Types of Calendars

  • Personal Calendars:

    • These are calendars that are owned by your account. They show up on the left sidebar of Google Calendar under My calendars:


    • You control who these calendars are shared with. You can share them with specific people, or make them public with other people in the same Google domain:


  • Shared Calendars:

    • If someone else shares a calendar with you, it shows up under the Other calendars section on the left sidebar:


    • Depending on the level of permission you are given, you may be able to create/delete events on these, or only view them.
  • Resource Calendars:

    • These calendars are created by MLML IT and are used for resources rather than personal or group schedules. Resource calendars can be for reserving rooms, or vehicles, or equipment.
    • They will show up on your left sidebar under Other calendars.
