The purpose of this thread is to continue the conversation from the Virtual User Group on the topic of System Admin Best Practices on January 19, 2021. In this session we did a deep dive on Enablement, how you enable your own users, and how you stay up to date yourself as an Admin.
Many thanks to everyone who came to our virtual meetup! Special thanks to our roundtable presenters @Christa Levine‚, @Heather Kulbacki‚ and @Kasia Osipowicz‚.
As promised, attached is a PDF of the presentation with everyone’s tips, and you can watch the recording here.
Do you have any outstanding questions? Was there a tip that was especially helpful that you picked up in the session? Leave a comment below and we’ll keep the conversation going!

Hi All. Thank you for all the questions at today's virtual user group. It was great to present all the hard work we have been putting in at Google. I have attached a PDF version of the Onboarding form that was referenced in my presentation. Feel free to reach out if you all have further questions!
@Kristin Farwell‚ - thanks for the opportunity to present
Stay safe and healthy
@Sheri Whitten‚ - There has been a lot of thought from all Google Admins to get this right for our users. Glad that you find it so helpful!
I'm also very interested in the Landing Pages used by your company, thanks for sharing this.
May I ask what you refer to when you click 'Major Snippets' and 'Team Snippets' beneath 'Top Level Dashboards'?
@Femke Crijns‚ Happy to share. Please let me know if you would like to meet to discuss the Landing Pages more. The links you are referring to are essentially status dashboards (or reports) that the PMs will need to review to ensure that management is seeing the most updated information.
How did you guys create those landing pages in WF, those are slick and my users would benefit greatly from something like this, especially for onboarding and directing to reporting? Are they a series of report types used to make the colors/boxes then placed on a dashboard? I'd love to meet for 30 mins to learn more how this was done, your team is amazing!
@Kurt Jones‚ Hi Kurt. Sorry for the late reply. Happy to meet with you and discuss landing pages. They are great for our users. Go ahead and ping me and we can set up some time after the Thanksgiving holiday!
@Dave Koch‚ - Hi Dave. Essentially these landing pages use Google sheets and are embedded in a dashboard as an external link! This way the users can easily manage the content on the Google Sheet and it will appear on their dashboard. You just need to manipulate the width/ height. If you use Sharepoint, there are going to be more administrative set ups (aka need to add to the allow list) to get this work. Happy to meet with you to discuss further if needed - feel free to ping me seperately!
@Kurt Jones‚ - FYI for you as well!
