How do I share my g calendar with my wife and allow her to add items. fred.keppler 9/18/09 8:20 AM
I would like to share a single calendar with my wife and give her access to edit/add items.  I would also like her to be able to view the calendar via her mobile devise.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am having the same problem and can't find an answer. I can allow my wife to view my calendar but I'd like the option to let her edit it too.

Go to calendar settings>calendars> find your email address and then click where it says 'share this calendar' then go to person and enter her email address and the permission settings you want. Then you send her the link to your google calendar.

Anotherperson, this only allows people to view and edit event I put on the calendar. It doesn't let them post new events.

Huenshan: you have to share your calendar with her and she has to go through the same and share HER  calendar with YOU.

We still can't add new events, it only allows us to edit existing events. :(

Ok: set up account 1 so that it can share with account 2, then set up account 2 so that it can share with account 2 (don't forget to click save). Then when you create an event from acct 2 to acct 1 on the tab that comes up is this option: calendar  acct 1 or acct 2. Since you want to create in acct 1 choose acct 1. That's it.

Correction:  set up account 1 so that it can share with account 2, then set up account 2 so that it can share with account 1.

I am having a similar problem and I think I know why ... but I still can't seem to fix it.  I am a small business owner and use Google Apps with my own domain for my business.  My husband, I and my daughter all use gmail for personal email.  I am setting up a personal Google calendar under my personal email address just to put my travel and "out of office" type events on it so that my family can more easily keep track of when I'll be home.  They don't want to see all the details of my day - just want to know if I'll be eating and sleeping there each night (so to speak). 
I am trying to allow myself to make changes and manage sharing on my two calendars, so that if I am in the work one I can copy an event to my personal one or if I am in my personal one I can copy an event to my work calendar.  It appears that Google is allowing my work calendar (the one with my domain name) to make changes on my personal gmail calendar, but it is NOT allowing my gmail calendar (or my husband's or daughter's) to make changes on my work calendar (even though I tried to set the permissions to allow this).  When I am in the work calendar Shared-Edit Settings dialog box, it shows two different lengths of drop-down boxes.  My two employees have the option to "make changes and manage settings" whereas this option does not show up for my non-domain calendars.
Any way to fix this so my non-domain calendars can make changes on my domain calendar?

This is perhaps a bit simple, but we use one account and all log on to the calendar with that account. I don't use that account for anything else, sort of a family account. We can all add events and I haven't seen an issue with multiple people logging on from different computers at the same time.

My situation is similar to WoS who posted an entry on 10/5/09.  I have a personal gmail account and I want to share a calendar with someone who has business domain name for his account.  When we set up to share the calendar, he can see my calendar, etc but I can not see his calendar.  We have gone through the steps and redid the steps when it didn't work but found no success.  It appears the problem is that his domain address causes his calendar events to not appear on my calendar.  Neither of us want to create a separate account just for the calendar so how can we fix this problem?

I am suffering from the same issue.  We can edit on each other's calendars, but my phone does not register when she adds things to her calendar.  I so want a fix for this!

My wife and I are able to edit our calendar. How can I enable her to view my task list? She is unable to view our to do list on our shared calendar.

Blinding flash of the obvious: give your wife your account password.

This won't work in all situations, of course. Another good solution would be to create a new Google Calendar account and share the information with all parties.
If logging into this account is a hassle, then use your personal account to subscribe to it, that way you can view the items in the group account attached to your personal account.

This should help: (From the Google Help)

Allow friends to edit your events

Print

Your friends will be able to edit calendars that you've specifically shared with them. First, you'll need to share your calendars with your friends. Once you've invited your friends to share your calendars, select the "Make changes to events" permission from the drop-down menu in the "Share with specific people" section.

If you'd like your friends to be able to edit the calendar's sharing options as well, just select "Make changes AND manage sharing."

This is not an option from my domain calendar.  The only drop down choice for my wife's (non-domain) invitation is to 'see only free/busy'.  There is no option to do any more.  Do I need to add her my domain somehow?
Re: How do I share my g calendar with my wife and allow her to add items. akohler 10/15/09 9:27 AM
It appears that you must add your wife to your domain first.

"Make changes to events
This person can see and change all events, including private ones. You cannot grant someone outside your domain this level of access to your primary calendar."

Hope that fixes it.

Sorry if this is late -- the issue is that in your Apps settings, sharing google calendar outside of your domain is set to "only free/busy information" -- but it only applies to domain calendars.  As mentioned above, your personal calendar can only be edited by you. I'd recommend setting up a secondary calendar and using it for that within the domain.  Then:

1.  Log into the Dashboard of your Google Apps domain.
2.  From the service settings drop-down click "Calendar".
3.  Enable "Share all information, and outsiders can change calendars".
4.  Click "Save Changes".

This will adjust the overall domain calendar.  It will not give everyone complete access to your calendar.

Now go into your google calendar as before, share with specific people, enter the email address, then select the access granularity you'd like that person to have.

Seems this would be easier.  All of these people are having the same issue and . . . where's the answer.
We want to share your calendar with serveral people . . . how do we do it?  Maybe there is a better calendar out there than Google???  One idea would be tohave a button that says "Share My Calendar"  I know . . . novel idea.  Who put this together???  Common sense .  . .  it seems . . . would help.
Re: How do I share my g calendar with my wife and allow her to add items. JDSmall1 3/4/10 12:40 PM
The video tells us how to do it . . . "click on the edit page button"  another novel idea.  Where is the "Edit Page Button"?

Go here:

Elevate sharing options to max.

Sign out.

Wait 10-30 minutes.


go to settings > calendar

Elevate settings to max.

yeah it's retarded.
Re: How do I share my g calendar with my wife and allow her to add items. Mariposas 5/17/10 10:08 PM
My problem is sharing with someone who is not using GMail/Google calendar. The sharing option only allows other people to edit events you have put on the calendar, they cannot ADD events. So, after reading through all the above discussion, it seems that the only suggestion that would allow someone else to add events is to set up a new account just for the calendar. Then let everyone involved log in to the account. You just give the login password to the people you want to use the calendar. This makes everyone the "primary" user of the account and gives access to add, edit or delete events. The account email can be used to communicate between members to discuss events if needed. How does that sound to you?

Edit
 
i have it so that my employee can see my calendar but if she edits an event or adds a new event i see nothing on my end that she sees aren't they suppose to sync so we are viewing the same exact things

I will pursue some of these suggestions.

What might help is if it were easy to find a brief statement about what each permission level/setting is meant to do.

It would also be nice to have a discrete option to allow a viewer who had the ability to do any combination of the following:

a) View 'busy/free' blocks of time.
b) View details of any particular calendar item.
c) Edit details of any particular calendar item.
d) Add a new calendar item.

I changed the permissions in the dashboard, but still cannot let someone else edit my calendar. Is there a waiting period before it takes effect?
Re: How do I share my g calendar with my wife and allow her to add items. techgoose 11/30/11 10:44 AM
This used to work as described by several answers here, however this week (11/28/11) it stopped working for her; alternating between "busy blocks" or no access at all, on each of her web calendar, ical, and iPad.

Upon logging in to investigate, I find that her access was set to (blank) and the only available option is "see only free/busy."   The other options are not even on the pop-up any more.   Is this a glitch?  Did Google change something?  Please advise, this is causing disruption to a system that was working perfectly.

We are having the same problem as techgoose on 11/30/11. It was working about a week ago, then suddenly it's not. Goggle must have changed something. Now what?
