Calendar

Google Calendar, like Oracle Calendar, will be available to every member of the community, but it will be up to each user to decide whether or not to take advantage of it. If you are already using Oracle Calendar, we suggest you switch to Google Calendar at the same time as the rest of your department in order to minimize disruption of department calendaring. Get ready for the migration by following the pre-migration checklist

Ready to start using Google Calendar? Read our Calendar documentation.

  • April - May: migration of early adopter departments
  • May - August: drop-in Google Calendar workshops
  • June: all departments migrate from Oracle to Google Calendar
  • June 30: transition to Google Calendar complete
  • July 1: Oracle Calendar will no longer accept meetings
