Are you looking for a detailed, comprehensive training for G Suite administrators and Admin Console? Whether you are a new comer to G Suite, or you are an existing administrator that looks to know how to work with the Admin Console, this is the only G Suite administrator training course you will need!
If you look around for resources and places that provide G Suite administrator training you will find a lot, but are they enough? Google has their own official G Suite administrator training course, but it is not exactly covering all the aspects of the Admin Console.
G Suite is a great service that offers a lot of flexibility and productivity. And
Today I needed to find some email in my Gmail… I usually either look for the email using search or if I know where it is I just go there. However when I was doing that, I monitored myself how I was getting to the email I want. At the same time I remembered few years ago before I start using G Suite and Gmail how long it will take me to do a search like this. Usually I’d have to wait for Outlook to index my messages, then do the search, then wait for the computer and Outlook to respond again! So it was really a very annoying process…
I’ve got this idea when I was staring at one error message that was generated Office 365 for a user who was trying to send email message to another user who has a full mailbox… The guy who sent me this error looking for help, did not even bother to read few lines in the email that could explain all the problem for him!
So I thought OK, I got an idea that is going to do a great good for everyone! I’ll start from now on to document every single error message that I get. The only condition that I’ll follow is it must be related to Email. Be it Office 365, G Suite’s Gmail, or Microsoft Exchange Server.
Please leave any comment below for your feedback, or what type of details that you want to see in each post for error message.
So you finally got the deal of a new G Suite project and you are preparing to star the work! You are in the middle of making the plans and time tables… As well as well getting the details that you need from the customer. This phase is one of the most critical phases in your project. Because once the preparations are complete, the project implementation will begin.
When to start the G Suite project?
Well, you can start it any time you want! Except not in the following times:
When the customer’s IT team are going into their holidays…
First of all, the IT has nothing to do with making the decision of going G Suite… They may influence the decision but they don’t make it. Simply because this type of decisions is a business decision in the first place. The more critical job of the IT department is to facilitate this shift and transfer to a new philosophy and technology. The business management will see the product functions and usability through end users who are getting the support they need from IT.
I was working recently on a project who required data migration from Office 365 to Gmail. Everything went well and we had no issues at all except for a single problem that occurred because of a sort of strange cause…
One of the users has a very large mailbox size, about 70 GB. He uses sub-folders heavily in his Outlook client. And he is not using any sort of rules! He sorts his email manually. When I saw the data migration completed, the IT contact who is working with me from the customer side reported a strange problem in this particular mailbox. He said the user complained about having some of his folders split into two…
I’m not giving a straight statement on what a G Suite administrator should have to be able to manage his domain… Instead I will do a comparison then go to the conclusion.
When we work with G Suite products, both on the sales side and the technical side, we tend not to compare G Suite to other competitor products (Aka. Office 365, Microsoft Exchange Server…), the reason is because G Suite is a totally different product with its own idea, features, work-flow, and thinking… So it is not right to compare two different things that has nothing in common other than some functionality. But for the sake of the title of this post, I’ll start it with a comparison.
So, after the introduction in part 1, I will start with this subject, which is the most critical of the whole project, because based on the output of this step or phase, your plan and your action and teams will be decided.
System survey and data gathering
For me, the most important tasks that always created issues and troubles in every project, can be resolved by making sure the following items are all known and documented before starting to make the plan:
Make sure the domain to be migrated is not registered with Google Apps
Confirm the customer has access to the public domain DNS zone, and get the access
Internet connection: its stability and available bandwidth
Find out if a mail security or anti-spam solution is in use, and email flow route
Find out the most important workflows and processes that are related to the email system
