Add a calendar resource

If you have the legacy free edition of Google Apps, upgrade to G Suite to get this feature.

In addition to scheduling events in Google Calendar, G Suite users in your organization can book other resources that people share. The most common resource is a meeting room. Other resources might include projectors, company cars, guest offices, recreation equipment, or anything else people might schedule a time to use.

  5. Enter the resource name, type, and description.

Step 2: Manage and share the resource

After you add a resource, you should:

  1. Add the resource to your own My Calendars list so you can manage it.
  2. Share the resource with your users so they see it in their calendars.
  3. Test scheduling your resource. It can take up to 24 hours before users can schedule a new resource.
