Need to assign one event to multiple calendars? Now you can!

Have you been in a situation where:

  • a group of people need to go to the same meeting or work on the same task?
  • a tennis class needs to be assigned to a coach and a court?
  • a conference session belongs to both a content track and a room…?

… the list goes on and on — there are hundreds of reasons you may need to assign one event to different calenders. Well, we’ve made it easier for you.

Our new “one-to-many” ability lets you assign a single event to multiple calendars, which might include the calendar of a person, resource, object or venue, etc. The feature is available for free to all Teamup users and it can be enabled or disabled in the settings.

How to enable this feature

You can enable and disable support for multiple calendars per event by going to Settings -> General Settings and check or uncheck the Enabled checkbox.
