Suspend a user
You can temporarily block a user's access to your organization's Google services by suspending their account. When you suspend an account, the user's:
- Email, documents, calendars, or other data aren't deleted. However, the user's Google+ posts and comments might be deleted if the account remains suspended for at least 30 days.
- Shared documents are still accessible to collaborators.
- New email and calendar invitations are blocked.
Note: If Google initiated an account suspension, rather than an administrator, email might still be delivered, depending on the context of the suspension.
After suspending a user, you can restore the account at any time.

Suspend the user's account
Sign in to your Google Admin console.
Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).
- From the Admin console dashboard, go to Users.
- Next to the user you want to suspend, click and choose Suspend.
- Click again to confirm.
If you suspend a user's account while they're in a chat or Hangout, the user can keep participating until the session is over.
