UW-Madison G Suite - How will Google Calendar affect Office 365 calendar?

In order to enable Google Plus, UW-Madison G Suite was also required to enable Google Calendar. Although you are free to use Google Calendar, Office 365 is UW-Madison's official enterprise calendaring system. It is recommended that you continue to use Office 365 for scheduling meetings. Information about potential interoperability issues is available below.
