more nuanced user experience. What if you want someone to be able to edit only the events he or she created but not any events cretaed by others? Yes, you can do that too!

Here’s the best part: you can give these permissions to both users and people with a shareable link. You can also include the entire calendar or select the sub-calendars you want to share.

Display edit history on each event

Every event displays an edit history. If someone changes an event, Teamup keeps track of who made the change and when it happened. This level of transparency takes away any concern about lost data, which can happen if users with full Modify permission write over each other’s changes. At the bottom of each event is a notification showing who created the event and who changed it last.

Create an audit trail

You can set up your own audit trail for changes. If you want to track every change made to a specific event, especially if it contains sensitive information or has a lot of users, you can subscribe to email notifications. This feature allows you to collect every change to an event on a calendar. If you are using Slack, you can post these change notifications instantly to a channel of your choise.

Share a single event as a Web page

Every event on the calendar is sharable as an independent page. When collaborating with a third party on a specific event, you can enable the commenting option and share a single calendar event as a web page. It’s even possible for them to upload images and documents if the calendar is on a Premium plan. The beauty is in the simplicity: No login is required.
