We're blushing... Prescient Power shows off a Solve360 report we built in the forums

We've been building custom reports like this with Google Apps Script in Google Spreadsheets for customers since 2010.  This is the first time our work has shown up in the forums.  Thank you Carl for sharing this!

You can view the forum thread at http://norada.com/forums/viewthread/2663/.  Scroll down to Nov. 20th, 2011

"wow - I guess Interlockit have some wizardry in their team!  Nice report - this is exactly what I need."

"These custom reports are a really nice touch. Well done to interlockit for demonstrating this capability."

"Just superb for management reporting and KPI tracking - forcing the “so what?“ question much more than you might expect."

Lifehacker says "Gmail is the best email client around"

Lifehacker says "Gmail is the best email client around..." and provides some advanced tips in today's posting. Note Google Apps users should install "Google Apps desktop features" from Advanced Tools in your Google Apps Administrator Control Panel instead of the other notifier utilities mentioned for changing your default email client on Windows. Also SmartLabels we think overcomplicates things so not recommended. Otherwise lots of advanced tips to help make you a Gmail Ninja.

Gmail app for iOS available in the App Store

We've been using this since it was originally released on Nov. 2nd. Definitely recommended for Google Apps users on iPhone or iPad. You get the familiar Gmail user interface both on-line and offline... and this was developed nearby by Canadian Google Engineers.

P.S. You can also see this post on Google+

More flexible mobile device management with Google Apps

Security and management of mobile devices has been holding back many corporate enterprises from embracing iOS devices such as the iPhone and iPad.

Google just enhanced the ability to manage iOS and Android devices from Google Apps: http://googleenterprise.blogspot.com/2011/11/more-flexible-mobile-device-management.html

No servers required; just turn it on.

You can still use Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES) for managing your Blackberry devices with Google Apps.
