Hi all, I am wondering how other companies with offices in China who use Google Workspace handle working with heir Chinese colleagues. We use a VPN but it’s not amazingly stable and it all really affects my ability to roll out Google Meet and the rest of the suite - China is a growing market for us so it is a pressing issue. I suspect there is no light at the end of the tunnel with Google and China - personally I believe Workspace should split off from the rest of Google and should deal with the China issue separately as there is no logic in bundling all of Google together and blocking off a straightforward productivity channel like Workspace. Companies should be able to assess their own risk.All highly unlikely, so in the meantime if anyone has any advice of Workspace in China that would be really welcomeThanks!
Hi all! We are cancelling this week’s Workspace Coffee Chat, as we have a large internal meeting within the C2C Team. We look forward to seeing you at our next Coffee Chat on Thursday, March 31! Register here 👇 If you still want to get your fix this week, join us at our GCP Coffee Chat today! ☕
In 2018, Google achieved 12 consecutive years of carbon neutrality and, for the second year in a row, matched 100% of the electricity consumption of our global operations with renewable energy. Then, it announced the goal to power operations with carbon-free energy, 24x7, 365 days a year. Currently, Google Cloud data centers use a blend of renewable and nonrenewable energy. Carbon emissions, for example, the release of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) into the atmosphere, are part and parcel of performing any kind of activity at the data center. However, Google Cloud is helping customers like us understand this information in a consumable format, so we can check the environmental footprint of the data centers in which we host their applications. What does this information mean for us, and how can we help make our applications friendlier to Earth while working on an optimum performance?
Has anyone setup MTA-STS? Would you recommend it?Looks to me like there are some DNS settings to add (easy enough) and then a text file to host on a public facing server which seems a pain if you live in Workspace and don’t have public facing servers - is that about right?Does it cause any issues with domains that don’t use/support MTA-STS or does it just fail over to standatd SMTP?Thanks for your thoughts and inputsGraham
I live in a retirement community that has a great woodshop. In the shop we now have a very nice laser system and I have been assigned the opportunity of setting up a calendar system that 16 of the 55 members can access to reserve time on the system. The issue that I have is can someone that does not have a google account access a google calendar and how would they do that. I have created at google account on the computer that we use for the laser system and can create the calendar. I think I can then share it with the folks that have gmail accounts but how to access it from the other accounts I have no Idea. Appreciate any help.
Does anybody have a recommended solution that help them securely send content to organizations that block access to Google/Google Drive? Ideally something that can integrate with Google so that our users can easily invoke the solution to send content. Ideally depending on the sensitivity of the content the content may or may not require a login to access, a unique link may suffice.

Hello All. Appreciate if someone can provide guidance on this.We want to create a coexistence in such a way that Office 365 users are Provisioned in Google Workspace as a Cloud Identity licenses. Office 365 domain could be registered as a Primary domain or a Secondary domain in existing Google Workspace entity.For User Provisioning - We would be using GCDS, by authorising it on Office 365 On-Prem AD with Google Workspace SA credentials.For User Password Sync - We understand, password changed on On-Prem AD can be synced to Google Workspace via GSPS, BUT can it also sync the password if Office 365 user changes the password from Office 365 web browser login or Azure Admin changes it.There is an option in Azure to do a password write back to on Prem AD - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/authentication/tutorial-enable-sspr-writeback.Went through the documentation of GSPS where details are mentioned with respect to active directory password change event. Curious to und
i have a google sheet which uses an importrange function and has worked for several years. for some reason, it has suddenly started to fail to copy a couple of rows in the middle of other data and is failing to copy the newest records. i have tried deleting and restoring the importrange formula in the destination sheet with the same result.thinking that it might be related to the amount of data to be imported, i also tried an arrayformula approach but the result is the same. since neither of these worked, i have tried a script to getValues instead of using importrange but again the result is the same.it's as if the originating data that is missing from the destination sheet is simply not in the originating sheet even though it's clearly visible. to make matters even more confusing, if i try to print the data in question from a highlighted range in the originating sheet, the missing data which is interspersed with data that is successfully copied shows in the print preview but the data

many google fi customers are having their products sent to their old address, even after they believe they have updated info, and selected their new address on google fi order forms.info shared across google platforms will Add address info, and not update or change it across all platforms. So changing the address in a profile of a single platform (such as Google Fi), will only add a new addresses to a list, but NOT change any address on that list. The customer, however, is given the impression that the info was updated when in fact it was only added to a list of addresses.Here is the problem; phone products need to be sent to your legal address, but when you try to tell google fi to send it to your new address, the google platform will override your selection on a sales order and send it to the address you have first registered assuming it is your legal address. customers, customer support, teams and specialists don’t understand this is a software issue, and are assuming that the cu
We have a couple of clients and students that are still running Google G Suite for their small businesses. With Google looking to stop the free service that they have been using for years, this has concerned a lot of clients and students. Do you think this is right? We feel that Google said that the service was free and now with them changing their minds, it feels like a bait and switch. https://chimicles.com/google-legacy-g-suite-class-action-investigation/
Hi, all.When I open any of my Google Docs, regardless of type, they will freeze my Chrome Browser and all open tabs for about :20-:30 secs. Then, they begin to function normally until I close and re open, and the condition then repeats.This issue began about a month after I upgraded to Monterey, but doesn’t seem to have been the direct cause, as the documents functioned normally for a while.I have uninstalled and re installed Google Drive. I have left the synced file directory on my hard drive at it’s default install location. I have not reinstalled Chrome, but regularly clear the Cache. I have not reinstalled the OS, as all other program apps are functioning normal.Conditions:Persists whether I open a file from synced hard drive or directly from Google Drive online Persists from different locations, different Service Providers, different routers. No one else that shares these files experience this condition. From my new 2021 Macbook Pro laptop, I do not experience any of these con
Hello, yesterday I encountered problem where chrome_debug.log (C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Local\Google\DriveFS\Logs) completely filled my local disk space to 100%.

Yesterday, as I began to select a recipient for a GMAIL message under “TO”, I typed the first letter of the recipient, and a very strange recipient address appeared, consisting of many characters, but having a definitive ( .com ) location at the end? I became curious, and checked my GMAIL contacts to see if this address was there. After scrolling through my entire contact list, I did not find the strange contact? How could this unknown contact have appeared in my recipient choices, but not in my contact list?Thanks,Careful User
