We’ve previously covered how to show your live Google Calendar in Outlook, but what if you just want to share a static snapshot of your calendar with someone? There’s a way to do that too.

Sharing a static snapshot can be useful if you want to share your Google Calendar with a colleague—or with your own work calendar so you can see it—but your company policies don’t allow you to synchronize with a live, non-corporate calendar. It’s also useful if you’re going to be somewhere with intermittent Wi-Fi for a while and you want to see your calendar even when you’re offline.

To share a static snapshot, you need to export your calendar and import it into another calendar program.
