Proton Calendar: Share events/invite people to events
I have started playing around with Proton Calendar in beta. It looks nice. I cannot see a way to share events to other people or invite them to an event (internally to other ProtonCal users or externally to people using other calendar services). Is this feature available? If not, is it in development?

As the CTO of our organization I have chosen to use Protonmail for our organization. I am getting a lot of pushback from our team because of the lack of a calendar sharing feature. The organization will be leaving protonmail for something else unless we get this feature.
Will not be using Proton Calendar until share/invite capability is added. This should be basic and included in Beta.
Agreed. Until this feature is implemented its really hard to use the calendar for much beyond a personal day-timer/reminder. I totally get this product is in Beta but well, its been in Beta for over a year and needs to be pushed along with the Proton Mail Beta to a fully functional production rollout sooner then later.
In order to use Proton Calendar instead of gmail, and bring my family to using it as well, I would need two features:
- Ability to share calendars between two Proton Calendar users
- Ability to display the calendar in a weekly view
The Calendar presents nicely and is easy to use but add my vote to sharing, mobile and push/email notifications and not just the desktop. No one is always at a desk anymore. I really need to leave Gmail but I am used to what I now consider basic convenience features.
Hello @ProtonMail Product Team...Any chance when this feature will be enabled or rolled-out? Can we get visibility on this timeline? I'd really like to be able to switch from Google Calendar but as several people have pointed out, I really need to schedule events with attendees that can also RSVP... Thanks!
Actually I was sure that sharing a calendar is a basic feature for every calendar tool, thats why I decided to upgrade paying 48€ a year. Now I see that it is missing this basic capability. I can just hope, you guys are going to get this feature quickly developed.
I've been using google for about 10 years before I decided to move on to protonmail, pls don't make me get back to the spying google.

+1 Sharing a calendar with family is essential. Recently moved from Google to Proton Visionary and this is an absolute requirement. I need to be able to share my caneldar with family, who are also on proton.

I was excited to find a Protonmail calendar, then extremely disappointed to find I couldn't use it to arrange meetings

If we could have event and calendar sharing, that would ultimately allow me to easily migrate off Google Calendar.

Sharing calendars is something I am very much looking forward to. I'm stuck using Google's calendar right now and am in a hurry to get off their platform. Please keep up that great work on ALL your new features! I'm waiting (mostly) patiently. :-)
LOL whut... i ended up here because i was googling how to send calender invites from protonmail.
How can you make a calender system without being able to send calender invites?
I love protonmail, but seriously, didn't you think this feature was a bit on the "need to have" and not "nice to have" side of things???

Uh - yeah - hard to believe a calendar was released w/o this feature...
It is a must have -- manage everything with invites (sent and received).
I'm just waiting for this feature to complete my migration from gmail
I can accept a calendar invitation from Google on the Web and it adds nicely to the calendar app on the phone, but i cannot accept the invitation directly on the mail app on the phone
The ability to invite and share events is critical. Not having that functionality is a non-starter. Also too- the ability to integrate with MailBird would be of great value.
A request that is the same or a variation on a theme -- is there a way to develop a shared Proton Mail calendar? i.e. for work colleagues on a common project, or family members that want to keep track of events between different family members on a common calendar. I appreciate that keeping things secure is best done within the protonmail infrastructure, so I guess this is a question of whether or not multiple protonmail users can create and have access to a common calendar.
Tutanota seems to have this calendar function now
I don't have anything new to add...but am also waiting to migrate to PM until the calendar is fully functional.
The calendar feature is useless without the ability to invite non-PM accounts, or accept an invitation from non-PM accounts.
