Wednesday, Sept. 7, Information Technology Services will change the building abbreviations in the Google Calendar and Scheduling system to match the current abbreviation conventions used by the University's facility services division.
Building abbreviations are used in the "Where" field of events on your Google Calendar and are listed under "Rooms, etc." as you are scheduling a new event.
Building abbreviations for all currently scheduled events will update automatically at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7.
Room reservations and scheduling rights will not be affected by the update; the only change will be in how the building name is abbreviated.
For example, LB will change to WLC:
● If you have an event scheduled every Tuesday, 1-2 p.m. in LB-374, the event will automatically be scheduled every Tuesday, 1-2 p.m. in WLC-374.
● If you have permission to reserve LB-374, you will have permission to reserve WLC-374.
|Building||Google Calendar Abbreviation Old||Google Calendar Abbreviation New|
|Cardinal Glennon Children's Med Center||CAG||CGH|
|Doisy Research Center||EDR||DRC|
|McDonnell Douglas Hall||MDD||MDH|
|Xavier Hall Annex||XAN||XVA|
These 14 abbreviation changes are a result of either building name changes, or in instances where multiple abbreviations have been used for the same building, the need for consistent designations across campus.
Please contact the IT Service Desk at 977-4000 with any questions about the Google Calendar and Scheduling system or the building abbreviation updates.
