Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I sync my Google Apps Calendar with Outlook?
    Yes, you can sync your new Google Calendar with Outlook, and other 3rd party calendar programs as well. Click here for more info on sync your Google Apps services.
  2. Can I invite a mailing list from the Grayson directory to a meeting?
    No. If you invite a mailing list, the attendees won't see the meeting on their calendars. Therefore you must add each attendee individually to your invitation. Or, you can create your own "contact groups" using your Google Apps contacts picker, as follows:
    • In your invitation, under Add Guests , click Choose from contacts .
    • In the contacts picker that appears, start typing the name of one of the employees you want to invite.
    • When the name appears, click it to add it to the list below.
    • Repeat these steps for each employee you want to invite.
    • Then select Save As Group to create a contacts group in your personal contacts.
    • Enter a name for the group, and then click OK .
    • Then click Done to invite the group to your meeting.

      Now you can invite the same group to any meetings you schedule in the future, by clicking Choose from contacts and selecting the group in the drop-down list in the contacts picker and selecting Select all .
    For information about using Google Groups for meeting invitations, see: About Google Groups .
  3. Can I invite meeting attendees who are outside of Grayson?
    Yes, you can send meeting invitations to any email address.
  4. If someone outside of Grayson sends me an invitation from another type of calendar, can I accept the invitation on my Google calendar?
    Yes, in most cases, you can. If possible, Google Calendar inserts an Add to Calendar link in the invitation. Simply click the link, and the invitation is added to your Google calendar. Otherwise, if the invitation is in the standard .ics format (such as Microsoft Outlook invitations), you can download the .ics file and upload it to Google Calendar.
