Managing access to services

When you sign up for a Google Cloud product like G Suite, its services are typically added to your account and turned On for your users. Your users also have access to several free Google services and any services you add from the G Suite Marketplace. In many cases, you don't have to do anything to make these services available to users. But some services might need to be enabled. Or you might want to turn Off services you don't want people to use. 

To manage which services your organization can use:

Turn services On or Off for users

Use your Admin console to turn individual services On or Off—either for all users, or for users in specific organizational units. Only users with the service turned On will be able to use the service.

Assign user licenses for products you purchase

If you purchase more than one Google Cloud product, such as G Suite and Google My Maps Pro, you receive a certain number of user licenses for each product. You must then assign licenses to the people who should use that product. This applies only if you've purchased multiple Google products.

A few G Suite services need to be added to your account before you can turn them On. These include Google Groups for Business and purchasing more Drive storage. For details, see Add services to your account. You can also remove a G Suite service you don't want anyone to use (although simply turning the service Off for everyone has the same result).
