Allow Free/Busy resource booking

When you create a new calendar resource in the Admin console, and secondary calendar sharing is enabled (as free/busy or see all details), users in your domain can schedule meetings in those resources by default. However, as an administrator you can change this default setting for your domain, and choose whether to allow users to book resources that are shared as free/busy.

With this setting enabled you can hide sensitive event information from users in your domain without preventing them from booking those resources.

Note: This default setting change will only apply to new Google Cloud domains that signed-up after January 12, 2016. For all pre-existing domains, this setting is set to off. Administrators can always change this setting manually if needed.

Administrators can follow these steps to modify this default behavior:

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console dashboard, go to Appsand thenG Suiteand thenCalendar.
  3. Select General settings.
  4. Go to Resource booking permissions and check the box: Allow users to book resources that are shared as See only free/busy.

Super administrators can book all resources in the domain, regardless of whether this setting is set to ON or OFF.
