Did you know that you could create a simple and easy Google Calendar, make it public and show it on your website?

It can become cumbersome to share your calendar with clients manually or to try to sync up over the phone. Google has a great solution: Publish your calendar on your website.

When you make your calendar public, the events on that calendar are made available to the public. People can search for it and find it on the web.

  1. Click the drop-down arrow to the right of My calendars
  2. Select Create new calendar
  3. Enter information about your new calendar
  4. Click the Create calendar button

All of the calendars you create will be listed under My Calendars on the left side of your page. For each of the calendars, you can add, delete, and edit events any time you like.

In the calendar list on the left, click on the down-arrow button next to the appropriate calendar, then select Share this calendar.

  1. Select Make this calendar public.
  2. If you don’t want others to view the details of your events, select See only free/busy (hide details).

You can make a single event private by setting the event to ‘Private’ under Options >Privacy
