Suggestion: private tick box for calendar events?

This is actually a common functionality in calendar software.

Especially for those of us who do not work fixed hours, it just comes as natural to use the Pipedrive calendar for both private and work related events. Putting private events in there also ensures availability is reliably presented, esp. when using the Scheduler.

The problem is, everyone in the team can see these private items and we usually do not want our colleagues to need to browse through the "Walking the dog"s  and "Uncle's birthday party"s to get to the relevant information. 

We can of course just name the private event something like "Private" but then we ourselves lose the ability to see what's exactly on our schedule.

Hence the suggestion:

  • a "private" tick box that  makes the event visible to the owner, but  just appearing as "private" or "busy" to everyone else

and/or

  • ability to sync another calendar in addition to the primary one;  and choose whether all events synced from it are marked as private or public.

That's it! Keep up the good work

    Thank you for illustrating your suggestion so clearly @Darek Młodnicki , we appreciate your input and it really helps us!

    We are aware of these current shortcomings and I'd point you to the answers and workarounds suggested in some similar posts here and here

    Right now there are no concrete short term plans to make these improvements. Unfortunately with many customers and requests and with limited development resources we need to prioritise and make choices what to deliver first. We will make sure, however, our team considers your suggestions but we can never make any promises.

    Speaking of which, here’s how to stay on top of what’s coming down the line:

    I am also wondering about this as it makes the benefit of syncing the calendar not a benefit anymore
