Team calendar

TAG:

Team calendar is a simple and visual way for a team to share their planned events for a given period.  Teams typically use it to share vacation plans, important events and deadlines.

Step by Step

  1. Decide the calendar period
  2. Decide what kind of events the team should add to the calendar (e.g., vacation and time-off, important team events, etc.)
  3. Ask everyone to add events to the calendar

Organising the team events is essencial for a successful engagement. By using the team calendar, you eliminate the time spent going back-and-forth with everyone involved, trying to coordinate the personal needs. The team calendar improves the team communication and alignment as per their important events.
