The Google Admin Console

Technical Assistance and Training:
The Google Apps Admin Console is a powerful tool with many options for customizing your users’ experience. ​We offer customized assistance for district personnel who have the responsibility of running a Google Apps for Education domain for their district or organization. This training can cover a wide range of topics related to Google Apps configuration, with a focus on best practices for education users and technical administration personnel.

Topics include:

  • How to customize the admin control panel
  • Best practices for how to create and organize users
  • Configuration of app settings to suit the needs of your domain
  • Mastering the basics of monitoring a domain for suspicious activity

Please Note:
This workshop touches very briefly on deployment and migration information; it is not meant to be an in-depth overview of deployment of a Google Apps domain or migration to Google services.

This training ​is appropriate for current system administrators who want a walk-through of Google’s system, or technically proficient Google Apps users who want to start managing a Google Apps for Education domain.

  • Users need their own Google Apps for Education domain and super administrator access to participate in this ​training.
  • Users must be comfortable using Google Apps, and familiar with the basics of the user experience.
