Google Workplace is a suite of online products from Google that help you with a variety of tasks. It includes, among others, Gmail, Google Drive, Google File Stream, and Google Calendar. Together, these products form the backbone of many daily tasks, and because they are all from Google, they have interoperability in a variety of ways.
Before you start the course, it’s important to know that there are a few buttons that are similar across all products. They will appear at the top of Gmail, Drive, and Calendar, for example.
Of note –
The “Google Apps” button:
The Google Apps button allows you to easily open another product under the same username. So, for example, if you are signed in to Google Calendar, you can click here, and select Gmail, and it will open a new tab and automatically sign you in to Gmail (see image below). You can do this for any Google product.
The “Settings” Cogwheel:
In any Google product, you can access settings specific to that product from this icon on the top right. Many people like to customize, for example, their Gmail layout. You can find such settings here.
The “More Options” Icon:
Within many Google products, you will also see this icon. It shows additional options related to what you are currently viewing.
