Mobile Apps

The Teamup Android and iOS apps have been undergoing many small improvements and bug fixes in the recent weeks, including support for hyperlinks in text fields. With the latest Android app, Android users now can benefit from the folder structure for sub-calendars.

The maximum length of sub-calendar names

In the English version of Teamup, the maximum length for sub-calendar names has always been 100 characters. But that was not the case for some translated character sets which caused some issues for sub-calendars with long names. You may wonder why anyone would ever need 100 characters for sub-calendar names. Well, Teamup is not an ordinary calendar and there are indeed creative uses of the names, like in this case of managing a changing staff schedule where the customer locations and phone #s are part of the sub-calendar names!

The maximum length of sub-calendar names is now 100 characters for all character sets.

Quick Tips

  • How to Merge Events from two or More Sub-calendars into One
    If you need to keep the number of your sub-calendars low, or simply wish to restructure your sub-calendars, you can merge the events from two sub-calendars by exporting the events from the sub-calendars to be eliminated and importing them into the calendar to remain.
  • How to Change the Order of Event Fields
    Teamup’s event fields are similar to columns on Excel that represent structured categories of information. If there are many fields, it may be helpful to change the order of the event fields and move the most important ones to the top (or to the left in the Table view).
  • 3 Ways to Copy Events with Context Menu, Ctrl-Drag & Drop, and Duplicate
    Use ctrl-drag and drop to quickly copy an event to another sub-calendar in the Scheduler view or Timeline view. One of the options in the right-click context menu of an event is Duplicate, allowing you to edit a copied new event in the event editor and select the sub-calendar(s) to assign to before saving it as a new event.

How Meditation Chapel overcomes the time zone challenge for a global community of 6000+ meditators

Roger Sessions of Meditation Chapel explains how the virtual chapel allows meditation groups from all over the world to meet and meditate 24 hours a day. An embedded Teamup Calendar on the Meditation Chapel website takes care of the time conversion automatically and allows everyone to see available meditation groups in their own time zone at any time of the day. Teamup is a critical part of the technology infrastructure, next to Zoom, that eliminates the biggest challenge of coordinating groups across different time zones in over 30 countries.
