Build business continuity, productivity and collaboration across hybrid and distributed workforces.
Morning all (or afternoon depending on where you are)!My company is a Google Partner for Selling GW in UK & I. I’ve seen an increase in enquiries for GW from prospects in the US and NZ, where we’re not a Partner.At the moment, we don’t use a local distributor and just set up the GW client with our billing information and then invoice the client with our services bundled in. We also don’t bother to put margin on the GW licences, just sell at cost.I’m curious as to how you folks deal with those situations.CheersPaul
Earlier this week, I attended a webinar on Google Tables (Beta by Area 120).I was impressed by its capabilities and the possibilities it’d create if it ever became a core Google Workspace product.But that’s the thing… will it?I’m hesitant to embed it deeply within my organization or encourage my clients to do the same given Google’s record of fast-failing products that don’t gain sufficient traction.On the other hand, I’m encouraged by some of the high-profile clients they already have using Tables.Thoughts? Will Tables stick?
I’m curious about what some of our company leaders have in mind for what long-term effects the pandemic will have on work life.I want to give our community a chance to help shape the conversation we’re hosting on The Future of Work from an Executive View. While we always offer live Q&A, any questions you have ahead of time are things that we can weave into our planned conversation with Kelly Ducourty and Peter High. Either way, I encourage you all to sign up!@ChristianNewman shared on a separate thread that “for optimal employee engagement and productivity, the collaboration experience must be designed to be remote-first.” What are you or your companies working on now to prepare for that post-vaccine return to normalcy? Are employers prioritizing hybrid landscapes moving forward?

What role do you serve in your current organization?I’m the Marketing Manager at Tricent, which is SaaS-solution that helps Google Workspace users audit and un-share their files with external collaborators (e.g. Docs, Sheets, Slides, images, videos, etc) What's your experience with Google Cloud? Limited, but I am keeping myself updated with the latest features and trends. I’ve started some GCP courses for beginners : ) What are you “famous” for? My marketing collaboration with Google for Education in Scandinavia and the UK, which has led to several successfully co-hosted events, webinars, and guides related to Google-solutions (Jamboard, Chromebook, GSEFE, EdTech trends, etc). Karate, but I suppose that’s not really relevant here 😁 What is the #1 result you'd like to get out of this community? Connect and collaborate with other Googlers. I’d be happy to help arrange and promote co-hosted webinars, events, and educational material that can benefit Google Workspace users around the
Google Workspace introduced the enhanced “Recommended for Google Workspace” program to help customers make the best decisions about their business apps.https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/workspace/enhancing-the-recommended-for-google-workspace-program?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=unpaidsoc&utm_campaign=FY21-Q2-blog&utm_content=-&utm_term=-What do you think about that?Image from Google Workspace
Provisioning, Deprovisioning, Onboarding, Offboarding, or User Lifecycle Management, we all have terms we use for the starters, leavers and movers tasks we follow within our Google Workspace environment.On the 17th June the UK and Ireland Community will be hosting another online event on this popular topic. Before then we’re interested to understand how others are managing this process? What tools and scripts are you using?Are you scripting and using tools like GAM, which is extremely popular amongst many Google Workspace for Education customers, or have your purchased Google Workspace management tools like BetterCloud or Patronum? Have you taken advantage of the new Google Workspace licensing options for archived users? OnboardingWhen you create a new user, what processes have you automated? Do you use Google Apps Script to create Contracts, Training Records etc? Or something more sophisticated like Zenphi?OffboardingWhen it comes to offboarding there are a number of key steps, what a
I am the Product Owner for Google Workspace in my organization. I lead a team of over 320+ volunteers who we have named Google Guides to help me facilitate communication, evangelization, tips and tricks as well as helping team members become productive utilizing Google Workspace tools. Our company acquires companies frequently and it seems as though we are always in the process of transitioning new teams onto Google Workspace, typically from a Microsoft environment.The Google Guides started out as a small team of professionals in our organization who volunteered to help us pilot Google Workspace (G Suite at the time), evangelize our company’s decision to move away from Microsoft to Google and help team members worldwide transition. As many of you know, often times team members transition enthusiastically but more often than not, they go kicking and screaming! LOLMy role is to make that transition more comfortable, to train, provide tips and tricks, lead our Google Guides organizati
Can someone please go out and ask a Googler why for gods sake a +-Alias (say dominik+C2C@22dconsulting.com) is treated as an actual ALIAS to the primary account BUT in case of creating a new unmanaged gmail account? It works in Calendar It works in Meet It works in Drive It (obviously) works in Emails. Why is the account creation flow just … you know … IGNORING it? Thanks for coming to my RANT-Talk
On our weekly “coffee chat” style Connect event (link below), we had an interesting question from Vince Parra. If you know the answer or have any tips, help out your fellow C2C member (Vince is signing up after find out about us on Clubhouse!)

Google has come out with an interesting value calculator to measure impact of google workspace. The two I found are: https://workspacecalculator.withgoogle.com/ which seems to work better for larger organizations and another one that was suggested to me by Joey Miller from intercloud. https://inthecloud.withgoogle.com/future-of-work-21/register.html?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=unpaidsoc&utm_campaign=FY21-Q1-Blog&utm_content=assessment&utm_term=-&linkId=111973704. I would love to better understand if there are other tools out there that you like to use to help drive use case development within your organization to adopt more google workspace.
The general consensus is that people have love/hate relationship with Google Chat. When Slack had outage at the beginning of the year, many Slack organizations had no choice but to resort to Chat as a backup. Compared to Slack/MS Teams, there are many areas of improvements for Chat. What are some of the items on your wishlist?I will start.Ability to delete rooms More admin controls (who can created rooms, who can post, who can leave, etc., similar to how Google released updated settings for Groups back in 2019) Ability for admins to see the group email addresses associated with each room Updated API
On one of my YouTube video tutorials, that was about Google Shared Drive, I had an interesting comment: I’ve always struggled with how to justify a shared drive rather than create a folder and share it with groups (teams) of staff. I end up treating it much like a shared drive. I do this as an Admin, and I can restrict or expand various settings. I would appreciate if someone would show a comparison of creating a folder in Workspace that will be treated like a shared drive, and then show why that is limited and what you can do better on a shared drive to make it worth my staff learning how and to start using them. So I set out to make a short but informative video for Google Workspace users to see why, in probably most cases, they should be using shared drives and not shared folders from their My Drive.
Hi I want to create a thread here as a newbie and startup corner for anyone that is looking for workspace related resources.. both for novices, admins and people that are looking for more integration plays with their existing landscapes. I will be posting helpful links and would invite you to do the same
Google Workspace and particularly Google Meet is literrraly saving our relationships, work and studying in the pandemia. It can be a facilitator too where participants generate new ideas and solutions to varous scenarions in our daily work.Here's a demo how participants from different nationalities can talk in their native languages and still understand each other. This is possible by combining live captions in Google Meet and Translate in Chrome. In this video we are talking in German, French and English. Live captions in Google Meet are currently (March 2021) available in Spanish, French, German and Portuguese on desktop, Android and iOS. https://youtu.be/bTLiQsSWDvsDo you agree that native languages can be viewed as motivation and potential for growth of Cloud solutions?

Google Workspace is certainly a flexible solution in all industries thus unifyng tech professionals, educators and tech lovers. I find Google Workspace easy to use because one needs to resolve a single challenge, the decision to define and put into action a collaboration. For my OnEBoard project I worked on a couple of issues with Google Support. I learned to not overcomplicate things but ask relevant questions and move one step at a time. Without coding OnEBoard took me 10 months from start to launch with Google Workspace and a dedicated team of collaborators. I'm continuing to explore easy solutions such as having a conversation in native languages while in Meet. using live captions and Translate feature in Chrome. What is your experience with Google Workspace easy implementations?
I thought this article from Tech HQ really nailed with @ChristianNewman and team was getting at during the Talk last week. Take a look at the Tech HQ article. Some of the features it highlights that demonstrate how the product is focusing on remote work are as follows:Google Assistant where users can now use their voice to ask Google what’s next on their calendar or to quickly join a meeting and send a message. Recurring ‘out-of-office’ events where users will be able to schedule regular, recurring out-of-office blocks. Second screen experiences in Google Meet where users can host meetings across a mix of devices. What do you think about them? Do you agree? Do you have others to add? Tell us below!
I’m one of the co-hosts of the Workspace Recap podcast (Google, Apple, Spotify) and we heard that some of you are not on iDevcies yet and wanted to make sure you could participate on the Clubhouse event we (me + @jesse nowlin) host each Wednesday.
