New admin control to regulate the display of user availability across Google Workspace products


Google has added a new Admin setting that lets you choose whether or not a user's Google Calendar status is shown across all Google Workspace products. When the option is switched off, end users will no longer be able to see if their colleagues are out of the office in Google Chat or Gmail, for example.

Google expects that this new feature will provide managers more control over what user data is presented across all Google Workspace products.

Admins: This feature will be ON by default and can be disabled at the domain or OU level.
End users: If enabled by your admin, your Calendar status will be visible across Google Workspace products.

Rapid Release and Scheduled Release domains: Extended rollout (potentially longer than 15 days for feature visibility) starting on December 1, 2021

Available to Google Workspace Business Plus, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, and Education Plus
