Setting Up Sub-Calendars
Setting up sub-calendars according to your needs is like a blueprint needs to be designed for the purpose of the building. Consider adding sub-calendars for the most distinctive aspect of who/what/where of events when the benefits associated with sub-calendars are important to you. For example, if it is important to prevent double-booking of a room, you’d need a sub-calendar for the room since disallowing double-booking is only applicable to individual sub-calendars.
How to add sub-calendars
- Go to Settings > Calendars
Alternatively, click Add/Edit below the sub-calendar list
- Click New
Good to know

- There are 48 colors available and reusable for the sub-calendars
Share Your Calendar with Users
Once you have the sub-calendars set up, you are ready to share the calendar with other users. Depending on what you want the users to do with the calendar, you may customize the access permission for each user or user group. There are 9 levels of access permissions, from read-only, add only to modify one’s own events but not changing events created by others, and from no access at all to events on selected sub-calendars to full rights to modify or administer the calendar.
