We believe that sunsetting or discontinuing product features at the right time is an essential element of a healthy company. Although it always hurts to stop the development of a certain product, it allows us to focus on products that deliver higher value to our customers.
This first quarter in 2017 will be used to phase out our consumer offering of Calendar42. We already have been focusing on our B2B offerings for the past few years and it only follows naturally to now also let this product follow suit.
We took all the learnings we had and build a brand new planning & mobility platform from the ground up. Currently this is nicely humming along underneath Toogethr and will serve as the base to continue our B2B platform strategy on.
Which service will be phased out?
Only the following service will be phased out:
All other services will stay as is:
What will this mean for me?
I'm a paying Calendar42 B2B customer
Nothing major will change for you, the Calendar42 service and its Apps will just function as you expect them to.
I'm a non-paying Calendar42 user
We will disable registration in the first week of 2017. After this you can still log in and use Calendar42 until May 1st 2017. We will turn off several features earlier though, see the list below, under: Which consumer features will be disabled?
How can I download my planning data?
We offer two different options to retrieve your data:
1. Download your data as a CSV sheet
This allows you to open your planning data in your favourite Excel-like program and move from there. In order to do this we enabled a Premium Feature for all users in the Calendar42 App. First open the app and tap the indicated button in the top navigation bar:
You will find a new button here labeled "Export to CSV" in the top-right corner:
Press this button, wait for the CSV to be generated and press it again to download the CSV. Note that you can change the timespan of the export with date-picker in the top left corner.
2. Download your data through our REST API
This is method requires some coding skills, but allows you to export all your data programatically through our REST API (documentation). This method requires a so-called API Token in order to authenticate and retrieve your data. If you are interested in this method, make sure to reach out to support.
