How to Duplicate a Calendar

When a Teamup Calendar works well for one team or project, a similar setup can work well for another team or project. Here’s how to duplicate an entire Teamup master calendar.

The calendar duplication feature allows you to “copy” the basic structure of an entire Teamup Calendar: the sub-calendar structure and basic configuration. Then you can adapt the duplicated calendar for your own use. Duplicating a calendar that’s already set up makes getting started with Teamup event faster and easier.

A calendar administrator can create a shareable Template calendar link. This special template link can be used to duplicate the source calendar.

The Template link must fulfill the following conditions:

  4. Scroll down to the Calendars Shared section and ensure that the Read-only permission is applied to All calendars:

  7. Copy the Template link to use it or share it with others.

You must be logged into your Teamup user account to use a Template calendar link. If you’re not logged in when you paste the Template link into a browser, you’ll be prompted to do so.

The duplicated calendar(s) will be automatically added to your user dashboard.

  1. Append /copy to the Template link then paste into a new browser tab or window.
  2. The original calendar will be copied with the original calendar title and with all sub-calendars and all basic configuration.

If you want to control how the Template link duplicates the original calendar, you can use link parameters.

The following URL parameters are supported:

  • title=My Title
  • copySubcalendars=0 to exclude sub-calendars
  • copyConfiguration=0 to exclude configuration

    • Optionally, append the needed URL parameters.
      • To append a parameter, add ? then the parameter.
      • To use multiple parameters, append the needed parameters with & between each one. For example: ?title=My Title&copySubcalendars=0 
  2. Paste the Template link with the desired parameters into a new browser tab.
