Add someone else's Google calendar

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

Ways to add someone else's calendar

Add using an email address

Ask to see a calendar

  1. On your computer, open Google Calendar.
  2. On the left side, next to “Other calendars,” click Add Addand then Subscribe to calendar.
  3. In the “Add calendar” box, enter the person's email address, or click one from the list.
  4. Press Enter.
  5. Depending on how their calendar is shared, one of the following happens:
    • If the calendar isn't shared with you, we'll prompt you to request access.
    • If the calendar is already shared with you, their calendar will be added on the left side under "Other calendars."
    • If the other person doesn't have a Google Calendar, we'll prompt you to invite them to use Google Calendar.

Approval by the other person

If their calendar isn't shared with you, the other person gets an email requesting access. 

To accept your request, the other person should:

  1. On your computer, open the email you sent requesting access.
  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 on the left side under "Other calendars." If you don't see it, try refreshing the page.
