Restricting Access to Individual Calendars

When someone with System Administration privileges creates a new calendar, security settings are copied from an exiting calendar, or the system defaults are used. The creator can also specify the "owner" of the calendar - that user will have Adminstration rights in the new calendar.

To change permissions for an existing calendar, follow the Security link from the Settings page for that calendar.

Each calendar has its own security settings; a user can have different permissions in each calendar. One of five levels of security can be assigned to a user for a calendar:

NoneThe user has no access at all
View Only The user can only view events
Add Events The user can view events and add new events
Edit Events The user can view, add new events, and edit existing events
Administer The user can do all of the above, plus change calendar settings

Note that each level of security includes those rights from all less-privileged levels.

The Security page has two groups of controls; one section is for setting the permissions for anonymous users (i.e. anyone who hasn't logged in), and the other has controls for setting permissions for each individual user. A row of buttons corresponding to each security level is displayed for each user.

So, to set permissions for the calendar, simply select the desired permission level for each user, then press the Set Permissions button.

Important Notes:
  • If a user has System Administration privileges, they will always have Administer privileges in every calendar. If you try to change their permission, it will revert to "Administer".
  • You cannot remove your own Administer privileges.
  • If a new user is created, their default permissions for each existing calendar will be the same as that set for anonymous users.
