Everyone knows them, and most fear them. Whether at work or university, they’re lurking everywhere: Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines. The more people who work together, the more complex and confusing it gets. A single delay at one point in the project, has a knock-on effect on the entire team, and of course the overall completion of the entire project. We’ve put together tips for you and your team to make sure you meet every deadline, every time, thanks to Teamplace.
Schedule planning basics:
- Planning: Most deadlines are not met because of a lack of planning. So, think about all the tasks that need to be done first.
- Write down dates and milestones: Record all tasks and intermediate steps in writing and when they must be completed. This way you’ll always have an overview.
- Coordination with all players involved: Keep your team up to date so that handovers and collaboration works smoothly.
How to set up a group calendar with Teamplace:
The best thing is that you can implement these 3 tips quickly and easily and without any effort all thanks to Teamplace.
- Create Teamplace and upload calendar template
Simply create a shared Teamplace or add a calendar to an existing Teamplace. Excel offers plenty of templates to create calendars in no time at all. After uploading the calendar to the Teamplace, you can start planning and entering your appointments and deadlines directly.
- Enter and edit appointments
With the fully integrated office programs in Teamplace, you can work together on documents as a team and even edit them simultaneously. And that’s exactly what you can do with a calendar. You can design the whole thing as freely as you like and even add comments. Teamplace users are also free to choose between the standard Libre Office program or Microsoft Office 365, which requires an Office 365 Business or Education account.
- Always up-to-date
The Activity Stream notifies all team members about any changes so no one misses an important deadline. With the mobile app you can also keep any eye on things when you’re on the go. All other Teamplace features also work with this type of calendar, for example controlling who accesses the calendar and when.
While this idea doesn’t replace other specialized, calendar-based applications, it’s a pragmatic approach that allows you to find a quick and practical solution for scheduling.
