You can either browse or search to find a user account. In summary:
- Browse: Click the Organization & users tab from the top menu. Select an organization from the organizational structure on the left.
- Search: Enter the email address or name of the user in the search box at the top of the Google Admin console, and click Search accounts.
Then click the row for the user account to display and edit the user information page.
By default, search looks for email addresses and first and last names whose name starts with the value provided. The value supplied can be a either a complete or a partial match as long as it's found at the beginning of the record (and not the middle or end). For instance, a query of "bert" will return results for "Bert" and "Bertrand" and but not "Robert." No duplicates should appear in the result. For example, the user(firstname.lastname@example.org firstname=bert) should appear only once when we search for “bert”.
Search also provides a variety of operators to help you refine your query for records (usernames, first names, last names, nicknames and groups). Include any of these operators followed by a colon and the expected value to narrow your search.
Here are some examples.
The following simple non-operator query returns all user accounts containing usernames, first names, and last names starting with "bert."
This domain operator query returns all accounts in the domain example.com:
This firstname operator query returns all accounts whose first name starts with "rob":
This lastname operator query returns all accounts whose last name starts with "smith":
You may use all of these operators in conjunction with one another to further narrow your query.
This combined email and domain query returns all accounts whose email ID start with "rob" in the domain example.com. Note the records may also be sorted if the query contains the email operator:
The same can be done for first names by domain:
And last names:
The following combined email, firstname, and domain operator query returns all accounts where the email address starts with "bill," the firstname starts with "bob," and the domain starts with "example."
email:rob firstname:bob domain:example.com
Note that groups are searched only when the email operator is included, like so:
firstname:bob lastname:smith email:rob
