1. Highlight: using CSV calendar templates

Setting up the best calendar structure for your needs can be a lot to figure out and implement. To help with this process, we’ve created a new demo calendar that shows how to bulk import sub-calendars from a CSV template.

This demo calendar allows you to test how to quickly create sub-calendars from a template .csv file. Using this process can make setting up a new calendar (or reorganizing an existing calendar) much easier and faster!

4. New user stories


Color-coded teams for efficiency

Read the story: Frontline Housekeeping

We love the color coding feature, as it helps our Teams differentiate who they will be working alongside and which vehicle they are assigned to. We color code all our equipment as well, so that our teams are sure to grab all their supplies for the day.
– Joe Redington

This is a great example of consistent color-coding to make scheduling easier (and more fun). The assigned color gives a strong visual cue that carries across the whole workflow.

Coordinating live events and art exhibitions


Read the story: The Fruitmarket

It’s great, and simple to use! I particularly like the way you can put in longer term events, like exhibitions or courses, alongside shorter events, and the different calendar views really give a great overview of our activity.

– Iain Morrison, Partnerships Curator

A busy arts venue is comprised of multiple distinct spaces for live events, such as the library, the cafe, gallery and studios, and room for exhibitions. For this team of 16, Teamup is an easy-to-use solution for booking the spaces, managing events and exhibitions, and keeping everyone on track.

5. Inspiration: Good foundations for calendar admins

If Teamup is a critical part of your business, calendar security is a very important job. Poor or compromised security can create big issues: accidental changes to calendar events, scheduling errors, loss of important information, confidentiality breaches, and even deletion of an entire calendar.

As the calendar admin, keeping the calendar secure is your responsibility. Learn how to build secure foundations and set up smart routines to create and maintain security in your role.

And just btw …it’s the best thing we have ever implemented in our business!!!


7. This month’s printable calendars

Digital calendars provide lots of flexibility, and make real-time edits easy, but there’s something special about a paper calendar. It’s tangible. It’s easy to use, without needing wifi or devices. And having your calendar or agenda on paper can help focus attention.

Printing a blank calendar with Teamup is easy, and we’ve made it even easier with these current templates:
