New Google Calendar now available for Rebelmail and UNLVMail

One of the benefits of being a G Suite Campus is getting access to new features from Google. Today, we are excited to announce the new Google Calendar is now available for UNLVMail and Rebelmail.

The new Google Calendar features include:

  • New user interface: The user interface has been updated with modern color palette and a cleaner design.

  • Rich formatting and links: You can add rich text formatting, like numbered list and underlined texts, as well as hyperlinks to web pages and Google Docs.

  • Manage multiple calendars side by side: See and manage multiple calendars, including calendars you help manage, using the new Day view.

  • More powerful search: Now when you perform a search, it will look for matching documents, contacts, and events.

To access the new Google Calendar, sign in to Google Calendar and click on the Use new Calendar button. To go back to the old Calendar, click Settings and Back to classic Calendar.

The new Google Calendar will become the default interface on February 19, 2018.

  • Starting today, you will be able to switch to the new Google Calendar.

  • On January 8, the new Google Calendar becomes the default interface. You can still switch back to classic Google Calendar if you choose to.

  • On February 19, the new Google Calendar becomes the permanent interface. You will NOT be able to switch back to classic Google Calendar.

OIT will send out additional reminders during the transition period. For more information about the new Google Calendar, please visit this Google Calendar support page. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the IT Help Desk.
