Easily Enter Building Address into the Admin Console of G Suite

From the Admin Console of all the Editions of G Suite, Google is bringing an update for Adding the Building Address and Resources of a particular company. And it can only be accessed from the Admin Console.

Easily Enter Building Address into the Admin Console of G Suite

Google has launched an update to the Admin Console of G- Suite effective from 6 Feb’19. It can only be accessible by the Admin.

Based on feedback received from customers, Google decided to make changes in Admin Console under Building and Resources. As a G Suite Administrator, you can now input addresses, instead of latitude and longitude coordinates, to enter the locations of office buildings in the Admin console. For a G-Suite Admin, this is a more efficient and reliable way to manage multiple office locations and resources provided by the office.

What is the use of it?

Adding building address information immediately unlocks the automatic correction of rooms and resource time zones based on building address. This feature ensures that you have the correct data in the room insights dashboard. Additionally, with this change, G Suite app will now automatically set the correct time zones for all resources of those buildings, and help the user to see accurate usage by the time of day in the room insights dashboard.

In days to come, this feature may add an intelligence boost to other features such as Automatic Time Zone adjustment, while you are working from different Time Zone, Accurate directions from Calendar and Room Suggestions in nearby Buildings
