Assigning Events

It would be extremely helpful to be able to assign events to people. I schedule multiple estimator's appointments. While assigning tasks has been working so far (I use a paper calendar to keep track of who is where) it won't work as our company is growing.

If it were possible to assign events to specific people, and have them show up on my calendar accordingly, it would be very helpful.

    @Stacy - Would you mind sharing your workaround?

    3 years and still not even on the roadmap? I agree, this is ridiculous that it hasn't been fixed by now.  You can assign just about anything else to other users, but not events?  We'd use tasks but they don't have specific times.

    This (among other frustrations at the lack of ability to fix basic flaws like this) has been a big factor in our team souring on Insightly-we will be looking for other platforms as soon as our contract ends.

    Hello Everyone,

    Thanks for all the upvoting and great feedback regarding this feature request!

    Unfortunately, it is not currently in our roadmap. If Insightly decides to incorporate this feature well be sure to communicate this and update the status of the post.

    This is a very essential function for our business.

    I feel foolish because I pushed our company to use the Insightly calendar rather than our email calendar, and now I realize you can't add events to other users calendars.

    Please consider including this function in the near term!

    Can we at least get an explanation for why this isn't on the roadmap?

    Our next quarterly release is jam-packed with goodies and this one simply didn't make it. I will talk to our Product team to see if this request can be considered in Q4.

    I appreciate your response, Dennis. I'm new to Insightly. So the next quarterly release is Q3, and it hasn't come out at this point? Are releases done at the end of the quarter, then?

    It all depends on the size of the release. This year, our Q1 release was in March and our Q2 release followed shortly after in April. This release will be bigger than those two so it's taking a little bit more time. But as a general rule of thumb, end of the quarter would be a safe bet. (Our Q3 falls between August - October)

    We typically make an announcement a few weeks ahead of every release and invite all our customers to join a live webinar with our CEO. So stay tuned for that!

    Dennis B. - I really appreciate the information and the quick response.

    This is a very basic function. I'm boggled as to why we wouldn't have this fixed yet.

    Happy New Year, folks!

    I just got a nice surprise from our Product and Engineering teams and I am very excited to share with everyone here that this feature has been implemented in Insightly!

    We know this has been one of the most sought out features so we're extremely happy to deliver this to you and cross it off our list 😅

    Thank you for all your requests and votes. We can't wait for you to try it out and give us your feedback!
