Sharing a calendar
I would have 3 proposals related to the sharing of the agenda:
- Allow to share one of my calendars with another ProtonMail user present in my contacts.
- Allow to invite another ProtonMail user present in my contacts to participate to an event.
- Allow a specific ProtonMail user in my contacts to edit one of my calendars.
This is very useful for example when your spouse is not available to know if she will be available at a specific date and to define a date with someone while inviting her to this event.
This can also be valid for employees in the company

Sharing a calendar is available on Web.
On next iterations we would like to enable the editing permission on mobile apps and add in the future to only share the "busy" information

Similar situation here: My family is still on Google, and I'm on Proton. So co-editing my calendars or those of my family is a requirement. As of now, I would have to hop between Google and Proton apps :-/
In my opinion this opens to a lot of opportunities.
Having a calendar link which opens a GUI of this specific calendar to whoever you share the link to (protonmail user or not) would be amazing !
You could be able to configure if you want to show the events or just if you're busy or not and have it password protected :)
I strongly agree that this feature would really be beneficial to be able to share calendars within couples, groups, friends, workgroups, etc. I hope protonmail considers adding it soon between proton users.

I agree with everything you said, Mickey. The only thing I will add, is that while I have fully migrated to ProtonMail and ProtonCalendar, my wife still uses Google Calendar and Gmail, and I suspect that will be the case for many ProtonCalendar users who need to share a calendar with their partners/spouses/loved ones. Or Outlook 365, etc. So please consider this as you further flesh out the shared calendar features. While it is an understandable hope, I don't think it is a reasonable expectation that all of our respective loved ones will switch to Proton simply because we have.

My Proton Calendar will remain entirely unused until full sharing (including write access) is implemented.
I fully support iterative development, and I appreciate that there is a secure calendar option for those who use their calendar solo, but I personally will have to wait until I can share a calendar with my wife to be able to use this.
Agreed. My wife & I share a calendar, which is essential.
It looks like similar suggestions have been made since July 2021 or earlier. This is a critical core feature for any family or couple looking to use Proton Calendar. I cannot start using this product or even consider a paid plan until it is possible to either create a jointly managed calendar, or at least allow full edit access to my personal calendar to another Proton user.
So, only 3rd item has not been implemented yet (edit access for an entire calendar). And yeah, it is critical for successful transitioning from Google Calendar.

Agree, critical facility. When I signed up to Protonmail I kind of took this for granted. Protonmail is fine apart from this.

Agreed, this is a must. I would not call this "sharing" as that describes simply allowing others to view your calendar. What I want is to be able to collaborate with others on a calendar where I, as the admin, can set what my users can do. For example I want to control my users' ability to View, Edit, Create, Delete, Share, etc. calendar events and tasks. It will take this for us to leave our current calendar.
For me and my family is this feature a must have.
This is a must! My calendar is practically useless unless I can share it with my wife and kids...
This is a must. A calendar without sharing is quite useless, especially for multi-user accounts.
Just found out that there is an option to subscribe to extern calendars (proton too) when you change language setting to english. (Iḿ using a dutch version). Follow-up question is: how fast do both calendars sync?
Sharing proton calendars between partners is a must to leave google etc
please make this available as soon as possible. it is something we really are in need of.
This is absolutely crucial
We really need the ability to share edit access with other protonmail users. I won't be able to leave google until it's available! Thanks!
Make it be possible to share a ProtonCalendar with another ProtonMail subscriber. For instance having a joint calendar between me and my wife.
I must say that this is something that I am eagerly awaiting. I have been attempting to transition to Proton Calendar, and I am finding it very frustrating that there is no way to share it with another ProtonMail user.
