When you add an item to your Teamup calendar, you save it to a particular date. But some items, such as unscheduled jobs, may not have a specified date or time. One of the ways to handle those items is to have a dedicated sub-calendar to capture all the unscheduled jobs.
Create a dedicated sub-calendar
You don’t want to clutter your scheduled job calendar with the unscheduled items. Create a new sub-calendar just for tasks and jobs that are to be scheduled.
Add all unscheduled jobs to this sub-calendar. Use any date you like when adding the unscheduled items, or specify a “parking lot” date (such as every Sunday, or the first or last day of the month).
View unscheduled jobs as sortable list
At anytime, you can toggle to display the Unscheduled sub-calendar only. Use table view to see all the unscheduled jobs in a sortable list. You can sort the unscheduled jobs by any column in table view.
You can hide the columns that are unnecessary to keep your view clean and simple:
Schedule the unscheduled jobs
When you’re ready to move the unscheduled job to a date, there are several easy ways to do so.
In a grid view (such as Week, Month, or Year), drag and drop the job to the correct date, then click to open the event editor and change to the appropriate sub-calendar.
Or, double click to open the job and edit the date in the event editor:
- In the Scheduler view and the Timeline view, drag-and-drop to move any event from the Unscheduled sub-calendar to another sub-calendar. If you do make use of this method, be sure to check the date and time of the moved event and adjust if needed.
