Who? Anyone who schedules Zoom meetings with Google Calendar What? Reauthorize Zoom’s calendar access When? Sunday, April 25th Why? Will stop working if not reauthorized
Zoom calendar integration, enabled through the Zoom for Gsuite add-on, is the feature that allows you to schedule Zoom meetings directly from your Google Gsuite calendar. Due to coming feature updates, Google will prompt accounts using this integration to reauthorize Zoom’s calendar access on Sunday, April 25th. You will see a prompt to authorize access similar to the one below.
Please note if you do not confirm reauthorization, you will no longer be able to schedule Zoom meetings directly from your calendar.
To learn more about the Zoom integration with Google calendars, see Zoom for GSuite add-on in the Zoom Help Center.
Who? Anyone with a Mac less than 5 years old What? Upgrade to Mac OS Big Sur When? After checking compatibilty with your specialized software & devices Why? Benefit from the latest operating system from Apple
The latest Mac operating system, Big Sur, was released in November 2020. At that time, ITS recommended postponing upgrades so we could test systems such as VPN and PaperCut printing for compatibility. ITS has now completed testing and applied update needed to support Big Sur. We currently recommend all compatible Macs upgrade to the new OS.
If the hardware on your Macbook or iMac is compatible with Big Sur, you will likely have seen an alert in your notification center. To start the upgrade click the alert, or check for updates in the App Store. Then, follow the onscreen prompts. Unfortunately, devices 5 years or older are not eligible for this upgrade.
Please note this upgrade may affect certain 3rd party applications and peripheral devices such as personal printers. While ITS has tested software we support at Guilford, we cannot guarantee other 3rd party applications will continue to work with Big Sur. If you have questions about compatibility, we recommend you check with the vendor to verify product support with the new operating system.
