Change service settings for different users

You can customize many service settings in the Google Admin console for different users in your organization. For example, you can let only your sales department publish Google Drive files on the web. To do this, place everyone in the sales department in their own organizational unit. Then, turn on publishing permissions just for that organizational unit.

Change settings for an organizational unit

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. Add an organizational unit for the users whose settings you want to change.
  3. Move users to the organizational unit.
  4. Go to the settings page for the service.
  5. Click a section to open the service settings you want to change.

    If the settings can be applied to different organizational units, your organization tree opens to the left.

  6. In the organization tree, select the organizational unit that contains your users.

    Initially, the organizational unit inherits the settings of its parent.

  7. Do one of the following actions:
    • To override the inherited value, change the setting and click Override (or click Save to update an override).
    • To return an overridden setting to its inherited value, just click Inherit.

    Text under the setting marks whether it's Overridden or Inherited.

Changes can take up to 24 hours but typically happen more quickly. Learn more
