For millions of people, Google Calendar is the diary and task management app of choice. Given so many people have a Gmail address and a Google Account, it’s an easy and fast solution. And thanks to the app’s recent redesign, it now looks better than ever.

Of course, the app is packed with fancy features and hidden tricks, but today, we’re going back to basics: how to share a Google Calendar with friends, family, or colleagues.

You have two sharing possibilities. You can either make the calendar public so everyone can see it, or you can share it with a specific person or people.

    Hubs isn't really into tech stuff so I do all the work. I set up sharing for our calendars, he has a lot of appointments, so I enter them on his calendar along with reminders and they automatically update on mine. Also Google Keep, same thing.
