1. Highlight: Duplicate a calendar

When a Teamup Calendar works well for one team or project, a similar setup often works well for another team or project. What if you could copy a calendar that works well? Now you can!

The new duplication feature makes it super easy to copy the sub-calendar structure and/or basic configuration of any Teamup master calendar. The copy is created as a brand-new Teamup calendar. Then you can adapt and scale the duplicated calendar as needed.
