Google Apps Changes – Round 2

Google Apps has changed We transitioned your account to our new infrastructure for Google Apps on May 31, 2011 to make more Google services available to your organization. Here’s what this means for you: In addition to the core suite of messaging and collaboration applications, your users may now access many more Google services. You will retain control over which Google services your users can access. This update is free, and Google automatically made the transition for you on May 31, 2011. By default, we have turned services outside of Google’s core suite of messaging and collaboration applications ON. You can manage your on/off controls in the Organization & users tab. Agree to the following before signing into control panel I have read and I understand the transition. I understand that these additional services are only covered by self-service online support, that they may not be SAS 70 compliant, and that the Google Apps uptime SLA does not apply. By checking this box I agree to Additional Terms for services made available with the new accounts infrastructure. Learn about the users we transitioned in your organization that have conflicting accounts.

Outlook 2007/2010 – Gmail Help – Google

Google’s help for setting up Microsoft Outlook 2007 / Microsoft Outlook 2010 with G-mail and Google apps seems to be offline or at least redirecting to a non-helpful general e-mail page.

Google Apps No Longer Free

On Friday, Dec 7th, 2012 at 8:53 PM I received an e-mail from Google announcing they will no longer be allowing free signups for Google Apps. Google Apps initially offered a “free tier” that allowed up to 50 users free per organization / domain. Then Google reduced that number to 10. Now there is no free tier. Here is the message from Google: Hello from Google, Here’s some important news about Google Apps—but don’t worry, there’s no need for you to take any action. We just want you to know that we’re making a change to the packages we offer. Starting today, we’re no longer accepting new sign-ups for the free version of Google Apps (the version you’re currently using). Because you’re already a customer, this change has no impact on your service, and you can continue to use Google Apps for free. Should you ever want to upgrade to Google Apps for Business, you’ll enjoy benefits such as 24/7 customer support, a 25 GB inbox, business controls, our 99.9% uptime guarantee, unlimited users and more for just $5 per user, per month. You can learn more about this change in our Help Center or on the Enterprise Blog. Thank you for using Google Apps. Clay Bavor Director, Google Apps

Google Docs: Share Outside My Organization (solved)

If you’re facing the problem with Google Docs where the “Users can share documents outside this domain” option doesn’t work, or the following issues, see the solution below on how to fix this. These are the problems reported by others about Share Google Docs Outside Your Organization: When I’m in the sharing settings in the document there is NO option to share out of organization. I disabled the option “Users can share documents outside this domain” several time ago and now, I reactivated it in order to share documents with users outside my domain. When I want to share any document with people outside the domain I am not able to get the option to do that. When viewing document share options, I can’t see the toolbar where I am asked to allow people outside the domain to view or edit the document. When I try to get a public link to the document, I only have the option to get it for people inside the domain. Control panel options are set properly but no change is performed in Google Docs. I have another google apps domain account where I’m able to do that. In that account I’ve never disabled the share with people outside the domain. I suspect the problem comes when you disable public sharing for the very first time and then you want to reactivate it again. I don’t have the option ‘Users can publish documents to the public internet’ available. I have multiple Google Domains, to … Continue reading
