Calendar

SOGo calendars are an important tool of collaboration with your team members.

Your personal calendar must be visible for your peers to see; this way they can tell where you are at any given moment. These are the steps to do share your personal calendar.

  1. Click on the "  Sharing…" menu next to your calendar. Mind that you have to scroll in the context menu.

  2. Choose "Any Authenticated User"–all SOGo users will have access to this calendar.

    • Public: "View All"

    • Confidential: "View the Date & Time"

    • Private: None

  3. Choose "Public Access" and set all to none if there isn’t a really good reason somebody unauthenticated should access your calendar.

    • Public: None

    • Confidential: None

    • Private: None
