Can a user see the events of other users within a same workspace ? 

Yes and no, both cases are possible. 

It makes sense for collaborators to share a Calendar and its events when they are working on the same project. However, users can also choose not to display some of their appointments or meetings. 

Case 1 : conditions for a user to be able to see the events of other participants in the shared Calendar of a workspace. 

In order for a user to see the events of other participants : 

  • the privacy status of the event must be "Public" (panel of details). 
  • the user who created the event shall not add himself as a Participant to the event. 





Case 2 : Conditions for a user not to see the events of other participants in a shared Calendar. 


First solution 

  • Create an event, set its privacy status on "Public" and then add yourself as a participant. 




Second solution

  • Create an event, set its privacy status as "Private" and don't invite any user. 

NB : Dans ce cas, même un administrateur ne pourra pas voir l'événement.



To sum-up: 

  • A Public event is visible by all the users who have access to the Calendar. 
  • A Private event is visible only by the creator and the users invited to participate to the event.
