In an unsurprising move, Google has taken steps to help their users out. They’ve figured out that their new friend and colleague access settings for Google Calendar is tremendously popular with those who have private or work-based calendars.

Open Google Calendar. Click the settings gear at the top right-hand corner of the page Click Settings On the left navigation under General, you’ll see “Invitees can only see invitations they are included in”.

Events created with default settings appear on other users’ calendars
Now events created with the default settings will show up on other users’ calendars without populating their event in your calendar. This update means that you can use the “auto-accept” feature to accept an invitation and it will only show up on your calendar while still showing up on your friend’s. To deactivate this feature, go to the main Calendar Settings page and expand the “Events” section. Scroll down to “Auto-Accept invitations”. Turn off the switch and hit Apply Changes. This will only apply your new settings to future events so if there’s an existing event that has gained access without your permission, you can go to their profile and adjust who is allowed access from Events > Auto Accept Invitations.
On top of that, recurring events created with default settings are not intended to be disabled by admins and therefore you may need to email support (firstname.lastname@example.org) to have them adjusted so if you deactivate an event that were previously daily or weekly events, they will automatically be turned back on once the old recurring event gets deleted manually by the admin who disabled it.Q: I accidentally made a repeating event repeat too far down the line, what can I do?A: In EventWish’s settings under Events>Advanced Settings, there

You can also access this from the email invitations so it’s not necessary to go through all of your sharing settings individually on each event. This is a very important update because events are often shared and attendees are not always people the organizer remembers to removal, which leaves important information unprotected. Location mapping – the public and private URL of your event will be both mapped on a Google Map which can be shared with others that want to find it somewhere in the world. This has been one of the biggest requests to make confirmings easier without having to jump over screens or ask organizers personally as it allows people oblivious to the mechanics of shared events under their own name to pick sessions they were invited to, family members they are dropping off at camp sites or any friend who wants to see where
Side note: Events will no longer show up on your
It seems as if Google finally listened to people’s concerns and gave an update. Now, events will now only show up when they are happening on the “My Day” tab.
