Google Apps admins now have the ability to set the default state for profile discoverability in their domain through a control in the admin console. The setting is available for customers who have enabled Premium Features. It is checked by default (i.e., profiles are discoverable in public web searches).
- All users with discoverability on will get the admin default
- All users with discoverability off will be unaffected by the default (since they explicitly set it off)
Example 1: User has set profile to be discoverable prior to launch, admin changes default setting to not be discoverable, user’s setting changes to not be discoverable
Example 2: User has set profile to not be discoverable prior to launch, admin changes default setting to not be discoverable, user’s setting does not change
- Changing the admin default will change the users setting if the user has not yet set discoverability
- Once a user manually sets their profile discoverability setting (off or on), that setting persists even if the admin default is modified
Example: User has set profile to be discoverable after launch, admin changes default setting to not be discoverable, user’s setting does not change
Note: In domains where an admin sets profile discoverability to be off by default (i.e., unchecks the setting), users may still want to be able to discover their co-workers in the same domain. To enable this functionality, we extended Google+ to leverage contact sharing. If the admin has enabled contact sharing for services such as Gmail then co-workers will be suggested in autocomplete results irrespective of their discoverability setting.
