Picture this. You’re dressed for a fabulous evening of dining and theater when your best friend shows up in jeans holding two tickets to the sporting event of the season! Oh no, somebody forgot to coordinate calendars. Or, you both show up for the sporting event and find out that one of you forgot to buy the tickets! To bad you didn’t have that task on your shared to do list!
With Yahoo! Calendar, you can share calendars and to do lists and always know what’s on in your lives. With the add/edit permission, each of you can add and edit events and items ensuring that you’re keeping the same schedule and lists.
Note: You should only share with folks you really know, not with people you’ve barely met. Even with people you know, be thoughtful before providing them with access to your personal information, especially where you’ll be at specific dates and times. Even if you’ve shared a calendar or to do list, you can change your mind and hide the item from everyone or just a specific person. To learn more about our safety recommendations, click here.

An email is sent to each address in the list. Each recipient can subscribe to your calendar or to do list and view it in their Yahoo! Calendar with either the view-only or edit permission. All of your other calendars and lists remain private unless you decide to share them.
What does an add/edit permission allow?
The editing permission allows a person to add and edit events in the calendar and items in the to do list that anyone sharing the calendar or list will see. The permission doesn’t allow a person to share the calendar or list with others. Only you as the owner can share these.
By the way, your calendar color and name are unique in your Yahoo! Calendar and can’t be changed by those you share the calendar with. Of course, they can change the calendar’s color and give it a different name in their own Yahoo! Calendar. They can also change the list name in their environment.
How do I remove someone from the share list?
Return to the Share Calendar / To Do List page. Select the item you want to remove the person from, then click the Remove box to the right of the person’s email address.
Click the Save button and the calendar or list disappears from the person’s view the next time he or she opens or refreshes Yahoo! Calendar.
