As part of the migration to M+Google, some users had their Exchange email and voice mail boxes separated. Because of this separation, some voicemail functionality has changed.
If you are using your M+Google Mail to read or listen to voice mail messages, you will notice that the message waiting indicator lamp does not extinguish. This is because M+Google Mail and Exchange voice mail do not communicate with each other.
To extinguish the message waiting light on your desk phone, log into your Exchange voice mail account via OWA at http://exchange.umich.edu/ using your 10-digit phone number and your personal (voice mail) password. Once all messages are not bold, the message waiting light will extinguish.
It is also recommended that you delete the messages (from OWA or through the phone) when done listening, as there is a limit on the mailbox size.

Embedding a Google Form link in a MS Word document results in a shibboleth error.
This can be replicated by doing the following:
1. Create a Word document
2. Paste a Google Forms link into the document
3. Click on the link in the Word document
Users will get the error message on the page https://shibboleth.umich.edu/idp/Authn/UWLogin. There is currently no known workaround for resolving this issue.
NOTE: This error does NOT occur if the link is embedded in an Open Office document or a Google Doc, or if the link is sent out via email or placed on a web page -- so the issue is likely occurring with MS Word.
There are a number of known issues with Google Sync and Apple iOS that are detailed on Google's Mobile Help pages.
One particular issue to note involves deletion behavior: When using Google Sync, if you "delete" a message on your Apple mobile device, the default action is that it will archive the message and not delete it to Trash, as you might expect. To delete the message, you need to select Enable "Delete Email As Trash" for this device in your Google Sync settings. See the complete list of how actions taken on your device affect your Gmail interface when Sync is enabled.
Konica Minolta printer drivers have a bug that crashes Chrome. The Chrome team is looking at it, but the bug is in the printer driver. Potential workaround is to print without using the Print dialog box and only use the print feature within Chrome.
In M+Google Mail, canned responses do not currently work with departmental shared mailboxes. The project team is currently working on this issue and will post a resolution when one is found.
When you invite people to an event via an MCommunity group, and that MCommunity group is a private group of which you are not a member, each invitee receives an email:
Although the email invitation looks like a typical one, clicking the Yes, No, or Maybe buttons results in an error message:
The Add to Calendar button in the invitation DOES work.
The organizer will not get a "tally" in the event of who has responded/who can attend when using a private MCommunity group. To avoid this, the organizer has to manually add invitees.
The information below is copied from Google support:
Internet Explorer has a Compatibility View, a feature that affects how some websites are displayed. If Compatibility View is enabled for google.com, it may cause some Google Mail features to display incorrectly. So, we suggest that you remove google.com from your list of sites that have Compatibility View enabled to ensure that Gmail displays correctly. To do this, follow the steps below:
When you close the Settings window, the page you're on will refresh and display in normal IE8 mode.
If you don't see google.com listed or if these steps don't help you resolve the problem, please make sure your computer has the latest Windows updates.
