Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) on Wednesday announced an update to the admin console for Google Apps users. This new update features logical groupings, drag and drop options and a new direct URL to access the admin interface faster.
Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) says that users would now be able to accomplish tasks faster with the help of new logical groupings that helps users to navigate to the right setting as quick as possible. For example; the delegated administration setting is right under the Admin Roles control.
The second feature or rather an update is that admins can now easily drag and drop the controls they need into their preferred place. Admins can also remove options they don’t need from the Admin console.
Lastly, the admin console is now more easily accessible, and easy to remember with this short URL: admin.google.com. Simply visit this link and login directly to your Google Apps admin console.
Now you don’t need to remember the long URL like google.com/a/domain.com or search for the “manage domain” link in Gmail. Just visit this new URL and start managing Google apps. Well, as they say, it’s better late than never. This new URL is surely more easy to remember than the previous long URL.
