I floated this by the G-suite admin that I sometimes use for issues with our account. Not 100% thrilled with the answer, but thought I would post it here. Perpahs other folks use G-suite and we can try to get to the bottom of this. It's frustrating for the lag, especially when we depend so much on our calendars.
Here is her response:
_"I was doing some research to advise as best as I can, but keep in mind that this is a third party service and we won't be able to directly troubleshoot. I'm sorry to hear that there's been a compatibility problem with that software, but it really depends on the connection between the software and our product, internet speed, network and such. If there's any connection issue, we can definitely do our best to see what can be done on our end. _
_Rich, I encourage you to let our Product Engineers now about the time it takes to sync Google Calendars with other apps, so that you can submit a request for speed optimization. You can visit our Feature Ideas page at Google Cloud Connect, then you can either search for a matching post or post your own idea. More details on this page can be found in this Help Center article https://support.google.com/a/answer/6284762?hl=en. _
