Sharing Calendars

Life is much easier when everyone is on the same page — be it your company or your family. Calendar offers two ways to share your calendars with others: publishing and exporting.

Publishing and sharing a calendar

When you publish a calendar (or share it, if you are using iCloud), you place a copy of it on the Internet or a local WebDAV server. Other users can then access it through Calendar, another third-party calendar application, or a standard web browser using any computing platform.

To publish a calendar:

1. Open the calendar list and then find the calendar or calendar group to which you want to publish in the calendar list.

2. Right-click (or Control+click) the calendar and select Publish from the menu. The Publish calendar window appears (shown in Figure 8.5). The Publish option only appears for local calendars, not iCloud or other network-based calendars.
