Sharing Google Calendar is easy, fast, and makes life so much easier. Check step by step
THE Google Calendar (or Google Calendar) is one of the most popular electronic calendar apps. This is due to ease of appointment management, integration with email and other applications, and more.
In addition to these basic functions, you can also share the Google Calendar and see between a team, group of friends, etc. With this sharing, depending on the level of access granted, members can view and receive notification and better manage events.
The advantages of this function are several. An example is the fact that someone may be able to arrange a meeting / meeting /happy hour with a group of people easily (without having to make those confusing lists in Whatsapp, for example). This sharing is also ideal for when you create a specific calendar and for something like tasks to be delivered, college exams, etc.
