Team Calendar Macro

Add the Team Calendar macro to a page to display a calendar on a Confluence page, making it easy to track and manage events. 

This macro is great for:

  • displaying team events, project timelines, and milestones in project and team spaces
  • sharing Jira issue due dates and sprint dates on sprint planning or retrospective pages
  • publishing schedules and on-call rotations where everyone can see them.
