Act as delegate

Manage someone's Calendar

If you use G Suite Sync for Microsoft Outlook (GSSMO), you can open someone else's Calendar from your profile and manage events on their behalf.

Set up calendar delegation

  1. Set up a delegate account. See Set up delegation.
  2. Make sure that the person delegating their account grants you permission to make changes to their Google Calendar. See Delegate your calendar.

Now, you can create events in the other person's Calendar, and accept or decline invitations. If you're working in the person's primary calendar, they appear as the organizer of any invitations you send.

Respond to events without email access

If your manager delegates access to their calendar but not their mail, avoid responding to invitations on their behalf using email notifications. Doing so:

  • Creates the event on your own Calendar, not your manager's.
  • Sends your manager an email accepting or denying the invitation, not the event organizer (if the invite came from someone outside G Suite).

To respond to invitations on behalf of your manager, do so from the calendar, instead.
