Confluence – Team Calendars 1.8

Atlassian released version 1.8 of Team Calendars, with the new ability to integrate Confluence team calendars with Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook.

This release allows you to consolidate your Team Calendars and your personal calendar. With an already strapped personal calendar loaded with the day’s responsibilities, the idea of tracking the schedule of your coworkers is as farfetched as an airborne pig. But subscribing to your People and Events Calendars affords a new lens to your personal planning.

You might be planning a team lunch the week the majority of your team is on leave – viewing your People Calendars alongside your personal schedule keeps you from scheduling a meeting no one can attend in the first place.

This is a basic requirement for calendaring when team-specific calendars are moved to team-specific areas. See Pillar 4 in the 7 Pillars framework for more.
