In this August monthly update, take a look at how Teamup helps with better yearly planning. Learn how to combine multiple calendars and get on top of back-to-school scheduling. And get inspired by two new user stories. We’ll show you how to make better use of Scheduler view, get Teamup news through RSS, and share free printable calendars. Scroll on down for all this and more in Teamup’s August 2023 monthly update.
1. Highlight: Better yearly planning with Teamup
Would it be easier for you to plan for the year ahead if you can see what you already have on your calendar in the months to come? If the answer if yes, read on.
Typical calendars, like Google Cal, don’t give you the ability to see what’s on your calendar for the entire year at a glance. Google’s year view (see live if you’re logged in Google) is simply a calendar grid without signs of events and plans already scheduled for the year. To view the events and schedules you need to consider, you have to flip between weeks or months.
If you’re tired of making trade-offs, it’s time to try Teamup. See an entire year on one page, get clear visual cues about the events spread over the year, and combine multiple calendars so you can see everything!
2. This month’s power tips from the Teamup Ticker
Quit juggling multiple calendars and end schedule conflicts by bringing everything together.
Create a simple but effect system and let employee input their own hours.

Switch between a long-range view of calendar data and a spreadsheet-like format to get better insights from your calendar data.
3. Product updates and news
We recently updated the configuration options for our enhanced Scheduler view. Now you can go to Settings > Calendar views and set a default range of days, weeks, or months, and a corresponding default resolution. These defaults will ensure that Scheduler opens in the most useful settings for the way you work, whether that’s viewing a single day in 30-minute increments or looking 4 weeks ahead with 1-day resolution.
The Teamup Ticker is more of a news stream than a typical calendar. It is updated daily with product news and practical tips for using Teamup to solve real world problems. It is all about making the most out of Teamup. We simply use the calendar timeline to organize news and tips as we release product improvements and share creative solutions we’ve learned in working with our customers every day.
Since RSS is one of the most common ways for reading news digitally, we’ve made our Ticker calendar available via RSS feeds.
