Built for Your Specific Needs
After lots of listening and watching how you use Confluence, Atlassian noticed a trend. Your work revolves around people, projects and content. You need to:
- Quickly track and report on your project releases
- Understand how the availability of your team members can impact those projects
- Communicate the status of your projects and team’s availability to your stakeholders
- Plan events and dive deeper into Confluence content related to them
You also told us that current solutions make it difficult to share calendars, are not project-oriented, and are not tightly integrated with your content.
After a lot of listening and learning, Atlassian was stoked to announce the availability of Team Calendars for Confluence - where people, projects, and content meet.
Choose from Three Calendar Types
People Calendars to schedule team leave, Jira Calendars to track projects, and Event Calendars to plan just about anything.
1. Schedule Team Leave with People Calendars
Atlassian’s made it easier for you to plan events around people. People Calendars help you schedule team leave and travel planning, create your support and IT on-call team rosters, and and most importantly, help you plan who stocks the team beer fridge. With People Calendars you can:
- Link events to people - displaying their profile picture against the event
- Link events to content - link to your leave, travel or roster plans to the actual event
- Create recurring events - quickly create rosters and repeating events
Creating rosters, scheduling team leave, and planning travel just go a whole lot easier since you always know the whereabouts of your teammates.
2. Track Projects with Jira Calendars
Communicating the release plans for your projects is quick and easy with Jira Calendars. Pull project version and issue due dates into Confluence where everyone can see them – keeping your project on track. View them alongside your People Calendars to see how your team’s availability will impact your release schedule.
3. Plan Anything with Event Calendars
Event Calendars are perfect for sharing company milestones, team events, training sessions, public holidays, or any other type of event. Put them on a calendar that everyone can see and subscribe to. While this may seem like ordinary functionality, this calendar is anything but, as you can link your events to the wiki pages capturing all the finer details about those events. Finally, a calendar that’s tightly integrated with your content.
