Great news for those of you who use iPhone and iPad: A new version of the Teamup app for iPhone and iPad is now available on the App Store for download!
Not available yet in this release are the grid views including day/week/month views. We do know that many of you have asked for these views and we are working on them. For now, if you really need to view or edit the calendar in a grid view, consider opening the calendar in the web browser on your device – this is now easier with the new version than before:
Step 1: Open the sidebar
Step 2: Click the dashboard icon
Step 3: Click the three dots next to the link that you want to see in one of the grid views.
Step 4: Select Open Link. Now your calendar opens in your default browser, e.g. Safari. For iPhone users, it is recommended to turn your phone to the landscape mode to minimize the limit of the current browser version being not fully responsive on mobile devices.
This approach could also help with those who need to create recurring events on the go as currently the apps are limited to edit existing recurring events only. Thanks for your patience!
Last week we introduced the new look for events assigned to multiple calendars. We’re thrilled to receive feedback from countless enthusiastic users who love the new look.
Love the new look for multiple calendars having the same event. Saves space on my calendar! We are loving the calendar for our organization. It is saving us tons of emails and bringing the whole organization on the same page. Don’t know how we survived without it. Thank you!

While the majority have been very pleased with the change, a surprising number of users raised issues with the new display and many went to great details explaining why the previous display with multiple single colored event entries worked better for their use cases.
We listened to all feedback carefully and agreed that there are many advantages of the previous look. After all, there are a million ways to use Teamup! We quickly decided to bring back the previous look and make it configurable. Our engineers worked hard and delivered at speed once more: A new version of Teamup has been released. Now the calendar administrator can choose the preferred look in Settings > General Settings: Continue reading New Configuration Option for Display of Events Assigned to Multiple Calendars
Have you been using Teamup’s unique feature of assigning one event to multiple calendars? If so, you may have noticed that these events are now displayed in stripes with the colors of the assigned calendars.
The new way of visualization offers some practical benefits, such as

Have you seen the new Agenda view? If not yet, simply click on Agenda in the top right of your calendar. If the option is not there (to be enabled by your calendar administrator), simply append ?view=a to your calendar link in your browser’s address bar.
If you embed your Teamup Calendar into a Website or Facebook page, try to append ?view=a to the link you use for embedding and you will be pleased to see how much more pleasant it looks now.
The biggest change is the event time is now shown just below the date instead of to the right of it, making better use of the available space.
Most of the time you may not need to change the date range or the details option. You can click a small double arrow in the top right to hide away date control elements. This could make the view even less cluttered especially when the calendar is embedded into websites. To open the date control bar again, click the little tab to open the control area again.
Exciting news for all Teamup users: We have re-built the event editor with a new technology and a completely new interface! Just click on any event on your calendar to see the new editor or viewer for yourself!
The new event editor and event viewer are responsive and vertically expandable, making viewing and editing events much better experience on both computers and mobile devices.
On the new event editor, simply click any of the input fields and start typing or selecting. Continue reading New Event Editor and Viewer!

While our developers are gearing up for some major improvements on the iOS app, we’ve made a small update (version 1.3.0) to the App Store. In addition to various bug fixes, the new version now supports linking event location to Google Maps, and image upload directly from your device’s camera or albums.
For many users it is a frequent need to be able to open an event location in a map right from the calendar app. This is possible now. Simply tapping the address in your event’s Where field to see it in Google Maps. This is especially helpful for groups with staff travelling to client sites or crew driving to where the jobs are to be performed.
If your calendar has an active Premium subscription, you will see an upload arrow in the upper right corner when you open the event editor. You can choose files from albums or take a picture with your camera.
Please update to the latest version (1.3.0) if you haven’t done so.
