This actually is possible. Basically, you need to add a secondary domain (not an alias) and then execute this Google Directory API request: PUT https://www.googleapis.com/admin/directory/v1/customers/my_customer?fields=customerDomain&key={YOUR_API_KEY} {"customerDomain": "my_new_domain.com"}`. You can run this command quite easily, at the time of ...

Google Apps does not natively support reporting on who has access to what in Google Drive. The report you are looking for is possible through a Google Apps script.

With Google Apps, you pay per account. So if you have 3 accounts you will pay for 3. Each account has it's own email address. However you can add an alias to an account. So email1@mydomain.com will be the primary account email address and you can have email2@mydomain.com as an alias where any emails sent to email2@mydomain.com will go to the Gmail of ...

There's a defect listed on the Google Apps Script issue tracker. We'll have to wait it out to see when a project member responds to it, I'm assuming.

A script cannot give a file to you (well, it could email it to you, but I think this is going too far). You'll need to use "save as csv" menu command, and since it only saves the current sheet, you'll have to create a sheet that has only those columns in it. The straightforward way is to just create a new sheet and type in cell A1 ={'My Sheet'!A:A, 'My ...

I talked to the former Google Apps admin. It turns out it is very simple. Rather than go to the admin section, go straight to your own calendar. From within your calendar, add the event's owner's calendar to your calendar view (from the bottom left). Now select the specific event and edit it. From the edit screen you can remove attendees.

Whether or not something is a 'downside' would be a matter of opinion and can vary from person to person. However I can say that Google Apps does still lag behind consumer Gmail for some features. For example Inbox came to consumer Gmail several months before it was available in Google Apps, and Google Spaces currently can't be used by Google Apps accounts....

For a quick and easy solution, you could use a screenshot program such as the Snipping Tool in Windows or Screenshot in Ubuntu/Linux to crop whichever part of the image you'd like to select. Most screenshot programs have the option of selecting just a section of the screen. You'll have to save the cropped image as a new image and manually re-insert it into ...

Short answer At this time it's not possible to set new custom URL mapping for Google Docs editors. Explanation Google Docs editors URL format change was announced at the beginning of 2015. If the Google Apps administrator set the URL mapping before the change were rolled out to the organization it should continue to work but if he didn't he can't create a ...

There is no way to track that, unfortunately. The only thing that is being tracked and reported is whenever a Super Admin (or an Admin with respective rights), turns the service on or off, for certain OUs or for the domain as whole. The actual user usage (accessing the takeout, or creating an archive, etc.) is not being tracked. I recently confirmed this ...

Unfortunately, you can't do that with Google Drive. Removing a folder from the list of folders to sync removes it from your local drive. Google Drive presumably assumes that the "master" version of your files exist in the "cloud". A folder set to not sync exists at drive.google.com, but can't exist on your hard drive. (At least, not in the Google Drive ...

One approach is to add a status column next to the data input: for example, in L10 it would be =if(iserror(match(H10, H11:H, 0)), "current", "obsolete") which returns "current" if no entry below the present row has the same email. Then your query can filter out the obsolete results. The above does not work with arrayformula. I don't think there is an ...
