Receive Notifications on Your iOS Device for High-Priority Emails Only
G Suite Updates | Notifications are only useful if you have time to read them—and if you’re being notified hundreds of times a day, chances are, you don’t. That’s why Google is introducing a feature that alerts you only when important emails land in your Gmail inbox, so you know when your attention is really required.

New Previews Capabilities Make Teamwork Easier
Dropbox Blog | To make the reviewing and iterating stages of the process easier, Dropbox is introducing new previews capabilities. Here’s how they can help your team save time and drive work forward.

End User Rollout for Google Sites Automatic Conversion Tool Starting
G Suite Updates | As a reminder, the automatic migration tool to transfer Google Sites from classic Sites to new Sites started rolling out to end users this week (June 19). The tool makes it quicker and easier to move sites created in classic Sites to new Sites.

Use New Theme Options to Customize and Brand Your Google Forms
G Suite Updates | To help Google Forms users create more personalized surveys, feedback forms, quizzes, and more, Google is introducing new theme customization options. Specifically, you can now choose colors and fonts to theme your form.

Jamboard Now Available for Purchase in Australia and New Zealand
G Suite Updates | Over the past year, Google has announced that Jamboard, its cloud-based, collaborative whiteboard, is available for purchase in an ever-growing list of countries such as the United States, Canada, the UK, and select parts of Europe. They are now expanding that list further, bringing Jamboard to Australia and New Zealand.

Enable Interoperability with Third-Party Systems for Hangouts Meet
G Suite Updates | Earlier this month, Google announced interoperability with SIP/H.323 standards based video conferencing systems and Skype for Business in Hangouts Meet through the Pexip Infinity Platform. You can now enable this feature in the Admin console at Apps > G Suite > Google Hangouts and checking the box for “Turn on interoperability with other systems” under “Meet Settings.” After the feature is enabled and a token is generated, you will need a license from Pexip for the solution to work.

New in Google Vault: Hangouts Meet and Drive Trash File Retention, Improved Search and Exports
G Suite Updates | Google is introducing new features in Google Vault that allow for more granular retention and provide a more transparent search experience. These features can help you retain exactly the data you need and thereby reduce your liability risk, as well as improve your eDiscovery process with better search and export capabilities.

New for Custom Fields: Emojis, Links, and More
Asana Blog | With custom fields, you can collect and track the specific information you need to move projects forward. Then use this information to organize work and run reports to make better decisions, faster.
