G Suite Calendar and Drive changes coming soon

The Google Calendar view that you see in your web browser will be changing. Some private accounts may have already seen this. Most functions are the same, but there are new functions and a cleaner look. This change is rolling out from Google in stages and will be seen for our organization sometime after November 28th, but before February 28, 2018. You can learn about the new Calendar features at https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/7541906

Users of Drive for Mac/PC may have seen messages notifying them that Drive for Mac/PC is going away. Support for that tool will end on December 11th and it will shut down completely on March 12th, 2018. This only affects the local PC/Mac desktop application, not the web based Drive App. A new tool named Drive File Stream will replace the desktop Drive applications for Mac/PC. Further details on installing and using Drive File Stream will be communicated via your local IT support.

Announcement Timing: 
November 20, 2017 to November 27, 2017
