Set the default duration for events in your organization
This article is for administrators. To manage your own calendar, visit the Calendar help.
As an administrator, you can set the default duration for new events in your organization. This default is used as the meeting length when events are created. However, users in your organization can always set a different default for their own calendars and change the duration of their own events.
Note: If users have set their own default duration, the organization default is ignored.
- In the Admin console, go to Menu AppsGoogle WorkspaceCalendar.
- Click Advanced settings.
(Optional) To set the default for specific users in your organization, select the organizational unit or group.
- Select a default event duration, then click Save. The recommended event duration is 30 minutes.
Changes can take up to 24 hours but typically happen more quickly. Learn more
