Google Calendars

Google Calendars allow you to view multiple calendars in one "view." You can hide or show each calendar by clicking on it's name in the left sidebar: if it is white it will be hidden, if it is colored then events will be showing in that color.

You can create as many personal calendars as you wish (eg. for different types of events), and you can also add shared calendars to your view in the "other calendars" list:

1) At the bottom of "other calendars" click Add and choose "Add by URL"

2) Paste in the URL of the calendar you wish to add, then "Add Calendar." The URL of a shared calendar needs to be generated or emailed by the calendar owner.

3) Calendar owners can share their calendars by adding individuals or staff groups to the calendar, or even making it public. To share a link, click on "Sharing," then "Calendar Details" (upper left). Scroll down to "Calendar Address" and click on iCal to copy the address.

4) Calendars can easily be embedded in Google Sites as well.

For "TBPS Staff Events" the URL is:

http://www.google.com/calendar/ical/wdsdvt.net_4toe8ei718lpk7195o9tfu61lo%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics

For "CBMS Staff Events" the URL is:

http://www.google.com/calendar/ical/wdsdvt.net_3nsq4p45bduejapkpejece5qi0%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics

URLs for School Events and Building Use are located at the bottom of those pages on our web sites.
