Announcing Training for Google Apps

  Google Apps Updates:  Training for Google Apps is Rebranding to G Suite Training

Google is rebranding its Google Apps products to:  G Suite Training.  Whether you’ve just gone Google or have been using Google Apps for years, IT departments always have a need to train new users and keep them up to date on the latest technologies. In a perfect world, each employee would have helpful IT staff by their side to guide them every step of the way, but that’s not always possible, nor is it really practical. That’s why we are excited to announce G Suite Training, the newest training resource available to all Google Apps organizations.

 What is Training for Google Apps or G Suite Training?

Designed to be simple and efficient, Training for Google Apps or G Suite Training is a new interactive in-app learning experience to help users get quickly up and running with Google Apps. Built on the Google Cloud Platform, G Suite Training acts like a virtual coach inside of the Google Apps interface. Users have access to voice and text interactive modules that are searchable by topic within any of the Google Apps products, which includes Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Google+, and even Classroom.

  How can Training for Google Apps help me?

Based on our customer studies, we’ve seen that organizations that deploy G Suite Training see an average of 35 percent higher adoption across Apps products. Here are a few examples of things you can quickly get your admins and end-users trained on:
  • Setting up your email signature
  • Recovering Deleted Email
  • Set Expiring Dates for Shared Documents
  • And hundreds more

The In-App Experience is extremely helpful: Training is accessible within Google Apps, you don't have to leave the application to learn how to use it.
