Calendar events, Calendar resources, and Calendar resource policies.

In Calendars,  the admin can add and remove any additional owners to any existing calendar owned by users of your domain.

Calendar permissions

Auditing different Google Calendar Resources

  • “Free/Busy Reader only” – Read access to free/busy information.
  • “Reader” – Read access to the calendar. Private events will appear to users with reader access, but event details will be hidden.
  • “Writer” – Read and write access to the calendar. Private events will appear to users with write access, and event details will be visible.
  • “Owner” – Ownership of the calendar. This role has all of the permissions of the writer’s role with the additional ability to see and manipulate ACLs.

They can be managed with Calendar permissions management allowing the admin to manipulate the users of the Calendar.
