The Team Calendars development team has been working hard to make Team Calendars a bridge between Jira and Confluence. We’re excited to announce that our next major release – Team Calendars 1.6 – is available for download now!
Since Team Calendars 1.0, you’ve been able to map default date fields in Jira – issue and version due dates – on a Jira Calendar for everyone to see in Confluence. This was really helpful for Product and Project Managers to visualize the schedule of a project. However, you’ve since told us that these are not the only dates that are important to your team. We listened and with the release of Team Calendars 1.6 we’ve extended the Jira Calendar type to support your custom date fields in Jira
Display Custom Date Fields from Jira on Calendars in Confluence
If you have custom date fields for your Jira Projects – ‘QA Due Date’, ‘Scheduled Deployment Date’, etc – you can now map them on a Jira Calendar inside of Confluence. It’s quick and easy to set up from wither the the ‘Create Jira Calendar’ and ‘Edit Jira Calendar’ dialogs.
The custom dates fields you select for any given particular Jira Project will show in month, week, and list views. When you combine your Jira and People Calendars you’ve got a solution that gives your team a better understanding of a project’s progress and the ability to identify potential resourcing issues that may impact its delivery.

We don’t blame you! Here’s a quick review of what we’ve been up to, in case you missed it.:
