    Nancy, you can try a couple of different methods of having all four users have the same calendars. But, first a question: Do you want 'everyone' to see not only their own calendar and all events there, but the other three calendars and all events there as well?

    Hi Donnyh15,

     

    Yes it is okay for everyone using the computers to see all the calendars.

    OK. Choice 1 is iCloud: Use this link to see how to configure iCal to use the iCloud Calendar: http://bit.ly/LvVCR2

    You'll have to setup all four accounts on everyone's Macs. If you only want others to access the calendars online, everyone could log in to iCloud with the other's credentials.

    Of course, both of these mean everyone trusts everyone since user IDs and passwords will be shared among all.

    Choice 2: Use Google calendars and setup delegation. Don't have a link for that, yet. You can use Google to search for how to do that. If you do that you everyone won't need to have everyone else's passwords since they'll just be setup as delegates.

    One other option comes to mind: Depending on where your email is hosted, if it's on Exchange or Office 365 you can setup delegates there.

    Last option: Setup a Mac server, and host the calendars there.

     

    Hope this helps!
