Sharing a Calendar Event in Canvas

Hello all,

I had a question about group Calendars in Canvas.  Currently we are thinking about using groups in Canvas to inform our functional leaders of any updates to our schedules, processes, etc. as we approach a term start.   However, as far as I can tell, there is no way to share a group calendar event to another group inside of Canvas.  So far this looks like the event is native to that group/calendar only.

Is there a way to share events?  Or, does anyone know of a better way to approach this?  I would like to avoid adding users to our specific group as there are resources and materials that are not relevant to anyone outside of our group posted there, and if at all possible, I would like to avoid managing 2 different calendars, but at this point I am stuck. 

Thanks for the help.

jschaffer, unfortunately I don't know of a way to share between group calendars so yes, it seems like you would need to keep 2 separate calendars. If you come up with a work around or a way to do this, please let us know!
