Is there a way to view calendars based on a custom grouping of people? Edited

We are using team calendars for several departments here. Now we have team consisting of people coming from different departments, so their holiday entries reside in different TeamCalendars.

I would like to configure teams and view their holidays in one view.

Every manager wants his own view on the same data. project managers wants the calendars of his project team, department manager want the data of his department etc.

I don't want to create a separate Calendar for every user so the different managers can create their own view overlayed by selecting their "team" members.

 

Sounds like the perfect feature for an add-on calling itself "Team' calendar because teams evolve.

Hi Kevin,

It's a little unclear exactly what feature you need, but here's what I am understanding you're asking.

One, from your title, it seems like you want to be able to add a group of users to an event instead of a single user. Is this correct?

Each calendar created can be for any number of people, so it's not assigned to a specific user. The only thing is that the user who creates it will always be the administrator. You can invite any number of people to the calendar to provide their holiday time, and you can include several individual users to one event.

Not sure if I explained it correctly, but I want the end user to have the flexibility to combine their own teams, not 1 fixed calendar per team.

We need this because users can be in multiple team at the same time and we don't want them to have to enter their events in each and every team-calendar they are part of.

For the flexibility I need, the only solution seems to be setting up one calendar per user and enabling/disabling them to have an overview of each team

So I don't want to create events for a group of people.

 

Thanks for your answer though. I hope you see my point now

I understand now, and I think I found the exact thing you're looking for in a feature request:

People are resources: every users should have a personal calendar - team calendars should be about an aggregated view of personal calendars

If you're interested in this, can you vote on the case and comment there with your usage case?

Alright. Thanks Shannon. That's indeed what I was lokking for.

Sadly I'll have to be patient for a couple af years untill this might be implemented. I added my vote nevertheless

Kevin,

At this time we're just gathering interest in this feature; you can read more about it on our Implementation of New Features Policy.

I can verify, however, the more votes and comments a feature gets, the more likely it is to be implemented.

Take care, and kind regards,

Shannon
