To ensure that events automatically added to your Google Calendar from emails (like flight confirmations from United Airlines) are visible to everyone who has access to your calendar, you need to adjust your calendar’s sharing settings. Here’s a step-by-step guide:
- Open Google Calendar: Go to the Google Calendar website on your computer.
- Access Calendar Settings: Click on the gear icon in the top right corner to open Settings.
- Select Your Calendar: In the left sidebar, you’ll see a list of your calendars. Click on the calendar you’re using for these events.
- Adjust Sharing Settings:
- Under the “Access permissions” section, check if you have the option to make your calendar public or share it with specific people.
- If you want to make the calendar public, select “Make available to public”. Be aware that this makes all events on this calendar visible to anyone.
- To share with specific people, choose “Share with specific people”, then add the email addresses of the people you want to share with. You can then set the permission level for each person (e.g., see all event details, make changes to events).
- Default Event Visibility: Under the “Event settings” section, check the default visibility for new events. This setting determines how new events (including those added automatically) will be seen by others. You might have options like “Default”, “Public”, or “Private”. Choose accordingly.
- Check Event Details: When an event is automatically added from an email, open the event and check its visibility setting. Sometimes, these events might be marked as private by default. You can change this by editing the event and adjusting its visibility.
- Regular Review: Periodically review your calendar settings and individual event settings to ensure they align with your sharing preferences.
- Google Calendar App: If you’re using the Google Calendar app on a mobile device, the process is similar, but the layout might be slightly different. Look for the menu icon or settings option to find calendar settings.
Remember, sharing settings in Google Calendar are quite flexible, so make sure you’re comfortable with the level of visibility you choose, especially when making a calendar public.
