Google Guide Summary
Student Google Guides were on-site at 11 locations on Wednesday. The number of on-site support personnel ranged from one to five depending on the location and unit preference.

Sixty-two (62) faculty and staff were provided assistance by Google Guides. The topics of the support questions that were covered included:
  • Email: 57
  • Calendar: 19
  • Mobile device set-up: 10
  • Collaboration tools: 7

Here are the issues that are still open from this week with one new reported issue.

  • Resource calendars migrated from Meeting Maker and Exchange are not showing events. Calendars migrated from Meeting Maker are not appearing on the resource calendar in Google.  These meetings are however appearing on the people’s calendars.
    • Corrective Action:  Analysis is still underway. The Google technical team is continuing to work with units to collect additional information.
  • Some groups used to share resources have distorted names When some users were creating new events in Google calendar and adding groups, the names are changing into distorted names.  
    • Corrective Action:  Analysis is still underway.  A ticket has been submitted to Google. Based on the response from Google, this is a known issue that the Google Calendar product team is currently working on fixing.  Unfortunately, there is no estimate on how long it will be before the fix is made.  
  • NEW: A small percentage of Exchange user accounts were not properly processed  Accounts were not properly broken up and renamed.
    • Corrective action: An audit of exchange accounts is underway. User accounts which were not properly processed will receive a follow up email.

Closed Issues
  • Incomplete migration of some large calendar events Instructions were provided to these users and/or their administrative assistants to complete a comparison of the old Exchange calendar with the new Google calendar and add any missing events.
  • EECS email did not migrate to user account Remigration was completed on Sunday night.
  • Some users received declined conference rooms invitations The owner of the resource needs to go into the calendar and accept the meeting invites.
