Currently through Calendar Interop, if a Google Calendar user wants to see the availability of a Microsoft Exchange user to schedule a meeting, the request is performed through an Exchange role account. When too many requests occur within a certain timeframe, an Exchange role account can hit its limit, and as a result the Calendar Interop service may not work as intended.
Starting this week, admins can configure multiple role accounts in the Calendar Interop Admin console. This will provide support for a higher number of requests and enable Calendar Interop to work more seamlessly at scale.
