When this is enabled, users will be able to view their calendar and events “from four weeks prior or any time in the future by week, day, or month.”
Google says that this feature will be turned on by default, however, it can be disabled on the domain by admins. In case the feature is left on by the admin, the feature will be off for the end-user by default and will come with the option to enable it on a per device basis.
The feature is in the process of gradual rollout starting January 20 and will take up to 15 days for it to be visible under admin control. For the end-user, the gradual rollout of the device is set to take place starting January 25.
On its support page, Google explains that when a user is offline and accessing Google Calendar, they won’t be able to create or edit events, email guests or access tasks or reminders.
Another interesting thing that Google mentions is that if a user clears their computer’s cached images and files, it will also clear offline support for Google Calendar. This means that they will have to turn on Google Calendar offline again to use Calendar offline.
On its blog, Google said that the feature will be available to Google Workspace Essentials, Business Starter, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard, and Enterprise Plus, as well as G Suite Basic, Business, Education, Enterprise for Education, and Nonprofits customers.
