August Update: Yearly planning, schedule visibility, RSS, and helpful tips

Teamup monthly updates August 2023

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!

3. Product updates and news

Configure default date range and resolution in Scheduler

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.

Default date range of 4 weeks with 1-day resolution. You can still adjust date range and resolution while using Scheduler view.


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.

4. New user stories

Color-Coded Schedule Visibility for Assembly Workers

Read the story: LEGG Windows & Doors

This pair of screens is displayed directly at the end of our assembly area of our factories, mostly for our assembly team to see the Days/Week calendar from Teamup and can see the current level of completed tasks on the ESP screen. Also, on Teamup we display small events with details that we place later in the days (after hours) for the delivery guys to see what jobs they have to load. This keeps the day’s events neater.

A Customized Shipping Calendar to Track Key Order Details

Read the story: Snorkel Hot Tubs

Custom fields help track key order details on this shipping calendar

We need something to replace our Excel-based shipping calendar. We use it to post orders on the dates they are supposed to be shipped out. They are color-coded based on status: to be shipped, urgent, shipped, etc. …After a little tinkering we got a calendar (and sub-calendars) set up and it is working very well for us. We use it to schedule shipping of our hot tubs, payment status for each, and other details.
