It is also possible to create custom calendars in Proton Calendar. This is useful for organizing your own time (for example, having separate calendars for home and work), and for creating calendars that you wish to share with different groups of people.

If you are using our Free plan, you can create one additional calendar. If you subscribe to any of our paid plans, you can create up to 20 calendars. 

Once a calendar is created or imported into Proton Calendar, you can edit, delete, or export it as an iCalendar(new window) (ICS) file that can be imported into most third-party calendar apps and services.
