Add or Remove Members from Calendar Editor Groups

The UW Event Calendar is now integrated with the UW Groups service. What this means is that you can give permission to people you choose to edit your departmental calendar, simply by adding or removing their NetIDs from groups that you manage through the UW Groups service. Learn about the UW Groups service

Note: Any member of an editor group can add or remove other members to or from the same editor group.

Add a new member to your calendar editor group:

  1. StepsActions
  2. Go to http://groups.uw.edu.
  3. Near the top of the page, click My Groups. Locate the editor group you want to update.
  4. On the next page, click the blue Membership link.
  5. In the green Add members field, enter the UW NetID of the new member.
  6. In the Direct Membership list, verify that the UW NetID has been added. Allow up to 30 minutes before the new editor can access the UW Event Calendar.

How do I close an account?

If a calendar editor leaves the UW or your department, please contact help@uw.edu to have the account closed. In your message, provide the following:

  • Name of editor
  • Personal UW NetID*

*Note: Use of shared UW NetIDs for calendar administration is strongly discouraged. Because shared UW NetIDs are used by multiple people, the IDs provide no way of tracing calendar activity to a particular person, which may be warranted in case of misuse.
