Atlassian released another update to its Team Calendars application for Confluence, with improved integration in this latest edition with Jira:
“Since Team Calendars 1.0, you’ve been able to map default date fields in JIRA – issue and version due dates – on a JIRA Calendar for everyone to see in Confluence. This was really helpful for Product and Project Managers to visualize the schedule of a project. However, you’ve since told us that these are not the only dates that are important to your team. We listened and with the release of Team Calendars 1.6 we’ve extended the JIRA Calendar type to support your custom date fields in JIRA“
I believe calendaring is really important for coordinating action between people, and when meetings and events are spread across multiple places, better tools are needed for bringing it all back together. For more, see Pillar 4 in the 7 Pillars.
