At launch, confidential mode will be set to default ON for all domains with Gmail enabled, unless you choose to disable this feature (see instructions below).

Additionally, with confidential mode, recipients don’t have the option to forward, copy, print, or download thei…

What’s changing We’re making changes to how we calculate active users across G Suite applications in your organization. Specifically, you’ll see more accurate metrics on active users for the following applications:

Gmail Calendar Hangouts Chat Hangouts Meet 
Who’s impacted Admins only
Why this matters Previously, we pulled app activity data from multiple sources, which sometimes resulted in discrepancies across reporting tools, like Work Insights and the Reports section of the Admin console. To ensure these metrics are consistent, we'll now pull data from one centralized, reliable source which is based on direct user interaction logs. This will help you better analyze app usage in your domain and assess your organization's needs.
How to get started 
Admins: To access Apps usage activity in the Admin console click Reports. From there, you can see app usage overall, or click into specific apps. On the right-hand side, you can filt…
