Act as delegate in G Suite for Outlook

Act as delegate: access Calendar

When you use G Suite Sync for Microsoft® Outlook® (GSSMO) to add an account to your Outlook profile for mail delegation, and if that person grants you permission to make changes to their Google calendar, you can open the calendar from your profile and manage events on the owner's behalf.

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.

Responding to calendar events without email access

If your manager delegates access to their calendar but not their mail, avoid responding to invitations on their behalf via 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.
