Create Groups

  • Why are Looping groups so practical?
  • How can I create a group?

Looping groups allow you to organise appointments together with multiple persons. When creating appointments in a group, these appointments automatically appear in the other group members' Looping calendar.  All group members can create and edit appointments and add notes.  

A specific colour can be assigned to each group, making it immediately clear, which appointment  belongs to which group.

Click on the PLUS to add a new appointment to one of your groups. 

  Just click on a date of your choice to see the details or to adapt/modify it.

Click on the widget and then let go, to start adapting it. Modify the size by stretching the widget. For this purpose just draw at the points and last but not least, click anywhere, apart from the widget, that’s it!

Import calendar

You can now import appointments from your local mobile calendar to your Looping calendar. Every time you perform an import, you are able to import up to 200 appointments within the next 12 months from your local calendar. If you have more than 200 appointments don’t worry, just run the import operation again to import any missing or new appointments, each local calendar event can only be imported once per user account.

You should be on a stable network connection as the import may take up to 10 minutes when you import a lot of appointments.

Your imported appointments can optionally be assigned to a selected group or alternatively added as private appointments. If the selected group has members, all these appointments will also appear automatically in each member’s calendar.

Reminders - appointments with reminders set at 15 minutes, 1 hour, 3 hours and/or 1 day before, will retain these properties. Recurrence - appointments with a recurrence period of weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or yearly, will retain its recurrence series. In the future, it will be possible to import events with all reminder properties and customised recurrence series intact.

After the import you are able to update any of the imported appointments as a normal looping appointment such as adding/removing reminders or changing the recurrence. Just tap on the appointment, tap on the edit icon and then choose a reminder time or recurrence and you’re done!
