By following the instructions on Google Calendar to share it, when a non-gmail user gets the invite they are asked for an account and pw. The consequence of that requirement is either:
a) they have to create a new gmail account (who wants ANOTHER email account to keep track of?)
b) I have to give them my user name and pw (which gives them access to my email and everything on my gmail account)
To simply share a calendar, neither of those two requirements seem ideal.
I have shared with other non-gmail users and they never reported an issue. Maybe they created a gmail account and never mentioned it.
Is there a standard way to share an gmail calendar without either a) or b) ?
