Hey everybody! Today we added a new feature to Confluence Cloud Premium – Team Calendars. Once upon a time, Team Calendars was a popular add-on in the Atlassian Marketplace. We made it a Premium feature to provide the best experience to customers managing content at scale and to help their teams stay efficient.
Team Calendars lets teams add calendars to their spaces so they can share schedules, communicate availability, and track projects in Jira Software easily. Team Calendars also has an enhanced look and feel and will soon have CalDAV server support for third-party app integration, so teams can share and update popular third-party apps like Microsoft Outlook, Apple Calendar for iOS and Mac OS, Google Calendar, and more.
Here’s an example of the cross-team visibility Team Calendars provides (with three calendars and different event types):
Holidays where team members can enter leave
Defender team events
Confluence team events, travel birthdays, and releases
When people create events in Team Calendars, they can use existing event types or create their own. Teams can even use JQL to add events by Jira issues!
Team Calendars also includes four views: month, week, list, and timeline which provides a Gannt chart view for easy roadmapping and project planning.
Team Calendars restrictions can also be configured by space admins so that particular team members may edit or view.
We’re looking forward to hearing how you use this feature and if it helps your teams stay efficient and in the know.
Release tracks is another new feature in Premium and there are many more coming soon including sandbox, external collaboration, and automation. Check out the Confluence Cloud Premium roadmap to learn more.
