Beta feature: The new table view
You probably already know that Teamup is not an ordinary calendar. It does much more than creating meeting appointments. The new Table View feature is our 10th calendar view that is displayed in a spreadsheet-like format for calendar events. This view supports a custom field with the type ‘Number’. You can assign numerical values to the field in your events and the values are summed up in the bottom of the column. Read more here.
Table View is available with the Premium subscription plan.
Spelling check in event editor
Teamup now supports spelling suggestions in the event description field. Misspelled words are shown with a red underline. Spelling suggestions are then available with the right context menu.
Week number explained
Have you ever noticed the week numbers to the left of the calendar view? Week numbers are commonly used in industries like logistics and manufacturing for the scheduling of work and deliveries. It’s a popular feature with many users who work in those areas.
It is important to keep in mind that there are two schemes for counting week numbers. To avoid confusion that may cause serious issues, we have added detailed information about the Week View and how to use it. Read more here.

Is your team relying on Slack for instant messaging? To minimize switching between your Slack channels and your Teamup calendar, we’ve built-in a nice feature in the Teamup-Slack integration via Zapier. You can send reminders of upcoming events on your Teamup calendar directly to a Slack channel. Once active, this integration automatically posts messages to Slack on the schedule you set up.

"I implemented the Teamup Calendar at our golf club a few years ago… The advantages are so obvious, with the printed diary out of date almost as soon as it is printed. Not to mention the cost saving compared to printing." Thank you Gary! #Golf #membership #community #Calendar pic.twitter.com/DAS3uOAc7F
