If you've imported your events from another program or calendar, they'll automatically
be marked as either 'Public' or 'Private,' depending on the privacy settings of the
source calendar. Check to make sure your imported events reflect your desired privacy
settings. To facilitate meeting invitations, please check the box to “share this
calendar with everyone in the organization” and select “see only free/busy (hide details)”
from the drop down box.
Keep your events private
To ensure that the events on your calendar remain private, just follow these steps:
- In the calendar list on the left, click the down-arrow button next to the appropriate
calendar, then select Share this calendar. (Alternatively, click the Settings link at the bottom of the calendar list, select a calendar and click the Share this calendar link.)
- Check that the 'Make this calendar public' option isn't selected. Also, be sure not
to add anyone in the 'Share with specific people' section.
Finally, when creating events, make sure that the radio button next to either 'Default'
or 'Private' is selected under 'Options' > 'Privacy' on the event details page.
