Using Google Calendar's Layering feature

If you want to combine multiple, non-conflicting calendars of your employees, use Google Calendar's Layering feature.

Directions:

  • Select Other Calendars on the left hand side of your calendar view
  • Enter the email address of employees in the Add a coworker's calendar section, then click Enter

If your coworker's calendar is private:

  • Select Other Calendars on the left-hand side of your calendar view
  • Enter the email address of employees in the Add a coworker's calendar section, then click Send Invite. This will send an email, inviting your employees to link calendars with you.

To make your calendar accessible to employees:

  • On right hand side of calendar click gear icon, then Settings
  • Under Calendar Settings, select the tab called Calendars
  • On right side of screen, go to the section named Sharing, and select Edit Settings
  • In Settings, go to the Details section, which will give you the ability to make your calendar public or accessible to a specific person.

Directions to make calendar accessible to specific individuals:

  • Under the section, Person, select Add Person, and modify their administrative settings accordingly.

To Layer your Google Calendar:

  • Under the Other Calendar section, click once on the individual/calendar.
  • Once a colored box is visible next to the individual's name, it means the calendar has layered successfully over yours.
