Managing team availability with Team Calendar

Hi there,

we ve a bit tricky question:

Many team leads want to move over to Team Calendar to manage the availability of their teams. One thing which is blocking some of them is to get an "availability overview", as example to ensure that during christmas time at least two people are not on vacation in order to ensure basic support.

At the moment this is done via an Excelsheet, but this is not really smart. Is there an option to check/highlight if more than x people have entered an all-day leave entry in one calendar? Any other ideas how to manage this question? Plugin available?

For sure we could enter special dates for being available e.g., but this is not what we re looking for.

Hope someone has an idea how to manage...

Best regards,
Hans-Hermann

We've gotten around this issue by creating individual calendars for each team member, then combine them using the Calendar Macro on a team calendar page. The manager watches the page and is notified as each person adds their events.
