Step 1 - On the left hand panel, right click on the calendar you wish to share and select "Share calendar".


Step 2 - A new window appears:


Step 3 - Type in the email address of the person you want to share the calendar with (if it doesn't auto-populate just hit "search contacts").

  • Full Details = This allows the person you are sharing the calendar to view all events. This does NOT allow the person to add or remove events.

  • Editor = This allows the person you are sharing the calendar to view all events, as well as add and remove events.

Step 5 - You can type in a new subject (the one above is filled in automatically) and hit send to email the calendar invitation.

Step 6 - To finalize the share, the other person has to select the "Accept" button in your invitation email.



Your calendar has been shared.
