Announcing Team Calendars in Confluence Data Center

Hi Community!

We're thrilled to share that Team Calendars for Confluence is now a built-in feature for Confluence Data Center releases 7.11 and beyondA long time favorite, Team Calendars helps teams share their schedules so they can stay organized, communicate availability, and track projects easily.

What's built into the feature:

With Team Calendars for Confluence Data Center, you have the ability to create calendars to track events that affect your team, such as release dates, project milestones, or holidays. My Calendars gives you a personalized view of all the calendars you've subscribed to. Alternatively, you can embed a calendar on a Confluence page to make crucial dates more visible. Custom event types and reminders allow you to customize each calendar to your exact needs. 

In bundling this app with Confluence Data Center, we've also kept privacy in mind. Because calendars are connected to spaces, only people who can view a space can view the calendar associated with it, meaning you can choose to restrict your calendar even further, and define exactly who can view and edit events. 

As well as adding your own calendar events, you can populate your calendars automatically, with data from:

  • Jira: See your team's sprint dates, release dates, and issue due dates all in one view.
  • Opsgenie and PagerDuty: Publish schedules and on-call rotations where everyone can see them.
  • Outlook, Google, iCloud, and Teamup: Subscribe to your organisation's existing calendars, so everyone is on the same page.

Where Team Calendars really comes into its own is the ability to synchronize with other calendar apps, such as your Android or iPhone calendar, or your favorite desktop calendar client. If your app supports CalDav, you can even create and edit events from your favorite app. 

We've also been hard at work resolving over 50 of the highest impact bugs to make sure the feature is as performant, reliable, and stable as possible for Data Center customers, including but not limited to:

  • Issues that can result in events not reflecting/updating with the correct details
  • Actions that have unexpected results
  • Issues that affect Team Calendars when used at scale.

See the full list of bug fixes and improvements here.

Since Data Center features are designed for scale and stability, Team Calendars is a great fit for customers managing complex projects. Confluence Data Center also includes features like analytics, advanced permissions, read-only mode, and more. There are also many new features coming to Data Center soon, including instance cleanup, data pipeline, and support for multiple IdPs. Check out the Confluence Data Center roadmap to learn more.

What does this mean for existing Team Calendars for Confluence server customers?

All existing Team Calendars for Confluence server customers will continue to have access to the Team Calendars app as normal. Between February 2, 2021 PT and February 2, 2022 PT, we will continue to provide support (i.e. database, browser, Java) and bug fixes on server products. After February 2, 2022 PT, we will only provide security bug-fixes for critical vulnerabilities until the end of support.

On February 2, 2024 PT, your products will reach end of support. After that date, we will not release any further product updates. Regular security updates help protect your business from threats and vulnerabilities, so we strongly recommend moving to cloud or upgrading to Data Center before the end of support date.

Please check your email or the FAQs for how these changes will impact your team and subscription billing.

We know these changes come with additional considerations for our customers and appreciate your adaptability as we provide customers with an enhanced Team Calendars experience.
