Step 4: Select calendar to publish and set visibility

In the Publish a calendar section, select the calendar you want to publish from the first dropdown (In the image below, it is currently set to Personal)

From the dropdown under the selected calendar, choose the visibility that you want viewers to be able to see of the calendar. The most limited visibility is Can view when I'm busy, which will only display the blocks of time marked as busy.


Step 5: Publish calendar and distribute link

Once your calendar has the visibility settings you want, click the Publish button. Once published, links to be used for distributing the published calendar will be generated. Copy the desired link, primarily the HTML link for general usage, and use it to direct people to your published calendar.

Note: At any time, if you want to stop allowing access to this calendar through the published link, navigate back to this window and click the Unpublish button. This will remove the links and stop access to anyone who tries to access your published calendar through them.
