Add someone else's calendar

You can view someone else's calendar if they've shared it with you. If they haven't shared their calendar with you, you can request access.

Ask to see a calendar

  1. While on a computer, open Google Calendar.
    Note: You can only edit Google Calendar sharing settings from a computer, not the mobile app.
  2. Find Other calendars on the left side.
  3. Enter the other person's email address where it says Add a friend's calendar or Add a coworker's calendar.
  4. Press Enter.
  5. Depending on how their calendar is shared, one of the following will happen:
    • If the calendar is not shared with you, you'll see a form to request access.
    • If the calendar is already shared with you, their calendar will be added under "Other calendars."
    • If the other person doesn't have a Google Calendar, you'll see a form to invite them to use Calendar.

Approval by the other person

If their calendar is not already shared with you, the other person will receive an email requesting access. To accept your request, the other person should follow these steps:

  1. While on a computer, open the email you sent requesting access. The subject line will be similar to "[Your email address] would like to view your calendar."
  2. Click the link in the email.
  3. In the Settings page that opens, choose a permission setting and select Add Person.
  4. Click Save.

After the other person has accepted your request, their calendar will appear under Other calendars. You may need to refresh the page.

Note: You can only edit Google Calendar sharing settings from a computer, not the mobile app.

Hide someone else's calendar

You can always hide someone else's calendar by clicking the name of their calendar under "Other calendars." In the Calendar mobile app, touch the name of their calendar listed under the main menu .  You can tell if the calendar is hidden if the square next to it is an outline .

If you don't need access to this calendar anymore, you can also unsubscribe.
