Plan your rollout to users

To help your organization make the switch to Google Apps, we've prepared learning resources you can deploy to your Google Apps users both leading up to and during your transition.

Here's what we recommend:

  1. Familiarize your team with Apps
    Direct your team to our Learning Center, where they can view and download quick-start guides and tips to get started with Gmail, Calendar, and the other Google Apps.
  2. Deploy a support site
    Use Sites to quickly build a Google Apps learning center for your organization. Direct users there at launch time to get them started using Google Apps. Alternately, skip building your own site and direct users to our Learning Center, which contains this same information.
  3. Send email announcements
    Keep users informed and set expectations by sending regular communications both before and during your deployment. Use our customizable email templates.
  4. Print Gmail switch guides
    Greet everyone on launch day with handy print-outs of key tips for switching to Gmail from Microsoft Outlook or IBM Notes.
  5. Learn more with product tips
    Smooth the transition by directing your team to our Learning Center Tips library, where they can find new ways of using Apps efficiently and even submit their own user tips.
  6. Inform users of Google Apps updates
    Encourage users to regularly visit our Learning Center for announcements of ongoing feature and product enhancements. Administrators can visit the Google Apps release calendar for all the latest product updates.

Find all these resources and more at Google Apps setup and deployment.
