I'm relatively new to Google Calendar / Gmail. I've used it mainly for private mails/events. Since a couple of weeks I also added other emails to my Gmail account like my work email. This is great as I can manage all of my mail conversations from Gmail.

Now I'm wondering about the following. The web didn't get me any conclusive answer. I have multiple calendars on Google Calendar, e.g. Work and Private.

If I add an event to Work and would like to add guest getting invited is it possible to send the invite from my work email added to gmail which is a NON Google address?

I can write emails from my work and sending through Gmail so I was wondering if I could also send invites from a calendar event using it. This would be great as I would prefer clients to see my work email and not my private one.

  • If I understood your question - You can create a Google account from an existing non-Google email (which I think is what you did), and then you can use all Google services, including Gmail, Calendar etc. – arieljannai May 10 '18 at 10:17
  • @arieljannai Not quite. Sorry for not being clear. I've created a normal google account: myname@gmail.com. Afterwards I've added external emails to that account, e.g. my work email. So that I can send now from google work emails where the recipient sees my work email. I'm wondering if I can also sent invites from the google calendar with this work (NON GMAIL) mail address – math May 10 '18 at 10:20
  • Why not test it yourself? You presumably have a work email address. Create a test event and invite your work email address to it and see what happens. – ale May 10 '18 at 12:46
  • @ale I did, and it shows my gmail mail. That's why I'm asking the question. – math May 10 '18 at 12:47
  • Then what you're really asking is if you can change the "from" in a calendar invite rather than if you can invite people who do not have Gmail. Your title is quite ambiguous. – ale May 10 '18 at 12:51
