Hi,
I'd like to share Mac calendars between 5-6 people on my workgroup. Everyone is usning a mac.
Do you know if iCloud is a viable solution?

I know we can do it with BusyCal but it costs 50€ each,
iCloud would cost only MacOs updates.

Thanks

Giuseppe

I share one with my wife and we both update it and iCloud syncs it very nicely between 6 devices. I also share another calendar as public for thoses not using iCloud but that one is read only. However, not sure if there is limit on how many people can have update a single calendar.

Hi d21mike,
thanks for reply,
do you and your wife use different apple ID's?
When you speak about devices you mean also 2 Macbooks/imacs?

Yes. We each have our own iCloud Accounts (me.com apple IDs) for Mail, Contacts, Calendar etc. We have a third account for iTunes purchases that we share.
