Now you have to enter the name of the other person to share it with him/her and choose the permissions:

Finished

That's all. Afterward you should see the other's calendar and events in a different color in your own calendar in the "Other calendars" list (below "My calendars"). There you can also choose a color for this calendar by clicking the button with the triangle to the right of the calendar's name. So you don't have to use the same color that the other person uses for his/her calendar.

By clicking a calendar's name under "My calendars" or "Other calendars", you can toggle it between "visible" and "invisible" e.g. if you don't want to see the other's calendar all the time. This visibility setting is also used/downloaded by CalenGoo during the sync, please see Visibility/Download.

Using CalenGoo

When using CalenGoo using the direct sync method, it will automatically detect and use all your personal and shared calendars (except Google Sports calendars) the next time you sync with the "Sync" menu entry. And it will use the colors you have configured in Google Calendar, so there is nothing special necessary to use these shared calendars with CalenGoo.

If you are syncing via Android, please tap "Settings", "Visibility/Download" in CalenGoo, press the menu button and choose "Refresh Android Calendars" to let Android recognize the new shared calendars. Afterward you should see them in the calendar view and under "Settings", "Visibility/Download".
