New in Teamup Android app: Creating repeating events

Good news for users of our Android app: The latest update, version 1.3.0, allows you to create repeating events right in the app. No more need to go back to the Web version to create or edit repeating events.

You can now also create repeating events in the iOS app!

How to create a repeating event

Go to the start date/time and tap the + sign as usual to add a new event.  The event editor opens up.  Now tap the repeating field where the default shows “Do not repeat”:

Enjoy!

 

 

 

Exciting beta feature: Event Fields Now Customizable

Groups use calendars for purposes that are different from those that personal calendars are made for. Teamup has been built for groups from the very beginning.  We have taken it one step further: Introducing customizable event fields.

This important new feature provides more flexibility for managers to make the calendar work best for their group needs: Now it is possible to rename the typical calendar fields like Who and Where, or create your own fields to organize and share information that is specific to your events. Click the image below to see an example in full size demonstrating the difference between the default and the customized event fields.

Customizable event fields

Like event signup and event comments, the feature of customizing event fields is currently on beta and is not yet supported in the Teamup iOS and Android apps, although it is accessible using mobile browsers.

Beta Feature: Add Comments to Events

Many users have shared with us how they use Teamup, what works well and what they wish to have and why. The ability to add comments to events was one of the frequently requested features. We’re happy to share that we have released this feature on the Web version for beta testing and it is available to all free and paid users.

Please note the new feature is not yet supported on the iOS and Android apps at this time. It will be. Thanks for your patience.

How to use the Comments feature

The new comments feature can be enabled by the event creator as an option in the event editor:

Use case examples

Possible uses of this new feature are diverse. Some examples:

  • Before or after a conference call, participants may post comments for discussion, even if some of them only have read-only access to the respective sub-calendar, or even no access to the calendar but the event page only.
  • Field crews with read-only access to jobs scheduled for them may add notes to the jobs directly therefore simplify conventional reporting processes.
  • For organizations that work with many freelancers, the comments feature may bring a great addition to their work flow.

We use Teamup to schedule crew events. So the notes section is filled with information about the event. We love the comment section because it’s a different area that allows us to note communications and correspondences with our freelancers. Even though we share this Calendar, we know that the comments are just for those who have the correct permissions and that’s important to us.   – Sean George, AVS
