TeamCal Pro is still supported but will not be further developed and is replaced by the new TeamCal Neo.
TeamCal Pro is a web-based application utilizing PHP and a MySQL database. It’s generic purpose is the day-based absence management of project teams, more precisely of their members.
The goal was to create an optically attractive but also effective representation of a calendar display, showing the presence and absence of each team member. TeamCal Pro supports the customization of holiday types and absence types, thus its purpose can be altered to any graphical representation of timeline based processes or activities, e.g. a simple project plan or an event management.
TeamCal Pro is a free open source application. You can use it at no cost in any non-profit environment. If you want to utilize TeamCal Pro in a commercial context (like managing your employees’ absences) I kindly ask for a donation of 50.00 EUR.
Please go to the Home page and use the Donation Form there if you like. Thank You very much!
TeamCal Pro offers a wide variety of options that you can use to adjust its features to your needs. Those features include:
Year Calendar View
Besides of the month-based view you can switch to a year view for each user. In one glance you will see all absences of that user throughout the year. This is very helpful to sew how certain blocks of absences are spread over the year.
You can define notes for each day of the calendar like holidays, events, anniversaries and such. A daynote is indicated by a little red marker in the according cell. Moving the mouse over that cell will reveal the note in form of a pop-up window.
Manage Absence Types
Absence Type Icons
Each absence type can be assigned an icon. This icon is then displayed in the calendar views instead of it literal representation. TeamCal Pro comes with a variety of icon. Own icons can be uploaded as well.
Who can do what in TeamCal Pro is defined by permission schemes. You decide what permissions you want to grant to regular users, managers, directors or administrators – or even the public for that matter.
