This video looks at what is new for GSuite users, including the relaunch of Google Sites, App Maker, Google Team Drives, Google Slides and some admin updates.
Google Sites has been around for years, but in the last 6 months Google has completely rebuilt the platform. On 23rd November 2016, this previously low-key website creation tool went live to all GSuite users. The aim of Google Sites is for anyone to be able to create a team-oriented site where people can collaborate and share files.
Features includes 6 themes, a preview mode for different devices, the ability to track performance with Google Analytics, a more user-friendly and intuitive interface and, of course, integration with Drive.
Classic Sites is still available, but this will eventually be shut down and existing sites migrated to the new Google Sites.
App Maker is a low code, application development tool for building custom apps for your business. It is available via the Early Adopter Programme (EAP) for GSuite business customers and helps you build tailor-made apps in days, instead of months.
Features include built-in templates, drag-and-drop UI editor and point-and-click data modelling.
App Maker is integrated with GSuite data and apps, so you don’t need to worry about servers, capacity or other IT issues.
Google Team Drives
Also new is Google Team Drives – shared spaces where teams can store their files collectively so every member has the most up-to-date information at all times and from wherever they are working.
The Early Adopter Program (EAP) is open to GSuite Business and Education customers.
New in Google Slides is the Slides API, which helps you import data into your slides more easily to turn business data into presentations. This overcomes the issue of importing data manually into slides to build data-rich presentations in seconds.
Watch the video for all this, plus some admin updates.
