Use an Exchange calendar with Google Workspace

If your users want to continue using their Exchange calendar, they can manage their meetings and events in Exchange using Calendar Interop. Calendar Interop syncs the free/busy status of users in Google Calendar and Exchange so everyone can view each other's availability information. Google Calendar users can also book Exchange calendar resources, such as meeting rooms, when they schedule a meeting.

For details, go to About Calendar Interop.

Get email in 2 inboxes using dual delivery

With dual delivery, users receive their email in 2 inboxes. For example, you could set up dual delivery to deliver mail to an Exchange inbox and a Gmail inbox. Dual delivery can help you try out Gmail with your organization before moving all users and data to Google Workspace.

For details, go to Email routing and delivery options for Google Workspace.

Move all users and data to Google Workspace

If you're interested in permanently moving to Google Workspace, you can use one of our migration products to transfer your email, calendar, and contact data. For details, go to Migrate your organization’s data to Google Workspace or the Google Workspace migration product matrix.
