Question Team Calendar / What's your setup?

Currently, we use Google calendar - and that's the last service I didn't manage to move to a self-hosted solution.
Mostly, because Synology Calendar lacks the ability to flag events as 'private' or 'public'.

Our current setup:
Each team member has his personal calendar, which is shared among other members (read-only).
Only if the personal calendar contains all appointments (personal, business, …), others get the right view about availability, so we need to differentiate between 'public' and 'private' events.
'private' appointments are visible as 'busy' for read-only team members (details are hidden), while people with read-write access see also the appointment details (real title).
Obviously the calendar should sync among devices and be accessible as web-interface.

Is there a way to achieve the same using Synology Calendar?
How do you manage / organize team calendars?

Thanks lot for your input,

Within Synology Calendar you have the option to create a new Calendar (so next to your personal one), and share it with one or multiple users. You can share it with local DSM users, LDAP/Domain users, or even with a LDAP/Domain group. I have a seperate Calendar for my family and gave a group permissions to it. So to give someone access to this calendar I just simply have to add them to that LDAP group.

This separate calendar is also sync-able via CalDAV. The URL can be retreived inside Synology Calendar.

Two calendars is a (cumbersome) work around to separate private / public and still don't fulfil my requirements:
Even if everyone would use two calendars, you can not share calendars without revealing details.

So either you do not share private events at all and others don't see if you are in office or not
or you share everything with all details.

Did I explain my point understandable?
The goal is to let my mates also see if I am busy with a private event.
