Synchronising Google calendar entries to the Office 365 calendar

Tabs

Detailed help

The Google calendar is not a service supported by the university. If you are using Google calendar you can - at your own risk - synchronise the Google calendar events to your Office 365 calendar according to the following instructions.

 The synchronisation of all the properties of Google calendar is not guaranteed. Changes made in the Google calendar are updated to Office 365. The synchronisation does not work in the other direction. You should note that the information is updated more slowly than between Office 365 calendar and the phone, for example.
