I currently work at a University and we have a request to add our campus holidays and academic calendar to everyone's individual calendars. This way the holidays will show up by default on everyone's calendar. We also would like these events NOT to block off that day and prevent scheduling.

Is this possible? Would a shared calendar be a better solution than importing events? (If it is possible, how would one go about doing this task.)

I can provide more information if this was unclear. Thank you in advance for any help!
