Sometimes people are allowed to see their work calendar on their Android phone or iPhone. But they cannot share the calendar directly with their family to show them when they have work events. For this purpose it would be useful to mirror the work calendar (e.g. the Exchange calendar) into a Google calendar in their Google account so that they can share it with their family. By mirroring only the times of the events but not the contents (title, location, description) confidential data can be removed and only the important data (the time of the events) is shared.
If you have that problem and would like your family to see your work Exchange calendar, then just do the following:
- Create a new empty calendar e.g. “Work” in your Google Calendar account.
- Sync your Android phone/iPhone with your Exchange account and your Google Calendar account so that you can see calendars from both accounts.
- Install SyncCal for Android ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.calengoo.synccal ) or SyncCal for iOS ( https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/synccal/id796482010?mt=8 ) on your phone and use it to copy the Exchange calendar into your new “Work” calendar in your Google account.
- Check if you can see your work events in Google Calendar. If that works fine, you can share the calendar with your family to let them see your work events.
