 Create Groups

 

Invite family members, your partner, colleagues from work, classmates from university, or fitness buddies into your group and get started with groups. You can join a group, leave a group or edit/remove group members anytime. Looping also lets you create events within your groups and seamlessly move group events to other groups.

 

 Add & View Group Members

 
 
 

All group members can add new members to the group. Once a member has created an appointment in this group, this appointment automatically appears in the Looping calendar of all other members. All members can edit the respective appointment and add notes. When new events are created or current events are edited, all members get informed via a push-notification. If you’re looking to edit or leave your group, you can follow these steps:

 
 
 

 Create Events

 

Select between normal, recurring, multi-day, and/or all-day events. All events can be easily edited or deleted, and reminders can be set so you never miss out on an important event again!

Create Group Events

 

Looking to create a new events for your groups, perhaps an event that is recurring? We’ve put together a simple overview to keep you on track! We’ve also got reminders that you can enable. Easily edit your events in the app by following these steps:

Step 1: Select “calendar” in the upper panel & click on the date, where you can start editing your events. Simply click on the edit symbol and change the parameters.

Step 2: Assign your events to different groups or make it a private event. To save your changes, click “save.” All your group members will be notified of the changes.

 

 Switch from Month to Week

 

Looping lets you easily switch between weekly, monthly or list overviews. Simply select the upper arrow to open the dropdown menu.

 

 Master your ‘To-Do’ with Lists

 

Our “lists'“ feature allows you to create, edit, delete, or attach customised lists to your events.

 
 
 
 

Step 1: Open the settings area and select “lists”

Step 2: Once you’ve created a task, tap “done.”

Step 3: You can now attach your customised lists to your events. Once attached to a group, the list automatically appears in the Looping app so all members within that group will receive immediate access to the list.

Note: Whenever you have a list linked to an event, you may access the list via event details or open the “list mode” in settings. Once you’ve completed a task, you can mark or delete it. To delete, simply press the task for a long time and tap on the trash icon that appears. If you wish to rename your list or wish to attach it to another event, simply tap the pencil icon.

 

 Explore our ‘Discover’ Feature

 

Access and customise your calendar with all the latest trends in sports, holidays, entertainment, television, fashion, music and culture. Add and share your discoveries with your network.

 

 Get Connected with Chat

 

Tap “Calendar” in the header tab and click on the month. Select the event you would like to add a message to. Click on “Message” in the events’ header tab Once you’re in the message area, you can add or read messages.

 
 

Calendar Import

You can now import your events from your local mobile calendar into your Looping calendar! Each import enables up to 200 appointments within the next 12 months to be transferred from your local calendar. Should you have more than 200 appointments, don’t worry! You simply need to re-run the “import” operation again to import your additional events. Note: Each local calendar event can only be imported once per user account.

We suggest running the “import” on a stable network connection, as this process may take up to 10 minutes - depending on how many events are being imported. Furthermore, you can optionally sign your imported events to selected groups, or add these as private events. If the selected group has members, all events will automatically appear in each member’s calendar.

Reminders:
All events can be linked with reminders set at 15 minutes, 1 hour, 3 hours, 24 hours or 1 week before the event.

Recurrence:
Events that are recurring over a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or yearly period will retain its recurrence.

Step 1: Open the left menu and tap ‘import calendar’. Select the account you wish to import calendar events from. Tip: If you organised your events in separate calendars (i.e. birthdays, holidays etc.) and wish to keep this, we suggest you create separate groups representing each of these calendars before you begin with the “import” process.

Step 2: Select the group you wish to import your selected calendar events into. If you don’t select a group, keep in mind that your events will be imported to your calendar as private events.

Step 3: You may also assign these imported events individually to your respective groups, however this may be time-consuming for some. Whenever you add new events to your local mobile calendar you may follow the steps listed above.

 
 

Calendar Export

 

Looping’s Calendar Export feature lets you easily share the events of your groups in a read-only format to other calendar programs - an effective tool for group members who use other calendar clients in managing all of their events in the one place.
