Multiple Subscribers' Calendars (Top Level)
Posted 28 April 2006 - 05:01 PM
As account owner it appears that any/all subscribers top-level calendars they may create will be available to me to view/edit/etc ... true? Or will those top-level subscriber calendars only be accessable with that subscriber's login.
If they are uniquely login protected, I presume the subscriber could still add events from that calendar to the main top-level calendar (it would be "shared").
I think this is the last quesiton I have before I begin the creation/purchase process.
oops - I lied. One more related Question.
As owner of the master Top-Level shared calendar, can I create other top-level calendars that are only accessable by me?
(these seem obviously doable ... I think; just not overtly discussed that I could find).

Whether it's another person/subscriber in your group or you creating the calendar, the person who creates it (calendar owner) determines who else can see the calendar through sharing. In addition, the calendar owner determines the level of sharing (read, read/write, read/publish). Until the calendar owner shares a calendar, no one else will be able to see any calendars that person creates (unless they log in as that person).
Finally, these rules apply to top-level calendars as well as subcalendars. Subcalendars are just a way for you to organize things visually. There's no real hierarchical or inheritance relationship between parent and child calendars. The only one that's different is your primary calendar, which is always top-level and cannot be deleted. (On that note, for your sharing calendar, you might want to create a calendar that you share, rather than using your primary calendar.)
Once a calendar is shared with read/write permission, the people who have been given those permissions can add and edit events on the shared calendar (but not others in the owner's account that aren't shared).
I hope I answered the questions without being too convoluted! Let me know if I missed something. Have fun!

I did intend for the primary top level Calendar to be "the" shared calendar for all ~15 others. Everyone would keep all generic stuff on that one shared/published calendar. Then each subscriber would have their own "private" calendar that would/could hold more detail, etc. So the primary account holder would create a second Calendar that would be his "private" calendar.
I think this makes sense with your reply ... check me. Yes/No

Yep! Sounds perfect.

p.s. I'm glad you were able to undestand me, because I'm not so sure I can when I re-read it. Maybe logged in too long. :)
