Sharing a Google calendar
I am trying to share a google calendar with a group of work colleagues without luck.
I have google apps for ed setup.
In the calendar under my user name I have created a new calendar called shared calendar.
In contacts I have created a group of users called sharedusers
in calendar settings under 'Share with specific people' I have entered my group using email@example.com
but in a colleagues calendar my shared calendar does not show. If I go to the 'other calendars' section (still logged in as my colleague) and type in my username (I am the one that created the shared calendar) it says that I do not have access to this calendar.
What am I missing.

I believe that to share a calendar with a group, the group needs to be in Google Groups, not just in regular contacts. This is different to how Google Docs works.

When I shared a calendar before, I ended up doing it via adding each person in and not using a group

I will have a go using google groups. Not a big school, but if they want a school shared calendar, adding each person one by one is not a great way to do it.

I only had it for about 5 or 6 people..

When creating groups of users in groups should it be done from the admin control area or specifically from the groups app area as a user?

I think you specifically need to use the Google Groups interface.

That is a pain as we have disabled the groups app. Odd that a user can create a group in contacts and that group is available everywhere even sites but not the calendar and the user is required to use a discussion app to create a group for the calendar.

The way I set it up was to set the school calendar up as a resource and then users can add that to their calendar by pasting the link. This is done from the admin control panel Settings - Calendar- Resources. The resources is aimed at room booking etc. Also from the settings-org settings you can set that all calendars are available to anyone in the domain so that anyone can add anyone else's calendar.
Don't know if that helps.
