The information below is for the new version of Google Calendar. If you use the old version, sign in to Google Calendar and then refresh this page.

Transfer Google calendars or events

You can transfer calendars you own to other owners, or transfer events to another owner or calendar.

You can't transfer events from the Android or iPhone app, but any changes you make on your computer will show up in the app too.

Transfer a calendar you created
  1. On your computer, open Google Calendar.
  2. On the left side of the page, click My calendars.
  3. Hover over the calendar you want to add someone to, and click Options More.
  4. Click Settings.
  5. In the "Share with specific people" section, enter the email address or group you want to make an owner.
  6. Click Add person.

The person or group you added will now also own the calendar.

To remove someone as an owner, the owner can click Unsubscribe, or another owner remove them from the calendar. 

Important: If the person who created the calendar is removed from the "Share with specific people" section, the calendar will be deleted for everyone if nobody else on the calendar had "Make changes AND manage sharing" permissions.

Transfer an event to a calendar you don't own

If you created an event, you can make someone else its owner. Once someone else is the owner, they can change any of the event details.

  1. On your computer, open Google Calendar.
  2. See the event details by clicking the event you want to change.
  3. Click Options More.
  4. Enter a new owner and a message to send them.
  5. Click Change owner.
  6. The new owner will get an an email with a link. Until the new owner accepts ownership, you'll be the event owner.
Transfer an event to a calendar you own
  1. On your computer, open Google Calendar.
  2. See the event details by clicking the event you want to change.
    • In "Agenda" or "Monthly" view, click the event, then Edit Event.
    • In "Day," "Week," or "4 Days" view, click the event name.
  3. Click Options More.
  4. Select the calendar where you want the event to show up.
