Google Cloud Search

People store information in many different formats, including emails, slides, spreadsheets, documents etc. So it’s actually not surprising that. The average knowledge worker spends 20% of the workweek searching for and consolidating information But now with Google Cloud Search, you find the information you need, when you need it. Google Cloud Search (formerly known as Springboard) was announced in February. It basically provides a unified search experience across G Suite to help you access information quickly. It also brings you recommendations based on your search.

Assist cards in the Cloud Search app (on your phone or laptop) are simple cards containing the information you need to help you prepare for a meeting or to stay on top of another area of your work for the day. They will even suggest files that require your attention. These assist cards are designed to provide you with the right information at the right time.

And it’s not just information you can search for. You can also find people who work for your organisation too and gain access to their contact details, as well as any event s and files you have in common. You can contact them in one click via email, phone call or Google Hangout.

Google Keep

Available since 2013, Google Keep is a note-taking app, allowing you to capture your thoughts, ideas and actions all in one place. Google Keep is now a core service of GSuite, which means that Keep content will be handled as specified in your GSuite agreement and Keep will be compliant with terms, conditions and service levels defined in the GSuite Technical Support Services Guidelines and the GSuite Service Level Agreement. It will also be added as a monitored  service to the GSuite Status Dashboard.

Keep is enabled for all new organisations that use Drive and Admins can control who uses Keep in their organisation. They can also define how users share notes. Keep is now also accessible on Google Docs on the web.

Transfer Tool for Unmanaged Users

Personal Google accounts can clash with G Suite accounts and become conflicts. This is because two accounts can’t share the same email address. Now there is a way to resolve these conflicting accounts with the new transfer tool for unmanaged users. Google has made it easier to identify and transfer those accounts before they conflict. You can view all personal Google accounts with email addresses that match your GSuite email address for your organisation using the new transfer tool on the right-hand side of your console. This allows you to send emails to those people requesting that they convert their personal accounts to G Suite accounts.
