Get started with Outlook Calendar

With Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook®, you can manage all your Google Apps calendars from Outlook, including your primary calendar, calendars you create, and calendars other people have shared. Most things in Outlook Calendar work just as you're used to, but there are some differences you should be aware of.

Here's how we suggest you get started...

  1. See what's supported in Outlook Calendar
    Check out this overview of the Outlook features available when using Google Apps Sync.
  2. View and manage your calendars
    Learn how to manage which of your Google Apps calendars are available in Outlook.
  3. Follow best practices for using Outlook
    Review features that Google Apps Sync adds to Outlook, or that work differently.
  4. Set up sharing and delegation
    Share your calendars with other Google Apps users, and add calendars to Outlook that others have shared with you.
  5. See what's not supported
    See which Outlook features aren't available with Google Apps Sync or that don't work as you might be used to.
  6. Work with events
    Review some miscellaneous (and mostly minor) differences in Outlook, when sending invitations, updating events, working with recurring events, or changing time zones.

Access your calendars from Google Calendar on the web, too! (This is handy when you're away from Outlook). Google Apps Sync can synchronize all your events in Outlook with your Google Apps account in the cloud, so you can manage your schedule from either interface. Synchronization occurs every 10 minutes, as well as every time you create an event or receive an invitation. Learn more.
