Managing Group Calendars & Resource Calendars

U-M Google Group Calendars

Overview

Group calendars -- for example, a unit vacation calendar -- are created and shared by the owner as secondary calendars. 

Best Practice

We recommend that group calendars be created off of Shared accounts instead of individual accounts because calendars owned by an individual's account would be deleted when that person is no longer affiliated with the university.

Read about MCommunity Group Synchronization to U-M Google if applicable.

Instructions

There is no set naming standard for these resources but we advise the owners to follow the same naming scheme established for Google resources.

U-M Google Departmental Resources 

Overview

U-M Google resources are physical resources -- for example, conference rooms or loaner laptops -- that can be booked using the “Rooms, etc.” area in the calendar invite. 

Create a U-M Google Resource

To create an U-M Google resource send a request to 4HELP@umich.edu. This request will be handled by the Collaboration Team, as will any request to make changes to the resource calendar. Units can add other managing groups to their Resource calendar. 

Resource Naming Scheme

Rooms:

Building-RoomNumber-other if needed
ex. ArborLakes-Bldg3-1330

Departmental Resources:

Dept.Prefix-Specifics (Specifics are often in form of Building-ResourceName-number)
ex. ITS-AL-Projector-1
