Google Introduces Work Insights and the Investigation Tool

Have you ever wondered if your G Suite subscription is actually being put to good use?


Work Insights is a new tool to that lets you see how much impact G Suite is making on your organization. It does this by showing you data on which teams are using G Suite and which apps they use frequently, how they are using the apps to collaborate, how much time the teams are spending in meetings, and much more. Essentially, Work Insights gives you an overview of how G Suite enables your team members to work together.

Admins can look at adoption charts in Work Insights to analyze trends and track deployment progress. This data is useful for bench-marking and for identifying which team members may need additional training on applications. This can be especially relevant if your organization is shifting from legacy tools to G Suite.

Currently in beta, Work Insights is available to organizations subscribed to G Suite Enterprise or Enterprise for Education. G Suite admins who want to try it now can fill out the Beta Test Application form.

Are you aware of potential security risks within your G Suite domain?


Google understands every organization's need for simplified security management. The security center, which they introduced earlier this year, brings together security analytics, actionable insights, and best practice recommendations. Recently, they announced the general availability of the new investigation tool which integrates remediation to the prevention and detection features of the security center. G Suite admins can use the new investigation tool to identify suspicious device activity, find out if classified Google Drive documents have been shared to outsiders and hence cut access, remove emails that can compromise account security, and more.

The investigation tool has a simple user interface. Admins can identify threats and take action with a few clicks--no need to analyze logs or run complex scripts.

The investigation tool is now available to G Suite Enterprise customers.
