As an administrator, you can set the default duration for new events in your organization. This default is used as the meeting length when events are created. However, users in your organization can always set a different default for their own calendars and change the duration of their own events.

Note: If users have set their own default duration, the organization default is ignored.

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

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

  2. In the Admin console, go to Menu ""and then"" Appsand thenGoogle Workspaceand thenCalendar.

  4. (Optional) To set the default for specific users in your organization, select the organizational unit or group.

  5. Select a default event duration, then click Save. The recommended event duration is 30 minutes.

Changes can take up to 24 hours but typically happen more quickly. Learn more
