I want to embed a Google calendar in my organization's intranet site. Google provides three options for sharing the calendar:
- Make it visible to anyone in the organization
- Make it visible only to certain people
- Make it fully public
In theory option 1 would be good, except that I don't want people to have to be logged in with the right Google account in order to see the embedded calendar. In fact I have 3 Google accounts, and the one for my organization is not the default one in my browser and therefore a calendar that is only visible to people in the organization actually will not display for me and there is no way to make it display.
So it looks like my only choice is to make the calendar public, but then it warns
"Making your calendar public will make all events visible to the world, including via Google search. Are you sure?"
Now my question is, will it really be visible to the world? How would people find it? I have never found calendar results in a Google search and if I try to find public Google calendars from within the Google Calendar web app all I can find is holidays and phases of the moon.
So I think that the calendar would only be discoverable via the embedded version on our intranet or if anyone shares the link, but since the intranet is private I assume that nobody outside the organization would actually find it. Is that true?
