Set up Calendar Interop

Verify the user availability setup

Next, verify you set up user availability correctly.

Verify your availability setup

  1. Sign in to a Google Workspace account, create a Google Calendar event, and enter the email address of a Microsoft Exchange user to invite them. For details go to Invite people to your Calendar event.

    The Exchange user's availability status should be visible.

  2. If you can't view their availability status, check the activity and status of your users in the Calendar audit log. For details, go to Check the Calendar audit log (below).
  3. If there are no errors in your Calendar audit log, sign in to a user Exchange account, create a calendar event, and enter the email address of a Google Calendar user to invite them.
  4. If you can't view the Calendar user's availability, try the Calendar Interop tools to resolve any issues.

Use the log and tools

Check the Calendar audit log

Once your users start using Calendar Interop, you can check the activity and status of your users in the Calendar audit log.

If you encounter errors in the Calendar audit log, go to Calendar Interop error messages for troubleshooting information.

Use the Calendar Interop tools
  1. Open Calendar Interop Tools.
  2. In the User availability lookup tester section, enter the email address of a user in your organization, using one of the following options:
    • To verify whether an Exchange user can query the availability status of a Google Calendar user, enter the email address of a Google Workspace user.
    • To verify whether a Google Calendar user can query the availability status of an Exchange user, enter the email address of an Exchange user.
  3. Click Perform test.

The tool issues an availability query for the user and includes a request and response. If the request was unsuccessful, you’ll get an error summary.
