Looking to learn how to share a Google Calendar? In this post, we're going to show you all there is to know about sharing your calendar.
By the end of reading this post, you'll be able to control who views and edits your calendars: friends, family, teammates, or public access on the internet.
In fact, we'll show you how to share a Google Calendar using any device, including your desktop computer, laptop, tablet, and mobile phone.
Yes, you can share your Google Calendar with one person or more. Google Calendar has no limit for how many people you can invite to collaborate.
Let's waste no time and jump right into the guide.
Open the app and hover over the calendar you wish to share, and select "Share with specific people". Then, send them invites via email.
Now, let's have a look at a few different ways to share your Google Calendar with people, may they be your friends, family, or the team from work.
To share a Google Calendar with anybody on the internet, you first need to make your calendar public in the settings.
You'll then be able to invite people from the internet to access it via a link which you can share with them (see the "Get shareable link" button below as well).
Google thought that you may need to share your G-Calendar with specific people, and hence, there is a section dedicated to this in the settings.
You'll see how there is the "Share with specific people or groups" option on the left side of the screen, as it is coloured with blue even in the image above.
Once you're there, you have to type the email or the name of the specific person you want to invite, and select which type of permission to grant them.
Lastly, click "Send" and they'll get the invite via email, where they can either accept or reject the invite to collaborate on your Google Calendar.
Note that if your Gmail account is part of an organization or team, it's most likely that you're already sharing calendars with your team, unless not specified otherwise.
This applies to most Google accounts made for schools and work addresses.
Note: A calendar named "Family" is automatically created when setting up your family accounts on Google.
Though, if you want to share one or more Google Calendars with your family and they're already private, you should follow the steps above.
It's a simple process where you just have to send invites via email.
Optionally, you can also tick the Make available to public box, but note that your Google Calendar will be available to everybody on the internet.
If you type in sensitive data in your calendar's events and somebody types them in Google, then your calendar might be visible to them.
Hence, please be careful with the "Make available to public" box, as you can easily share personal data without intending to do it.
Before copying and sharing the URL to your event in Google Calendar, you first need to publish it — then, you're free to copy the HTML code or the URL.
This applies to every mobile device: iPhone, iPad, Samsung phones and tablets, as well as any other Android mobile device.
You can only share a calendar on mobile using the web version of Google Calendar, and not in the actual app installed in your phone.
Update your Google Calendar's settings on a mobile device by accessing the web version through the Internet app and going to the calendar.google.com website.
Google Calendar's sharing settings can only be changed from a computer or a web browser, not inside the mobile app which you can download via the app store.
Go to the calendar.google.com website (can't do it in the app) and follow these steps:
