Outlook Calendars for Confluence – what your team needs

Use calendars in Confluence to synchronize your team. Manage your tasks, plan projects, meetings, and get through your everyday work faster.

Outlook Calendars for Confluence – tweaks for your team calendars

Managing various projects, travel plans, leave requests and keeping everyone on the same page can be quite an undertaking. Better align your people, projects, and events: Create a calendar in Confluence and fill it with already existing Outlook data. Without any duplicate calendar management.

Also, you can give everyone a window into Jira: By adding Jira issues and project releases, you can track the deliverables for your projects, collaborate, and work on them. Everything in one place. With our latest release, we added a few tweaks to our calendar integration to improve your team planning. Enjoy the look and feel of the all new Outlook Calendars for Confluence in this short demo video.

Simple permission management

Sometimes it’s hard for teammates to discover and subscribe to common calendars. Complex calendar permissions can be a struggle. And yes, it’s even more complicated for new teammates or external users. With our latest update, sharing calendars in Confluence becomes a lot easier. In our Confluence calendar integration you can manage calendar permissions easily yourself. Choose who can see or edit the corresponding calendars. Therefore, you can track common schedules in Confluence in one place. And yes, this works for Jira and Outlook permissions, as well.

Comfortably choose between different templates and view options

Build the calendar you need and keep your team aligned with different calendar templates. The templates provide default settings and will enhance your use case to make calendar editing even more comfortable.

Comfortably choose between different templates and view options.

In your calendar integration you’ll be able to choose a matching layout option. Sometimes you need to look at things from afar and get a broader overview, or you zoom in and focus on a single day or week. Choose between list, calendar, and timeline view, and make it super simple to track your team’s schedule as close-up as you like.

Insert a current user’s Outlook calendar

In some use cases it might be valuable to show the current user’s calendar, depending on who is currently viewing the Confluence page. It works almost like a mirror: With this feature, the calendar automatically displays the data of the team member who is viewing the Confluence page or space. With all your scheduling in one place, you give your teammates the opportunity to check their calendar in relation to the provided calendar dates.
