Customize the User Hub

You and your users can access the User Hub and find handy links to all frequently used apps. These apps include core apps from Google that can be downloaded to a mobile device, apps you installed for users by you as the administrator, apps that you've given them permission to install by themselves, and other Google apps for business users. The banner has a place for a custom message from you and for your contact information.

Open your User Hub

You and your users can sign in to the User Hub at https://apps.google.com/user/hub

When you sign in to the User Hub as an administrator, you can also quickly edit the custom message for your users, link to the Admin console, and download mobile apps. You may also want to consider installing recommended apps from Marketplace as well as applications developed by Google partners.
