How do I add an event for another person to a calendar?

I'm the project manager and would like to be able to add events to a team calendar to indicate when someone is working at home or on vacation? I can't add a person other than myself and I know that they have access to Confluence?

I am using the OnDemand version in 30-day trial mode. I made sure that I signed up for Team Calendars when I setup my trial.

Hi Jon,

If you're using a 'People Calendar' and when you attempt to fill out the 'Who' field the autocomplete doesn't work then you may be running into this issue:

https://studio.atlassian.com/browse/JST-5774

Try out the workaround mentioned in that ticket:

"A potential workaround is to go to:

https://subdomain.atlassian.net/wiki/display/~username 

Replace subdomain with your own subdomain, and username with the username of the user you want to appear. This should add the user to the people directory, and allow Confluence to find the user when attempting to share pages etc."

After you try that workaround try adding that name into the "Who" field. :)

Cheers,

Matt
