First, there was no category that fit this comment so I apologize in advance if this comment doesn't seem to fit here. I didn't know where else to put it.
I just received an email from G Suite for Education saying that G Suite for Education does not support Brand Accounts and that any Brand Accounts created with a G Suite for Education account and all content would be removed by July 10th.
First, nothing prevented us from creating and using these brand accounts for the past 2 years and nothing that I could find stated it was not permitted so why is the carpet being pulled out from under us now.
Second, why would someone at Google think that Schools don't have a need for Brand Accounts. Brand Accounts are perfect for schools. The School needs a YouTube Channel that can be managed by multiple users, not just one individual. Athletic teams, need YouTube channels that coaches can upload training videos too. Athletes need to watch videos provided by their coaches and shouldn't need to go hunting for those videos across multiple user channels. One Channel for the team that all coaches can contribute too makes the most sense. Having multiple users manage content for a channel is exactly what Brand Accounts allow you to do, and it even says so on "What is a brand account?" in Google Help.
I know this will probably fall on def ears and no one at Google will pay attention but wow, with 80 million teachers and students using G Suite, I can believe we're the only school that has found Brand Accounts incredibly useful.
