Permission required

The permission required for the 'Global' view of the calendar for all teams is 'Resource Planner'

Users without this permission will not be able to access 'Team' and 'Business Unit' calendars.

How to set up Team and Business Unit Calendars

Calendar views can be customised as your company finds necessary. This can be achieved via two different routes:

Teams

Select which users belong to the team and decide whether their calendar should be visible in the global calendar view or while creating appointments by activating or deactivating the 'Hide in Scheduler' option. By activating this option the calendar will be hidden from view.

Example for when you would like the team's calendar to be hidden could be a team of managers e.g. Managing Director or Sales managers and their calendar already shows as a part of a Sales Team calendar.

Business Units

Business units can be looked at as departments within your company. For more information, read this article.

Similar to teams decide if any of the business units should be visible in calendar view.
