Set up Cloud Search for your team

Google Cloud Search makes it easy for your team to search across their G Suite services, including Drive, Gmail, Calendar, Sites, and Groups. People can quickly find all the information they need at once.

Are you ready to start using Cloud Search with your G Suite team? To get started, see steps below.

As a G Suite administrator...

  1. Turn on Cloud Search
    Control who in your organization can search your domain's content. Turn on the Cloud Search service for everyone or only for specific teams.
  2. Turn on Web History for your users
    Your users can enjoy a customized search experience and more relevant suggestions when you turn on the Web History service in your organization.
  3. Whitelist the mobile app for your users

    If your organization manages mobile devices, you need to whitelist the Cloud Search app so your users can install the app on their work devices.

  4. Update your user profiles
    Your team’s profiles automatically show up in search results when you add contact and employee details to their user accounts and turn on the global Directory for your domain.
  5. View usage reports
    Review how your organization is using Cloud Search, including the number of search queries from different types of devices and the number of active users for a specific period.
  6. Support your users
    Get resources for training your team to use Cloud Search.
