G Suite – Transferring Calendar Events (IT Training Tip)

In G Suite Calendar, you may be responsible for the creationcoordination, and management of a calendar Event, that you may not be a participant or scheduling on behalf of someone else. In G Suite Calendar, if you can manage changes to Events on another individuals calendar, this task can easily be done, but what if you don’t have access to that individual’s calendar? With G Suite Calendar, you can create an Event on your primary calendar or on any secondary calendar, and then transfer the ownership of that Event to another individual.
