How to Use Fewer Keystrokes When Entering Calendar Data

Entering calendar data into Teamup is similar to most other calendars. Here are a few tips on choosing the dates or hours of your events before opening the editor window so you don’t have to manually choose them within the editor. Plus how to enter data faster. The result is fewer keystrokes which means great efficiency.

Tip 1: For All-day or multi-day events, use the Month or Multi-week view, click and drag over the relevant dates, and release the mouse to open the editor:

Drag to create a Multi day event

Tip 2: For time-specific events, use the Day or Week view, click and drag over the relevant times, then release the mouse to open the editor.

Create hourly event

Tip 3: To create shorter time slots, click and drag in the calendar just a little, until your desired time slot is highlighted. Change the time resolution on your calendar for even finer control. You can further shorten or lengthen event times to the minute in the Add Event window:

Set event times to the minute

Tip 4: Choose the date of your event in the mini calendar in the top left before using one of the tips above to jump to that date. Note that you can scroll with your mouse through the mini calendar.
If using the List or Agenda views, click on the event date in the mini calendar first before clicking ‘Add event’ – the start date will be set accordingly.

Use mini calendar

Tip 5: When in the event editor, pressing the Enter key while in any of the main fields will save your event and close the window. Pressing the Enter key while in the details (More) section of an event creates a new line. Press escape to exit the event editor. Use the tab key to move between event fields

Tip 6: When changing the start time of an event within the event editor, the end time changes automatically, keeping the duration of the event the same. This is especially helpful if moving events to earlier or later start times.
To easily change the duration of an event, click and drag on its bottom border:
Change event duration
