1/13/20 G Suite Roundup: Updates That Matter Most

Many G Suite updates have been in the works at Google already. Read on to learn about the highlights, including a new sender option in Gmail, easier presentation copying in Slides, and a password recovery method for super admins.

Sender attribution for shared inboxes

Many organizations make use of shared inboxes for various purposes. These purposes include using a shared address such as hello@hiviewsolutions.com for receiving customer inquiries, or an executive sending an email on behalf of a CEO.

Currently, the actual sender of the email is displayed for recipients rather than only the shared address. This setting will remain as the default, but users can now choose to hide the attribution to the specific sender. To toggle this feature, navigate to Settings > Account > Grant access to your account in Gmail.

This feature will be visible on all domains by the end of January 2020.

Duplicating Slides presentations

G Suite users now have more options when making copies in Google Slides. Previously, users could only make copies of entire presentations.

To use this feature, open the presentation to be copied and click File > Make a Copy > Selected Slides.

Password recovery for super admins

Super admins now have an easier option for recovering their passwords. By enabling “Super admin account recovery,” they can follow Admin console > Security > Account recovery to activate and use this feature when needed.

Admins can also expect to see gradual updates creating a more streamlined, uniform interface for their security centers which will not affect functionality. More information is to come in our next Weekly G Suite Roundup.
