Today Flexibits released a major update to Fantastical with version 3.1. This is the “working from home” update with a bunch of new features aimed at people surprised to find themselves working from home:
Time-Based Calendar Sets
Calendar sets have always been a cool feature. Now you can have them trigger automatically at a specific time of day.
Better Conference Calling
Fantastical’s Zoom integration is excellent. You can add a zoom call straight from the app. With this update, Fantastical can now auto-detect conference calls with several popular conferencing services, and it adds a one-click “join” button to your calendar (and your menubar) as the event approaches.
And More Improvements
They also added new Mac appearance options customized for both light and dark mode, added iMessage stickers, and made several other improvements and optimizations.
This is a free update for Fantastical subscribers. I made a few videos for Flexibits showing off the new features. Below is one, but you can find several more on Fantastical’s website. I like the way Flexibits has continued to release features of consequence since the app launch. I am using both the new time-based calendar sets and zoom integration daily. Learn more about Fantastical at their website.
If you subscribed to the Fantastical Field Guide, these new videos are also now available in the course for viewing and download.
