You will find the calendar transfer feature in the Calendars module of gPanel.

1. On the left side navigation, hover over Calendars and click Calendars.

If you do not see a menu like the one below, you may be currently set as a “User” within gPanel. If that’s the case, you’ll need to ask your domain administrator for access to gPanel. Especially if you are planning to complete more admin actions in the future.
