Ok, nuff talking. Go check it out…Demo
TeamCal Neo is a web-based application utilizing PHP and a MySQL database. It’s generic purpose is the day-based absence management of project teams and other groups needing absence scheduling.
The goal was to create an attractive but also modern and effective representation of a calendar display, showing the presence and absence of each team member. TeamCal Neo 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 Neo is a free open source application. You can use it at no cost in any non-profit environment.
If you want to utilize TeamCal Neo in a commercial context (like managing your employees’ absences) a license fee of € 80 per year is required that also includes priority support. Read more about it here…
TeamCal Neo offers a wide variety of options that you can use to adjust its features to your needs. Those features include:
The administrator can create and configure absence types. Besides a one-letter code, icon and colors he can define thresholds and allowances per absence type. Absence types can also be restricted to certain groups only.
Absence Type Icons
You can define notes for each day of the calendar like holidays, events, anniversaries and such. But also personal daynotes are available. A daynote is indicated by a little marker in the according cell. Moving the mouse over that cell will reveal the note in form of a tool-tip.
Based on thresholds of a maximum absence percentage per group the Declination Management provides approval capabilities to group managers. You can also define periods in which absences will be declined.
Groups and Roles
Each user can be assigned to a group. The groups can be defined by the administrator. A user can be a simple member of a group or can be the manager of that group granting him certain additional rights.
Roles can be used to grant different permissions in TeamCal Neo.
Users can communicate with each other via the message center. Decide whether you want your message to pop up the next time the receiving user logs in or whether you want it to be sent to him via eMail.
Who can do what in TeamCal Neo is defined by permission schemes. You decide what permissions you want for each role you have configured. Each permission combination can be saved as a permission scheme so you can quickly switch between them.
TeamCal Neo comes with 17 skins. Chose dark, light or different color combinations to make it look just like you want. Each user can chose his/her own skin if you allow it. See all the skins in the TeamCal Neo Themes article…
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 see how certain blocks of absences are spread over the year.
