Find a user account
To change a user's password, give them an alternate email address, or otherwise manage their personal settings, access their user account in your Google Admin console. You can quickly find an account in the Admin console either by browsing the user list or searching.
- Sign in to the Google Admin console.
- Do one of the following:
- Browse: From the dashboard, click Users. If necessary, select the organizational unit the user belongs to. Then look for the user in the user list.
- Search: Enter the user's name or email address in the search box at the top of the console.
By default, 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 for user accounts based on other criteria or narrow down your search by using any of the following operators. Enter an operator, followed by a colon and your search text.
|domain||In a specific domain||domain:example.com|
|Whose email addresses match your search text||email:email@example.com|
|firstname||Whose first names match your search text||firstname:rob|
|lastname||Whose last names match your search text||lastname:smith|
Enter two or more search operators to narrow your search even further.
|domain:example.com email:rob||In example.com whose email addresses start with rob|
|domain:example.com firstname:rob||In example.com whose first names start with rob|
|firstname:rob lastname:smith||Whose first names start with rob and last names start with smith|
|domain:example.com email:rob firstname:bob||In example.com whose email addresses start with rob and firstnames start with bob.|
