Find a user account

To manage a user's settings, go to their account page in your Google Admin console. Here, you can do things like change a user's password, give them another email address, and more.

Browse to a user's account page

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

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

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Users.
  3. Locate the user in the list. Then click the name to open their account page.



     

    Tip: If users are grouped in organizational units, you can browse more quickly by first selecting the organizational unit they belong to. You might need to click  at the upper left to see organizational units.

Filter the Users list 

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

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

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Users.
  3. Click in the Filter by box above the Users list.


    Find this option at the top of the user list

  4. Do one of the following:
    • Select a category by which to filter the list, such as First name, Last name, Email, and so on. Select an option or enter the filter text, and click Apply.
    • Start typing characters for the filter you want to use, such as a first name, last name, or username. When you see the filter you want, select it.
  5. In the filter results, click the name to open their account page.


Search for a user's account page

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

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

  2. In the search box at the top of your Admin console, type the user's name or email address.
  3. In the list of matching accounts that appears, click an account to go to its page.

Search looks for addresses and first and last names that begin with your search text. It doesn't look for text in the middle or end of an address or name. For example, searching for bert returns results for Bert and Bertrand but not for Robert.

Search shortcuts and tips

Use search operators to narrow your search

Search for user accounts based on other criteria or narrow down your search by using any of the following operators. Enter an operator, followed by an equal (=) sign and your search text.

Operator Finds users... Examples
domain In a specific domain domain=example.com
email Whose email addresses match your search text email=rob@example.com
givenName Whose first names match your search text givenName=rob
familyName Whose last names match your search text familyName=smith

Tip: Searches can return group accounts, too. If you use search operators, however, you must include the email operator to return any group results, as in email=marketing.

See all search operators.

Combine search operators

Enter two or more search operators to narrow your search even further.

Example Finds users...
domain=example.com email=rob In example.com whose email addresses start with rob
domain=example.com givenName=rob In example.com whose first names start with rob
givenName=rob familyName=smith Whose first names start with rob and last names start with smith
domain=example.com email=rob givenName=bob In example.com whose email addresses start with rob and first names start with bob.
