Google Calendar - Allowing Invitation Notifications

| | Comments (0)

Accounts are not automatically set to allow invitations sent via Google Calendar when someone is creating a meeting and inviting guests. Because this is the best way currently to know a meeting has been put on one's calendar, all GPS Alliance staff should configure their Google Calendar settings to allow incoming calendar invitations.

First, open your calendar and choose "Calendar Settings" in the upper right corner of your calendar interface under "Settings".

Next, click into the "Calendars" tab and choose the main calendar for your account. This will be your x.500 (or whatever you renamed it to be), but should be the main personal calendar associated with the account into which your are logged.

Finally, choose the "Notifications" tab and use the check boxes in the lower right to set the notifications you will receive. All four options should be checked.

Acceptable Use of Information Technology Resources

Guidance For Using Information Technology Resources

The UofM's official agreement for software purchased through OIT's software programs can be found at OIT Software License Installation and Termination Agreement

Software Maker Policies/Agreements with UofM:

Of Note: Adobe does allow one copy of their product to be installed on a personal/home computer if it has been purchased with UofM Departmental funds and installed on a work computer. Here is the policy verbage -

  • 2.5 Portable or Home Computer Use. Subject to the important restrictions set forth in Section 2.6, the primary user of the Computer on which the Software is installed under Section 2.2 ("Primary User") may install a second copy of the Software for his or her exclusive use on either a portable Computer or a Computer located at his or her home, provided that the Software on the portable or home Computer is not used at the same time as the Software on the primary Computer.

While this does not specifically state whether or not the computer at home can be one that is not purchased by university funds and maintained according to UofM standards, I have been given the okay by OIT software manager Justin Halverson
