TeamCal NeoTeamCal Neo is a web-based calendar application and successor to the popular TeamCal Pro. It’s purpose is the day-based absence management of project teams.

TeamCal Neo’s goal is to maintain the successful concept of a day-based calendar while providing an easy yet attractive user interface.

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. I have seen many great ideas of how to use TeamCal Pro that can also be done in TeamCal Neo.
