Transfer Google calendar ownership


I just enabled Calendar for our Google Apps account.  I have been using a Google Calendar account, tied to my gmail address.  Since I only check mail though the Google Apps interface, I wanted to move all of my calendars to the Google Apps domain.


I found a pretty easy way to do this:


  1. In the gmail account, share each calendar with the email address that you want to use, with "Make changes AND manage sharing" permission.

  2. Now in the account in Google Apps, delete the share with the gmail account.  (This is not strictly necessary, but I didn't want to leave these calendars in the gmail account.)


Unfortunately, you have to manually subscribe to all of the "Other Calendars" that are in the gmail account.
