New G Suite Out Of Office Events

 The calendar sync from Appogee to Google Calendar currently creates normal ' events'.


Google have come out with a new feature that create special events and one of them is called "Out Of Office" (OOO).


These type of events trigger other things in G Suite, for example, in Gmail and Hangouts, it will notify you if the person you are sending a message to is OOO. This will only work if the OOO event type is used.


My suggestion is that Appogee change the event type they use from 'standard' to 'OOO' to utilise these new features.

  • I like this idea, especially as the out of office calendar feature also auto declines calendar events and if you are using Google Voice for G Suite, it can also sends calls to voicemail.

    Not sure if we need this for all leave types though, so is it possible to have the admins say which leave type?

    End users should also be able to specify the OOO auto decline message like they can for OOO in Gmail

  • Good point Louisa. Maybe add another checkbox to the leave types (attached for reference). 


    I like the idea of adding the customisable out of office message. Might be easiest to add this to the section when someone ticks that they want to leave an out of office email?
