Users cannot access event attachments in a shared Google Calendar 1 Recommended Answer 45 Replies 180 Upvotes

Hi! We have a shared Calendar at work. When I upload an attachment to an event in the calendar, people can see it, though they cannot open it. They have to request a permission every time. Why? They already share the whole calendar with me.

To solve this, I have to locate the uploaded file in the Drive, add individual permissions for users for that particular file, they receive an email, and then they can finally open the attachment in the event. This is cumbersome.

Why can't they open the uploaded file in the event when the whole calendar is shared among us and I just upload an attachment into an event that is a part of this calendar?

Maybe the problem is that the uploaded file is automatically added to my Google Drive but not into the particular work-related shared folder?

PS: is there an option to add a file or photo directly from phone to an event in Google Calendar? I onyl see the option to add a file that already exists in Drive.

After browsing online for two hours I could not find an answer :( Thank you in advance!

I too feel that, when sharing of a calendar is granted, those involved should also be able to access attachments. It's time consuming to paste links to drive docs in the notes section to work around this issue.

We are sharing a calendar with many many details related to any given event.  We attach them and can see them on a desk top but not on my android phone with the Google Calendar app

I have read all of the questions and answers but I still don't see a solution.   If a calendar is shared an attachment should be able to be viewed without special permissions.   I am uploading attachments to the calendar multiple times a day.   I don't have time to make sure every single person that can see the calendar has separate permission to view an attachment.   Is there a real solution?
