How to Share the Same Event Calendar in Multiple Places

You can share your entire Teamup calendar, or you can share individual events as stand-alone web pages. This article discusses how you can embed your entire calendar or share individual event pages.

Limited access permission for security

When sharing your calendar online, be aware of calendar security and set the access permissions to keep your calendar data safe.

In most cases, it’s best to use read-only permission when sharing your calendar via shareable link.

With a read-only link, viewers can see the calendar and all event details, but cannot make any changes. In some situations, such as sharing a calendar in a closed Facebook group, you may wish to allow more freedom to interact with the calendar because you know and trust the viewers, but this won’t be the typical scenario.

Automatically updated calendar and events

When you share your calendar, viewers will automatically see the most updated version of any single event and of the entire calendar.

When you make changes or add new events to the calendar, these changes will automatically be reflected on every shared version of the calendar. This means that everyone has access to the update event information, or newly added events, without any further work.

Calendar access for registered users

If you wish to share your entire calendar with team members, club members, employees, or other who need to frequently work with the calendar, you can grant calendar access to Teamup registered users. This allows you to put users into groups, set permissions for entire groups, and maintain a more secure calendar. 

This is generally the better choice for ongoing calendar access for your team, employees, volunteers, or other organizational scenario. Account-based access provides an additional level of security and administrator control.

Embedding a Teamup calendar

To share your entire calendar on a website or group page, you can embed the calendar.

It is easy to embed the calendar inside an existing web page using the Teamup embed wizard. Customize the look of the embedded calendar to match your brand and/or web site, or to use a preferred page URL.

The embed wizard allows you to customize the look and feel of the calendar without having to manually change the code. Use the menu options to control how the calendar looks, specify the initial view and starting date, and other options.

Here’s the same calendar embedded into this page customized with a different set of link parameters:

If you wish to embed the calendar without using our embed wizard, you can use iFrame code and add additional parameters as desired to control how the calendar looks.

Using the Teamup WordPress plugin

The Teamup plugin for WordPress makes it easy to insert a Teamup Calendar into a WordPress site.

To use it, go here and download the plugin zip file. Then upload it to your WordPress site and activate it. You will need to use the Classic editor plugin or the Classic editor block in order to use the Teamup plugin.

Share event pages

If you wish to share only individual events, rather than an entire event calendar, you can.

Unlike other calendars, Teamup Calendar allows single event to be displayed and shared as a web page. Event pages can be shared independently or embedded into any website, as you would do with any other page.
