Can view titles and locations. Those sharing your calendar with this permission level will see availability and the subject and meeting location.
Can view all details. Those sharing your calendar with this permission level will see all details of your appointments.
If you receive this error message “This calendar can’t be shared” it is because of one of the following reasons:
- The email address you’re trying to share the calendar is invalid.
- The email address is a Microsoft 365 Group
- The email belongs to an external user who isn’t part of your organization
After you have followed all these steps, the person that you’re sharing the calendar with is going to receive an email to accept the calendar share. After this, your calendar is now shared with the person you are trying to share with.
If you like it, share with your friends and family.
