When your calendar is included, or set to show in other calendars, you can control whether each event you add will display in those other calendars or show another message. You set the default for that option in the Edit Form section.
Add to Multiple Calendars
When a new event is entered, it is possible to have that event added to multiple calendars. Your ability to add to multiple calendars is controlled by your security rights to those calendars.
