Dashboard for calendar links

Many Teamup users have more than one Teamup Calendar; for example, you may have one calendar that you created and manage for your family, and another calendar that you use for work, with non-administrator access as a team member. In this case, you can connect both calendars to your Teamup App via the app’s Dashboard:

  • To access the Dashboard: Open the sidebar. Tap either the Dashboard icon in the top right or the text link below the sub-calendars list, as shown below.
  • On the Dashboard, tap the + sign to connect another calendar.
  • Important to keep in mind: The Android app’s Dashboard as shown above is currently NOT connected to the Dashboard accessible through a user account


Connection and update status

  • You can view your connectivity at the bottom of the sidebar in the connectivity tracker.

 

  • You can access your Teamup Calendar with the Android app while offline.  You will see the calendar data that was synced the last time you were online.
  • This can be helpful if you need to access your calendar but are not connected to the Internet temporarily.
  • Any changes made to the calendar during the time the calendar is not connected will be saved locally and synced to the server once the connection is back.


Widget

The widget is a miniature version of your Teamup Calendar that lives on your phone’s home screen. Instead of tapping to open the Teamup app, you simply swipe to see the widget. From the widget, you can tap to open any event in the Teamup mobile app.

There are two ways to add a widget to your phone:

  • Option 1:  Long press the Teamup app icon on your home screen. A menu will appear. Tap the Widgets option.
  • Option 2: Long press anywhere on the screen to show the options for Wallpapers, Widgets, and Home Settings. Select Widgets and scroll through the available widgets until you find the Teamup widget. Touch and hold to select the widget, then drag it to where you want to place it on your screen.
  • Once you place the widget on your phone’s screen, you’ll be prompted to select the calendar and the sub-calendars you want to display on the widget.
  • To adjust the size of the widget, long press it until a white border with handles appears around the widget. Then drag the handles to adjust the size.
  • To change which calendar appears in the widget, just tap the Edit icon in the top bar of the widget.
