Modern hectic life requires you to follow a busy schedule. There are numerous issues to be resolved, various meetings to attend, team planning to do, and, needless to say, the list goes on and on. It might be difficult, if not impossible, to keep a track of everything. Well, the answer to your problem might be simpler than you thought.
The Company Calendar for Jira could be one of the possible solutions to make your workdays go smooth and well organized.
1. Visualize and plan Jira based events in calendar view
First, create a calendar and define its permissions.
Then, start adding sources.
2. Create custom events based on your unique needs, meetings, vacations and leaves, business trips, etc.
Not all company events are based on Jira issues and that’s when the custom sources come handy.
3. Export calendar data outside your Jira via iCalendar format
This way, you can add your company events to Outlook, Google or other calendar apps. You can also share your company events with others by adding them to any website as an embedded calendar.
Check out our following FAQs below, and if you still have questions be sure to ask them in the comments.
I want particular Jira issue fields to be displayed on the event
Sure, we understand. That’s why the Jira issue fields are configurable for each source that is based on Jira dates. For instance, you can set the event display for issue key, priority, status, and assignee.
Can I highlight the events of high priority on my calendar?
Yes, you can define the conditional colors for the sources that are based on Jira dates. For example, you can highlight in red the events that are due by the end of the current week.
I don’t feel comfortable with the idea that people outside of my Jira see the event description when I share my company calendar with others. Can I hide the issue description?
Yes, you can set the event description to be hidden when creating a calendar export.
