G Suite released a handful of updates last week, ranging from a new way to make your charts pop to changes to the Access Transparency logs. Find all of last week’s SaaS updates in our recap post.

Get Email Alerts and See Associated Tickets for Access Transparency Logs
G Suite Updates | Google is making two improvements which will make Access Transparency logs more useful for G Suite admins. Specifically, G Suite admins can now choose to receive email alerts when specific Access Transparency logs are created and see any support ticket numbers associated with requests in the Audit log report.

New Controls for Displaying Sender Attribution for Shared Mailboxes
G Suite Updates | Google is adding new controls for how the “Sender Attribution for Shared Mailboxes” is displayed. Currently, sender attribution is always enabled—this will remain the default setting unless disabled by the admin or the end user. For end users, there’s a new setting in Gmail where you can specify what information is included in the email header of messages sent by delegates. For admins, there’s a new setting in the admin console that allows you to hide all attribution for shared mailboxes in your domain or organizational unit (OU). This will override and disable the user setting in Gmail.

More Options for Copying Presentations in Google Slides
G Suite Updates | When creating a copy of an existing Google Slides presentation, you’ll now be able to select specific slides to copy instead of the whole deck and remove the speaker notes from the copy. This feature makes it easier to parse out and share the most relevant content with your team, audience, or other stakeholders.

Break Out a Single Value Within a Pie Chart in Google Sheets
G Suite Updates | You can now “pull out” and highlight a slice from a pie or donut chart in Google Sheets. This feature gives you more ways to control the look of your charts and better display the most important data in Sheets.

Manage Hangouts Meet and Classic Hangouts Video Calls With One Setting
G Suite Updates | Video calling from Hangouts Meet and classic Hangouts is now controlled by the same setting. This means that the setting in the Admin console that controls classic Hangouts video calling now also controls Hangouts Meet.
