About Google Calendar Connector for IBM Notes
Google Calendar Connector for IBM® Notes® (GCCIN) allows users to use IBM Notes Calendar with Google Calendar. It is ideal for users migrating to G Suite from IBM Notes who want to retain free/busy visibility across both systems during the migration period. Free/busy look-up is supported in both directions.
For detail on implementing and troubleshooting GCCIN, see the Installation and Administration Guide.
Overview of GCCIN
The Google-to-Notes lookup is made in real time using a web service provided as part of your G Suite domain.
You add an attendee to a meeting and the web-service consumer on the Google servers makes a call to the Domino service provider included as part of GCCIN. The connector then accesses the Notes busy-time store and returns the information to Google calendar for display in the scheduler dialog.

The Notes-to-Google lookup is made against the Notes busy-time store. An agent on the GCCIN server polls the Google calendars every hour to extract meeting details, and updates the Notes systems with the Google data.
