Calendar Events Generated From Gmail

Hello,

You might have noticed that sometimes Google Calendar automatically adds events triggered by your Gmail. The default behavior for Google is to scan incoming mail for events that it thinks can be added your calendar. If you search your mail for <EVENT TITLE>, you will find the email that triggered the creation of the Calendar event. You may need to include Trash in your search, if you've deleted it.

If this hasn’t yet happened to you, the first time an event gets added to your calendar automatically, you will get a notification from Google alerting you and giving instructions for turning off the feature. It will have a subject line similar to this:

Subject: An event from Gmail has been added to your Google Calendar

It is possible that the first time this happened it was something you wanted to go on the calendar and did not turn the feature off. You can turn this feature off at any time. However, if you do, all past events added from Gmail will be removed from your calendar. If you turn this setting back on, only events in the future will be added. Here is how you can turn this feature off:

Open Google Calendar.
In the top right, click Settings (gear icon) and then select Settings.
Navigate to Events from Gmail and deselect Add automatically.
Navigate to the top or bottom of the page and click Save.

Tip: Did you know? You can let someone else manage your event.

Google Talk Transitioning to Hangouts

Google announced that on June 26, 2017 Google Talk will be transitioned to Google Hangouts. Accounts on the UMICH domain that have Talk installed on one or more devices will be affected by this change. The U-M Google Team will send an email to those affected later this week with the following information:

What will happen if you are affected?
You will get an invitation to switch to Hangouts. After June 26, you will be automatically transitioned to Hangouts. You can then go to Options and check the Use dense roster box to remove avatars and create an experience more like Google Talk.
Using Hangouts, you can communicate with other people using Hangouts, but not other chat clients.
The legacy Google Talk Android app was replaced in 2013 and will stop functioning after June 26. You are encouraged to install Hangouts now.

For reference, you can review the differences between Hangouts chat and Google Talk. https://www.google.com/appserve/mkt/p/OgDDXhJgIss5M8hyjssuUfEIT-JdkRCe7cl4ESFdqXHsoqWkaRhhaReJp9rxnALq77toLgoJguNe6F7vU4aNb64-Bv0yNvZI Hangouts includes group chat, Android and Apple iOS apps, group video calling, and integration with other Google products. If you have any questions or need any help with this change, contact the ITS Service Center.

Changes to Consent for 3rd-party apps and Single Sign-on providers

Starting Monday, April 10, Google is rolling out changes to the way you authorize 3rd-party applications to access your U-M Google data.The U-M Google team has determined that this will not affect ​normal sign-in to your U-M Google account via a web browser. However, the next time you authorize a new application to access your U-M Google data, the screen may look different. More notable is that this automatically grants the application access to your email address and profile. Previously, these were listed separately on the screen. After selecting your account, you'll be taken to more information about the application, any additional permissions, and the application's developer.

Google's blog post on this change has additional details.

If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please contact the ITS Service Center.

Improving Video File Attachments in Gmail With Video Streaming

Hello,

Google has released a new feature for Gmail that makes previewing video attachments much smoother and quicker. Previously, to view a video attachment in Gmail, you would have to download it to your computer and open it with a media player. Now, when you open an email with video attachments, you will see a thumbnail of the video and have the ability to stream it, right from inside Gmail. Video is delivered at optimal quality and availability.
