Turn the Jamboard service on or off

To use Jamboard, you may need to turn it on in your Admin console (by default, it's turned on).

Before you begin: To turn a service on or off for certain users, put their accounts in an organizational unit (to control access by department) or add them to an access group (to allow access for users across or within departments).

To turn the Jamboard service on for your users:

  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, go to Apps and then G Suite and then Jamboard.
  3. Click Jamboard Service.
  4. Click Service status.
  5. To turn on or off a service for everyone in your organization, click On for everyone or Off for everyone, and then click Save.

  6. (Optional) To turn a service on or off for an organizational unit:

    1. At the left, select the organizational unit.
    2. Select On or Off.
    3. Click Override to keep your setting if the service for the parent organizational unit is changed.
    4. If Overridden is already set for the organizational unit, choose an option:
      • Inherit—Reverts to the same setting as its parent.
      • Save—Saves your new setting (even if the parent setting changes).

  7. To turn on a service for a set of users across or within organizational units, select an access group. For details, go to turn on a service for a group.

Changes typically take effect in minutes, but can take up to 24 hours. For details, see How changes propagate to Google services.
