IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Changes to Google Calendar - 1st July 2021

Posted on 11/06/2021 11:03:56

We are aware of a change being made to Google Calendar sharing in the near future.


This will not apply to everyone and if you are not currently using a “secret address” to access your NSIX Google Calendar, this communication can be ignored.


A secret address is a unique weblink that enables you to add your NSIX Google Calendar to applications such as Microsoft Outlook and Apple Mail.


For those of you who are sharing an NSIX Google Calendar using a secret address with applications, please be aware that Google have introduced new security. As a result of this, the secret address you currently use will no longer work after 1st July 2021. We recommend that users of this service reconfigure their applications with a new secret address, if continued access is needed.


The secret address can be found in the Google Calendar settings page under the Settings for my calendars > Integrate calendar section. For more information on how to change your settings please visit here


Please note: We do not hold any details regarding the secret addresses and Google’s recommendation is that you do not share this secret address with anyone.
