connecting events/people calendars

Dear All,

I am currentlt testing the Team Calendar plugin.

I succesfully created 2 event calendars: general and team specific.

I would like to post team specific events on their calendar and general events on general calendar. Also we required that general events should flow through to team specific calendars automatically.

All general events should be seen on team calendars.

Team events should be seen respective team calendar.

Is that possible? How can I do it?

Cheers,

Selcuk

You can do this by setting us pages with calendars using the calendar macro.

When you go to browse > calendars to see you calendars, think of these as your data sources.

Each team creates a page with a calendar macro in it, This is your team view on the calendar data sources.They add their own team calendar & the general one.

We do something similar. We have a central google ical feeds for UK/DE/US/NL/SG holidays. teams can then also include these on their team pages which hold a calendar.

Hi Matthew,

Thanks for point me to the correct direction. I managed to display various calendar in one .

Hi Sergio,

I am new for Confluence and my knowledge is very limited.

As far as I know there is an funtilonality that you can subcribe to another calendar: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/TEAMCAL/Subscribing+to+Other+Calendars+From+Confluence

and also you can export (share) your team calendar:

And check this as well:

I believe we are trying to extend and expand the funtionalities of Confluence beyond its intentions, especially information structure. If you haven't seen confluence concept diagram I try upload the image. I hope it'll give you an idea how Confluence has designed and reveal its limitations.

Great issue! I d like to extend the scope of the question. In case a customer also uses Salesforce, that has its own calendar:

  • what are the best practices in integrating information from Team Calendar, Google Calendar and Salesforce;
  • what ideas of Confluence pages have you guys designed to best segment the information that s relevant to each person and each team?

So the question goes beyond the technical aspect, rather gets into information architecture considerations.

Anyone who d like to share experiences and think together?
