Better User Admin for Google Apps

Back in April, Google released Google Apps Directory Sync, a tool that lets Google Apps administrators add, remove, and change Google Apps accounts automatically as changes are made to the directory service on the local network. The tool works with Microsoft Active Directory and Lotus Domino.

A few weeks ago, Google release a significant upgrade that includes:
  • The ability to synchronize non-employees (i.e. contacts) kept in the central directory.
  • Inclusion of more fields from contact records, including email addresses, phone numbers, etc.
The addition of these features enhances and further simplifies administration of Google Apps in a managed network environment.
