Confluence scales excellently. Often, these kinds of systems grow from grassroots, starting with an implementation in individual teams or departments and culminating in extensive business-wide roll-outs. Ultimately, Confluence is often used by international enterprises whose teams are spread out over different countries and time zones.
Easy Events is a Confluence app which lets you manage a company's internal events and their participants: meetings, professional development sessions, business events, internal workshops, etc. The solution lets you integrate a widget containing all the important details about an event into any desired Confluence page. And with a single click, users can register their intention to participate.
A number of supportive features, such as calendar overviews, exportable participant lists, read-only events and more, make Easy Events a practical, all-round helper for planning and preparing business events.
Time zone support
With the new release of version 1.11, Easy Events for Confluence now offers timezone support. Users from other time zones will now be able to see events adjusted for their correct time of day.
This feature might not seem like a big deal at first glance, but this kind of automation can help synchronize international teams, improve clarity and efficiency when organizing joint meetings and avoid misunderstandings. For large businesses working across multiple locations with teams spread around the globe, this aspect should not be underestimated. (By the way, this is just the first of many iterations to improve time zone support - more useful features will follow.)
New design for events lists
A more striking new feature of Easy Events 1.11 is the visual redesign of the automatically generated events list. Icons for place, date and time make it easier to keep track of meetings. The start date of an event stands out and is limited to the day and month. (Users can find a full description on the right side of the page in the event information.) Categories, which indicate an event's content, are now more visible and are displayed as labels separately from the event information.
These changes, which are subtle when taken separately, work together to make a user's life easier and provide a better user experience.

Easy Events for Confluence: single-columned events list.
