Google Calendar invites using alternate email addresses

Today I had a wonderful client of mine ask if it was possible to receive Google Calendar invitations that were sent to her other email account, such as a forwarder or other email provider.

We quickly resolved this by using 3 easy steps:

  1. For your alternate email address(es), create a Google account
  2. Go into the sharing settings and give your primary account full management rights (the account you want all the events to show up in)
  3. Make the ‘Automatically add invitations to my calendar’ setting “yes”

Your Google Calendar will now accept invitations being sent to your added email.

Google Drive shares will also be accepted that are sent to the alternate email address.

Easy! Awesome!
