ShareURL - Traditional vs. Public ShareURLs

This document explains the difference between a Traditional and a Public ShareURL.


The advantage of using a Public ShareURL is that its standardized format makes it easier to remember -- and potentially allows anyone who knows your email address and uses ShareURL to find your Public ShareURL, once you have activated it. You have the ability to control how much you share with your Public ShareURL, just like you do with a Traditional ShareURL.

  • All ShareURLs start with the following base:

    https://calendar.wisc.edu/share/u/

  • Traditional ShareURLs include the base URL followed by a random string of characters. For example:

    https://calendar.wisc.edu/share/u/0123456789/

  • Public ShareURLs include the base URL followed by an email address. For example:

    https://calendar.wisc.edu/share/u/bbadger@wisc.edu/

Each account can have only one Public ShareURL but you can create as many Traditional ShareURLs as you want, each of which will be identified by a different string of random characters.
