How to Manage Groups in the G Suite Admin Console

Google Admin Console

Google Admin Console refers to a management tool offered by Google for G Suite administrators. It allows administrators to maintain all their G Suite services from one dashboard. With this console, administrators can configure the settings for G Suite, create user accounts, and monitor the usage of their domains.

After logging in, you can easily access the Google administration console dashboard that will provide you with control for performing the administrative tasks that you need. Although some of these Consoles may be out of sight at first, they can be accessed easily from the more controls options located at the bottom of the dashboard page. You can also add the extra controls on the main area and arrange them in the way you want.

Some of the most popular control includes users, groups, admin roles, reports, and other apps. Other controls that are included are Domains, Company Profiles, Support, Security, Device Management, and App Engine.

With admin console group, a G Suite administrator can create and manage groups to allow everyone in the group to email everyone else in the group, share content on Google Drive with the group, and invite everyone to an event. The G Suite admin console is able to manage, access content as well as manage the membership.

Google Groups for Business allows people in your company to create and manage their own groups. Once a G Suite administrator enables the group for business, service people can create additional groups such as collaborative inbox or forums. Groups for Business also give people with permission the ability to moderate the messages and look for the group content.

If companies intend to use Google Groups majorly to communicate, share content, simplify calendar invitations, the Admin console groups will function well. However, if you have a large organization, G Suite Administrators may want to upgrade to Groups for Business so as to allow other people to also create and manage the groups.


How to send and receive emails

You can also leverage G Suite groups to come up with additional emails without having to buy an extra license. This includes the use case licenses where you’d like your team to receive and send emails to group email addresses such as marketing@gmail.com. Here are a few steps to follow:

  • Log in to Admin Console- In order to create and manage the groups, you must be a G Suite administrator. From Gmail, click on the settings icon and click on manage this domain to log into your account with your username and password and go to manage this domain after entering your G Suite IMAP Settings.
  • Click on groups- Once you’ve logged into the admin console, click on the groups. If you do not see the group’s icon, then you need to move to more controls where you’ll be able to drag and drop it to the list of G Suite services.
  • Click the plus icon to create a new group- If you’ve already created groups, then you’ll definitely see them listed. If not, you can opt to manage them. However, for you to manage a new group, click on the plus sign found at the right bottom of the page to create a new group. To create a new group, you require a new form. If you have more than one domain, you can select which domain you want to associate your group with and then choose the access level form. Since there are different access levels, it’s very important to read the descriptions so as to choose the level that suits you. To receive emails outside your domain groups, click the create button and fill in the form to create a new group.
  • Manage users- G Suite will also give you different ways to manage your group including managing access levels and creating nicknames among others. In order to do this, you need to click on the manage users option so as to be able to add and manage other users who are in your group. If you want to add a new member, simply type their email addresses into the field and then choose whether the user should be a member or owner. Finally, click the add button to create the new user.

Well, those are some of the ways of managing groups in a G Suite Admin Console. With all these services at the tips of your fingers, everything has been made simpler and more convenient for you to successfully run a business.
