Gopher for Users

Make molehills out of mountains

    • How easy is it for you to manage important properties, custom attributes, and settings flags on your G Suite users?
    • Are you spending too much time in the admin panel, or fiddling with command line tools to perform bulk actions on users?
    • Are you using the Google Contact directory and employee information attributes to their full potential?
    • Are you using custom G Suite user attributes to improve data integrations, directory usability, and provisioning flows?
    • Can you quickly spot users missing from or inappropriately belonging to Google domain groups and make bulk modifications to group membership?
    • Do you wish there were a more efficient way to bulk create users with the correct OU, Google groups, properties and settings?
    • Do you need to be able to quickly distribute passwords to staff points of contact on behalf of students?

Challenges that can block schools from effective G Suite user management practices

    • Organizing and bulk-moving large numbers of users from one org unit to another is time-consuming if performed in the Admin Panel.
    • Account passwords are difficult to bulk-reset and quickly distribute out to school staff.
    • Account suspensions and re-activations can be a chore to monitor and keep up with.
    • Limited search parameters in the Admin Panel make it a challenge to filter for users of interest — such as inactive or “never logged in” users — and then take bulk actions on them.
    • Useful Contact information, Employee information and Custom attributes go unused because they are too hard to bulk update.
    • Google domain groups go under-utilized, or they pose a security and communications challenge when they are unreliably maintained.
    • The bulk user creation process via CSV in the admin console is very inefficient at scale. Users must be created in root, then moved to the correct OU, then added to the correct groups, and there are many other properties — like contact directory visibility — that can only be edited one user at a time.
