  • The column on the left-hand side of the screen will show you all of the iCloud calendars you currently have set up. Next to each name is the silhouette of a sharing icon. Clicking on the icon will allow you to invite others to share that specific calendar. Once a calendar is shared, the silhouette will turn green, as you see next to some calendars in the screenshot above, indicating the calendar is shared.

  • You can enter any e-mail address to send the invite; the recipient will just need to use an iCloud account to accept it. Once someone joins the calendar, you'll see a green check mark next to his or her name.

  • To change whether someone can edit a calendar, click on the arrow next to his or her name. From here you can take away editing privileges or remove them from the calendar.

By sharing a calendar, hopefully you don't miss out on important events and appointments you normally would have forgotten about. You can also share an iCloud calendar from your iOS device , as well as your Mac .
