Important note about Resource25: Some of Google's documentation for the Calendar app explains how to use the calendar to book rooms and resources. However, Smith uses 25Live (formerly Resource 25) to reserve rooms and other resources in almost all campus locations. However, if your department manages a room that is not included in 25Live, you can create a separate calendar for that room and share it with your department.

What's Not Available

Google Calendar provides most of the features you're used to in GroupWise. However here are some features that aren't available.

  • Offline access --  You must have the Internet to use Google Calendar.  However, mobile access is available.
  • To add an attachment to an event, you must provide a link to it in Google Docs. This means Word, PDF and Excel documents will not attach from your network drive.
  • Custom view options -- There's no separate reading pane or custom views for printing.
  • You can't move any components in the Google Calendar window.
  • Notes are not available.
