Google Apps user and domain management can be particularly challenging, especially if your organization is comprised of many users. The native Google Apps manager, known as the Admin Console, lacks some desired functionality and can often be a challenge to navigate. Luckily, third-party applications, like BetterCloud, provide extensive domain and user management features within an easy-to-use interface.
Google Apps Manager for User and Domain Management – BetterCloud
BetterCloud gives domain administrators the ability to seamlessly manage their users and domain from one easy-to-navigate interface. Some of BetterCloud’s extensive features include:
BetterCloud builds out extensive user profiles, which can be customized with profile pictures, contact information and more. Admins can also require password resets, contributing to easier management, but also enhanced domain security. BetterCloud will eventually allow end-users to update and manage their own profiles, delegating tasks from the IT department to individual users.
Create and add users to Groups and Org. Units with a few clicks. Domain administrators can also add, remove and change group ownership and membership in bulk, cutting down on management time and effort.
BetterCloud also includes shared contacts sync, which pushes domain contacts to the mobile devices of all users. This automated process cuts down on the time needed to upload and save these contacts and ensures that all employees have up to date contact information for all vital organization contacts, clients and otherwise.
BetterCloud allows admins to delegate email inbox access or monitor a user’s inbox through a few simple steps. Delegation comes in handy particularly during employee absences and inbox monitoring gives execs the oversight they seek.
