Gsuite Calendar Update
October 19, 2017 at 11:18 AM
Gsuite have introduced a new Google Calendar user interface (UI) for the web. The new look includes some great new features, such as improved room resource information, rich event descriptions, a side-by-side view, and more.
There is two roll out options to help with the transition to the new UI
- Automatic—Automatic is the default option. Starting Nov. 14, 2017 for Rapid Release domains and Nov. 28, 2017 for Scheduled Release domains, we will gradually transition your users to the new UI. The transition will take about 8 weeks (including opt-in and opt-out stages). No action is required on your part for the Automatic option.
- Manual—Alternatively, you can choose to manually control when to move your users to the new UI in the Google Admin console. For example, though we've worked with the developers of the most popular Calendar Chrome extensions to prepare for the new UI, you might have users who depend on an extension that hasn't been updated yet. To choose the Manual option, go to Apps > G Suite > Calendar > New Calendar. Here, you can set by organizational unit when you'd like your users to access the new version of the Calendar UI. If you choose the Manual rollout option, please plan to transition all your users to the new UI before Feb. 28, 2018. Any users who are still accessing the old Calendar UI on Feb. 28, 2018 will be transitioned to the new UI, with no ability to opt out.
We recommend this article for more information on how to transition your organization to the new Calendar UI.
