Manage Multiple Calendars in Zoho Calendar
Zoho Calendar provides the option of adding and integrating various calendars under one platform. When you log in to Zoho Calendar, a primary calendar is set-up by default. The primary calendar is listed under My Calendars section. Apart from the primary calendar, you can also create other calendars, subscribe to group calendars and contacts' calendars, synchronize with calendars from other applications and subscribe to holiday calendars.
My Calendars in the left pane refers to your personal calendars. If you want to add a new calendar and manage your events, you can create a calendar under My Calendars. These calendars can be made public or you can share these calendars with a specific group or a person. Click here to learn more about creating and managing personal calendars.
Group calendars can be created for a set of people in Zoho Calendar. All the members in the particular group calendar will be able to view events, add events and send invites to members in the group. You can either create a group calendar from the left pane or you can create a group in Zoho Mail for which a group calendar will be automatically created with the group members. While creating a group in Zoho Mail, there are two types of groups that you can opt for: Personal Groups and Organization Groups. You can also create a Group email address specific to a group and associate it with the group. Learn more
