Google Calendar's missing schedule view

TeamCal provides a horizontal Schedule View for your Google Calendar. Instead of the typical Google Calendar view, which can become cluttered with overlapping events, TeamCal makes it easy to schedule events for many employees at once. This is especially useful for tasks like managing staff rotations, shift & vacation planning.

Schedule events with drag&drop directly based on your Google Calendar data. All changes are synced back to Google Calendar. Additionally, you can embed your schedule in a website or export a PDF.

Such a clever idea! Does it support private calendars as well to indicate whether someone is available without sharing their private/personal events?

@marckohlbrugge Thx! Yes, private calendars are supported too. As long as the other person shared her Google Calendar with you, TeamCal can use it.

Joel Califa (@notdetails) on Twitter told me Google Calendar already has a similar feature. I'm curious to how yours differs?

@marckohlbrugge The build-in Google Calendar feature is all about organizing a meeting by finding an empty time slot. It's only available on the create new appointment dialog and "read" only.

TeamCal on the other hand is intended for people to schedule staff rotations - so for example the person scheduling can use drag & drop to move an event from one person's calendar to another. Additionally because, TeamCal is showing the events horizontally it's possible to display dozens of people at the same time.

Hi all,

I created TeamCal after being responsible to schedule the work tasks of my team. It was always difficult to see who is currently doing what when displaying many different calendars in Google Calendar. Additionally, there is no nice way on how to assign an existing task to a different person. While Outlook comes with a built-in scheduling view, Google Calendar doesn't offer anything similar except when creating a new appointment. So, TeamCal was born. Let me know if you have any feedback or suggestions!

Can a freelancer use this and see value, or is it primarily beneficial to teams?

@NadineNBone TeamCal is primarily for teams. There are some use cases like event planning (e.g. weddings) where I have freelancers using TeamCal. If your freelance work requires coordinating other people then there is definitely value in using TeamCal.
