2. Insight: Improve efficiency with better information flow
Healthy information flow is vital for business success. To make your team effective, you need to eradicate information bottlenecks and streamline manual processes. That might mean setting up a job information system so crew members can access details and capture on-site service documentation. Or maybe you need to merge the operational silos so teams can collaborate and make informed decisions. Start by taking a step back, reviewing key areas, and asking questions to identify the best ways to improve operations with better information flow in your business.
3. User story: NU Research Team
Research teams often need to coordinate shared lab space and specialized equipment. When they’re running clinical studies, they also need to schedule visits and follow-ups for study participants. Of course, they still need to manage team availability and keep up with other tasks. Learn how this busy research team uses Teamup to keep their scheduling coordinated.

4. January’s power tips from the Teamup Ticker
An example: you may need to share a pick up location and a drop off location for a scheduled delivery. Here’s how you could handle this scenario.
Create a custom choice field and add each user name as an option for a pre-populated user field.
Upload files, documents, images, and add links to Teamup events as an easy, secure way to share materials; for example, upload homework assignments and link resources to share with students and parents.
If you are on the Teamup app, here’s how to open the calendar in a web browser rather than the app.
5. Product updates and news
Teamup app updates: Android version 1.18.0 and iOS version 2.16.5
New app releases bring improvements to the login flow and dashboard, security, and description text formatting.
Event field names, new columns in Table view
You can now create longer event field names (up to 60 characters). Longer event field names are helpful for providing prompts or instructions for your calendar users. We also added new columns in Table view to show start and end day names.
6. Inspiration: Time blocking
Time blocking is a simple but powerful way to plan your days. It helps you to turn each day from a puzzling mix of scheduled events and unscheduled tasks to a simple, doable plan. Whether you prefer planning on paper or using a digital tool, you can start time blocking today with Teamup.
