Starting on October 31, when you log in to UW-Madison Google Apps, you will have the option to set up a Google Plus profile. In order to get the full benefits of Google Plus, UW-Madison also needed to enable Google Calendar.

Feel free to use Google Calendar, but please keep in mind that the official enterprise calendaring systems for UW-Madison are WiscCal and Office 365. It is recommended that you continue to use WiscCal or Office 365 for scheduling meetings. Information about how Google Calendar interacts with WiscCal and Office 365 is available here.

Confused about the distinction between your personal Google account and UW-Madison Google Apps? One of the big differences is that your UW-Madison Google Apps account provides more protection in regard to your intellectual property. Additional differences between the two types of accounts can be found at here.
