Last week Google added dark mode for Google Calendar and Keep, auto-provisioning for three more apps, and made it easier to delete your location history and activity data. Keep reading for the full rundown of the SaaS updates from last week.

More Admin Control Over Apps Script Projects With Google Cloud Console Management
G Suite Updates | Google is changing how Apps Script manages Google Cloud Platform (GCP) projects. This will help IT Admins govern these projects and simplify how developers manage projects as well. New Apps Script GCP projects will now live in a new folder (“apps-script”) in the GCP resource hierarchy. This means that new Apps Script projects will be governed by organization policies defined for GCP projects by IT admins.

Dark Mode Available for Calendar and Keep on Android
G Suite Updates | Google Calendar and Keep will now support Dark mode on Android. Both Calendar and Keep apps need to be updated to the latest version of the app to see this feature.

Automatically Provision Users With Three Additional Apps
G Suite Updates | Google is adding auto-provisioning support for three new applications: Hootsuite, Huddle, and OfficeSuite.

Introducing Auto-Delete Controls for Your Location History and Activity Data
The Keyword | Whether you’re looking for the latest news or the quickest driving route, Google aims to make our products helpful for everyone. And when you turn on settings like Location History or Web & App Activity, the data can make Google products more useful for you—like recommending a restaurant that you might enjoy, or helping you pick up where you left off on a previous search. Google works to keep your data private and secure, and they’ve heard your feedback that they need to provide simpler ways for you to manage or delete it. Google is announcing auto-delete controls that make it easier to manage your data.

SSO + Network Mask Domains Can Now Force Google Password Reset on Next Login
G Suite Updates | Google is providing more control over user password policies for some customers using third-party identity providers (IdPs) via SAML. Previously, these customers could not enforce the “Require password change” setting for their users. Now, SSO customers who have a network mask defined can turn on this setting and force their users to change their Google password the next time they log in using their G Suite or Cloud Identity credentials.

Consolidated Google Groups Audit Logs Now Available in G Suite and GCP
G Suite Updates | Consolidated Google Groups audit logs are now available in the G Suite AdminSDK Reports API and GCP Cloud Audit Logs.
