Overview

Workspace Google Groups group together users so they can be more easily managed within the Workspace cloud environment. Sometimes there are so many Google Groups you begin by losing track of their settings or members.

GAT+ provides a range of options to audit Workspace Google Groups. With GAT+ you can find any Google Group to see its current settings and permissions. Then we allow Workspace Super admins or delegated auditors to be able to modify these settings on an ad hoc basis.

Searching for a Google Group

To find details of a Google Group, you can apply a custom filter to search through the metadata that GAT+ has indexed.

Go to the GAT+ → Groups audit → Groups tab. Click on the Apply filters button.
