Bigelow Travel

Using the Bigelow Travel Calendar

Using the Travel Calendar is a respectful way to let your coworkers know that you will be unavailable for business or meetings. Thank you in advance for using this tool!

  1. To view the Travel Calendar:
    1. Locate the “Add a coworker’s calendar” in the bottom section of the left sidebar in Google Calendar
    2. Enter into the box
  2. To add your travel dates to the Travel Calendar:
    1. Create an event on YOUR OWN calendar
    2. Click "Add guests" and add to the event
    3. If prompted, click “Send Invitation”
  3. Delete or update your travel:
    1. Delete or update the event on your own calendar
    2. If prompted, click “Update Guests”
  4. Other hints:
    • Label the event with your last name, e.g. "Smith out" instead of just "out" so that everyone can easily see WHO is out on a given day
    • No need to invite any other Bigelow email groups (i.e. staff, events) to your travel
    • Use the "all day" label if you will be gone for the full day or multiple days (rather than 8:00-4:30) to help keep the calendar uncluttered, or you can use hours if you will be out for only part of the day
    • You can add details like, "vacation", "at ASLO conference", or "text my mobile 207-123-4567 if you need me" if you would like, as appropriate
