Add calendars easily with templates

Add calendars easily by selecting from the calendar templates available in our (new) edit screen. Every single calendar template provides useful default settings which makes it easier for you to start working with your calendars in Confluence. Of course, choose between different view options: calendar, timeline, and list view for each individual calendar template.

Choose between different layout options

Change the calendar layout depending on the calendar dates you share.

Jira dates might better be displayed in a timeline view (e.g. Jira releases or sprints) while shared Outlook dates will better be displayed in a calendar view (e.g. holidays or user calendar’s).

The calendar automatically displays the data of the team member who is currently viewing the Confluence page.

View meeting details with a click.

Work with Jira calendars in Confluence

Additionally, you can decide on some editing options when sharing the calendar.

Show and edit Jira dates (issues and releases)

Connect your Outlook Calendars in Confluence with Jira for insights into project progress. View all your issues/releases at once, or any single custom date field in your calendar (also based on custom fields).

Simple permission management

Manage calendar permissions easily yourself. Choose who can see or edit calendars in Confluence.

Decide if everyone with access to the Confluence space or page can view the data shared or if it should only be those with a Microsoft 365 or Jira Log-in.

You can even allow for non-Confluence users to access your calendar data shared on a page or space (admin configuration needed).

Sharing of Jira information is only available for Confluence Cloud.
