|Visibility of Events||Setting Description|
Anyone who has access to view event details on your calendar can see the name and time for your event from Gmail. Only people who have access to make changes to your events can see other details from your email, such as confirmation numbers, flight status, or phone numbers.
Note: If you share your calendar publicly, choosing this option also makes your event from Gmail visible publicly
Only people who have access to make changes to your calendar can see your event details. Anyone else who can view your calendar but can't make changes sees the event as Busy.
