Here's how: Create or open the event in Google Calendar. In Event Details, click the paper clip icon to open Google Drive. Scroll through the list of documents until you find the one you want, or use the search field to locate it. Click the file once to highlight it. Press Select. Make any other edits necessary (for example, add attendees) and click Save to return to the Calendar view. To open the doc you attached in Calendar, click the event entry. Click the file you attached in the window that opens. The other meeting attendees can do the same. Grant Viewing or Editing Privileges to Attendees While you have the attachment open in Google Docs, click Share in the upper right corner of the screen. Then, select the appropriate level of privileges for each viewer: view only, comment, or edit.
