How to Filter Calendar Events

Use filters to view only events that match certain criteria. Teamup supports filtering by keywords, by sub-calendars, and by custom event fields.

This article discusses how to use filters in a browser. To learn how to use filters on the Teamup mobile apps, see here for iOS and here for Android.

Filter by keywords


  • Filtering by keywords shows events that match the keyword(s) in any of the fields of an event.
  • When multiple keywords are entered, the OR logic is applied. This means that if you enter two keywords, the filter will show events that match either one of the keywords or both of them. AND logic can be forced by using the plus operator. See below.
  • Filtering by keywords supports three search operators:
Operator How to use it
+ A plus sign in front of a keyword makes it a required word.
Example: +team +kickoff +London
Only returns events that include all three keywords. Without the plus sign, events that contain at least one of the keywords would be returned.
A dash in front of a keyword excludes events that contain that keyword. This is useful if a word you are looking for is used in different contexts.
Example: jaguar -car
Only returns events that contain the word jaguar but not the word car.

Multiple words can be grouped with quotes. The filter will return events with the quoted words in the exact same order.
Example: “Team Meeting”
Only returns events that contain the exact phrase “Team Meeting”. Without the quotes, the fitler would return any event that contains either Team or Meeting or both.

Filter by sub-calendar

In the example shown below, you may like to see only Mike’s schedule: to do so, simply choose Mike from the drop-down arrow in the sub-calendar filter.

Filtering by sub-calendars

Filter by custom event fields

If you have added custom event fields of type Single Choice or Multiple Choice, additional filter inputs will be available.

Filter by custom event field choices
  • You can filter by one or multiple choice field options. For example, you could filter events by both “Ready to go” and “In Progress” choices shown in the example.
  • You can also filter by events that don’t have a value assigned for a particular choice field. In this case, select the value “Empty”.
  • To filter by custom event fields, use the drop-down menu or type text into the filter and select the option you want to use.

Use filters in combination

  • You can use a combination of filters, as needed, to see precisely the events that are relevant. 

Share or bookmark filtered calendar views

  • You can share a calendar view with filtered events: click on the Share link, which is underneath the filters. This will open up your calendar in a new tab or window with the filters applied.
  • You can bookmark that calendar link, or share it with others to see the filter applied. Be sure that the link you use for filtering has the appropriate access permission for the people you want to share the filtered results with.

Filtering vs. searching for events

Filtering is different than searching for events:

  • Filtering applies only to the events currently on your screen.
  • Searching applies to a date range that you select.
