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.

Go back as soon as you are done!

Share your group’s events in a read-only format to other calendar programs. This is a great tool for group members who use other calendar clients to have all their appointments in the one place.

Please note: This link is a read-only link to your Looping group’s calendar events. This means it can only be edited in the Looping app. Please be aware that there will be a short delay in your new Looping events appearing in your alternative calendar client. This delay is set in your alternative calendar client and can be adjusted in there only.
