Sharing a gmail calendar with a specific other gmail user

All the members of your team are using gmail in general and also the gmail calendar to organise all the meetings and events. Is there a possibility to have a "business-calendar" everybody has access to and can read/write events?

Sharing the gmail calendar

It is possible to share your own calendar with several people. And it is also possible to import the calendars of several people. So by sharing a calendar you choose a calendar, a specific user and the permissions that this user shall have. After that, the chosen user gets an email with a link he hast to click on and that's it. From then on, he sees all the entries of yours, he has the permission to see.
The steps are:

  • go to your gmail calendar in your browser
  • under the section "My calendars" choose the calendar you want to share
  • click on the arrow on the right side
  • select "share this calendar"
  • under "share with specific people" you can choose a user you want to share your calender with
  • under "permission settings" you can choose, if the user can only read entries or if he can also write some
  • finally you have to enter the email adress of the user, click "add user" and click "save"
