As the administrator for your organization, you control which products, applications, and services are available to users:
- For products that you pay for, you receive a certain number of user licenses for that product. You assign licenses to the users you want to be able to use the product.
- For all products (paid and free), you can turn the service on or off for all users or for users in specific organizational units. You can also specify whether new Google applications and services are on or off by default.
- For applications and services that come as part of Google Apps, you can enable or disable them at the level of your entire Google Apps account, so that they are available to all users.
- For the Google Admin console, you grant a user access to some or all of its features by assigning an administrator role to him or her.
Most paid products include configurable settings that control how the product works for your users — for example, an administrator setting for Google Drive specifies whether users can share documents outside your organization. Some settings apply to all users in your organization, but you can configure others differently for different users. See Configure applications for different users for more information.
