Rename Calendar resources
When you rename a Calendar resource, the update usually shows right away for all your user. However, it might take up to 7 days for the new name to change in your entire domain. Events that take place before you renamed the resource show the old name, and events created afterwards show the new name. Cancelled events will not be renamed, even if they are scheduled in the future.
Change to My Calendar list
The changes you make in Google calendar to your My calendars list don't affect other users. These changes are local and appear only in your calendar view. To revert the local rename, unsubscribe and re-subscribe to the resource calendar.
Options for renaming
You can rename calendar resources using:
- The Directory API
- The Google Admin console

From the Admin console Home page, go to Buildings and resources.
