Greetings. This week, Google introduced a new feature called Endpoint Verification, which gives admins more visibility into which computers are being used to access corporate data and apps. Google also announced that on June 28, 2018, Tasks will launch as a standalone G Suite core service. But wait, there’s more! Google’s App Maker is now generally available, and there are some changes to the Gmail routing settings in the Admin console. In other news, Microsoft announced that user experience updates for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook will be rolling out gradually over the next few months.

Read on for more details.

Celebrate Pride with Asana Celebrations
Asana Blog | Asana is happy to celebrate Pride with their employees and customers worldwide—and so are their celebration creatures! That’s why this month, you’ll notice their celebrations are extra proud to show their support of the LGBTQIA+ community. They hope these updates encourage their employees and customers to be themselves and feel supported at work, as well as making their product itself more inclusive.

Old Gmail Routing Settings to Be Automatically Converted Starting July 11th
G Suite Updates | In January 2017, Google announced some changes to the Gmail routing settings in the Admin console. These changes are now launching this month. Going forward, your remaining Sending routing, Receiving routing, Catch-all address, and Domain-level routing settings are read-only. These settings are still active, but in order to make changes, you need to click the CONVERT button next to the existing rule.

Power and Simplicity—Updates to the Office 365 User Experience
Microsoft 365 Blog | Microsoft is pleased to announce user experience updates for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook rolling out gradually over the next few months.

New Desktop Device Reporting in the Admin Console
G Suite Updates | Google is giving G Suite admins more visibility into which computers are being used to access their corporate data and apps through a new feature called “Endpoint Verification.” Endpoint Verification collects information via Chrome extensions and native apps on users’ devices, and displays that information to admins in a new report in the Admin console.

Build the Apps Your Business Needs with App Maker
G Suite Updates | Google is making App Maker generally available to help you rethink how your teams operate. App Maker is G Suite’s low-code application development environment that makes it easy for teams to build custom apps to speed up workflows and make processes better.

Google Tasks to Launch as a G Suite Core Service on June 28, 2018
G Suite Updates | On June 28, 2018, Tasks will launch as a standalone G Suite core service. Since Tasks was previously available as a feature of Gmail and Calendar to all domains, Tasks will launch ON by default, but it can be turned off at any time in the Admin console under Apps > G Suite.
