Team Calendars FAQs

How do I set up Team Calendars?

It's easy! See Use Team Calendars for Confluence (Premium feature).

Why are you charging for this plugin?

There are a few reasons:

  • We feel we can solve a lot of specific problems with the combination of events, people, projects (JIRA applications) and content. Atlassian sees this plugin working alongside your personal meeting or events calendar.

  • Not every customer needs a team calendaring solution. Hence, by not bundling Team Calendars with Confluence, it doesn't increase the cost of Confluence for those customers who aren't going to use it.

  • The old plugin was not maintained or supported. In contrast, Team Calendars is maintained and supported moving forward.

What's happening with the old Confluence calendar plugin?

The old calendar plugin was never officially supported and as such carries no support from Atlassian. It is currently available as an open-sourced component, available on plugins.atlassian.com for use with legacy versions of Confluence (3.4 and earlier). The old calendar plugin does not work with Confluence 3.5.x or later versions. There are currently no plans to continue development on the old calendar plugin. If you are currently using the old plugin, there is a manual migration path to Team Calendars available by importing your iCal files.

Where can I give you feedback?

To give the Team Calendars team feedback, raise an issue in the TEAMCAL project on jira.atlassian.com.

Can I integrate Team Calendars with our company's Google Apps Calendar?

Yes you can. Learn more about this here:

Is Team Calendars available for Confluence Data Center?

Yes. All you need is a Team Calendars license for Confluence Data Center. Learn more about Data Center licensing

Can I map out custom issue date fields from JIRA applications?

Yes, you can! This was released as part of Team Calendars 2. See Add Jira events for more information.

Does Team Calendars work on my iPhone?

Although this is not officially supported, it does work on the iPhone. All you have to do is select "subscribe" from a specific calendar menu and login using your Confluence details. iOS should automatically attempt to add the calendar to your iPhone. More instructions here: Subscribe to Team Calendars from Apple iOS Calendar

Can I add more than one person to an event for my people calendar?

Yes you can. Just add multiple names in the people field.

Is Team Calendars available in my local language?

As of Team Calendars 1.1, the plugin is available in English and the bundled Confluence languages (French and German). We hope to have this plugin also available on translations.atlassian.com for other language support.

Can I change the date/time format (E.g. mm/dd or dd/mm)?

The date format is dependent on your language settings and automatically adjusts accordingly - this is a Confluence user and global setting. An admin can set the site default language and you can also set your language preference.

Can I change the starting day of the week?

The Team Calendars follows per user language preferences to decide which day is at the start of the week. For example, if you want to make the start of the week to Sunday (US Calendar), you would need to install the US Language pack and edit your Confluence user preferences to choose US English. To do this, click User name > Settings > Edit > Language and then choose US English

The Confluence default is to Automatically detect browser settings.

Can I subscribe to Google Public Calendar from Team Calendars?

Currently, it's not possible to subscribe to Google Public Calendar from Team Calendars. This is a known issue with Google Calendar; it appears that Google Calendar Public .ics file doesn't contain the data/event that can be read by Team Calendars to display events. Only Google Private Calendar can be subscribed from Team Calendars for now.
