Google Workspace – New Admin Console

Google is updating the look of their Workspace (formerly G Suite) Admin Console. It’s definitely a different look but what’s exciting is the card framework. Google’s goal here is to make it quicker to navigate and find information you are looking for. We find that the vast majority of organizations outside our management only tap into 11% or less of the information found in the Admin Console. We’re hoping this helps change that.

Here are the official release notes:

Quick launch summary

We’re making some updates to the home page in the Admin console. You may notice:

  • A new card-based interface which includes more information and links to provide quick access to common tasks.
  • Expandable (or collapsible) cards for Users, Billing, and Domains, with quick links to common items in those areas.
  • Reordered items to make it easier to find the most used sections and complete common tasks.
We hope this design will make it quicker to navigate around the Admin console, easier to find items you need to manage, and simpler to understand how Google Workspace is deployed within your organization.
