Improved accessibility, editing and ease of use in Google Sites

Several accessibility improvements have been made to Google Sites, ranging from new keyboard shortcuts for editors (like Alt+Shift+F for opening the editor toolbar) to better viewing experiences for readers. Editors can now also set image width to 100% of the screen width and easily customize the font, color, and size of lower-level headers (H2, H3, and H4 tags).*

 

Release Track:

Rapid release, with Scheduled release coming later in June [*customization of lower-level headers was previously launched to Rapid only and is now launching to Scheduled]

Cloud based migration of email to Google Apps

Starting this week, we are making it easier for businesses to migrate email into Google Apps using our cloud-based data migration service. The data migration service can be configured via the Admin console to connect to your mail server and migrate email over to Google’s Gmail servers. You no longer need to download tools like Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Exchange and install them on local servers. In addition, you can also monitor and track your migration from anywhere by logging into your Admin console.

The data migration service currently works for email. Support for contacts and calendar migration is currently being developed.

The email migration feature will be rolled out to all domains over a period of 2 weeks.

Domain management of Google Drive Apps

Last year, we launched a new and improved Google Apps Marketplace experience, allowing admins to be able to find, manage and deploy third-party applications directly from the Google Apps Admin Console.

Earlier this year, we launched the ability for admins to allow their users to install applications that integrate with Google Drive. If this setting was disabled, however, admins were not able to install Marketplace apps that integrate with Drive.

With today’s launch, Marketplace applications deployed by admins will be able to integrate with Google Drive for users who are provided with the app, even if this Admin Console setting is disabled. In essence, admins can now whitelist the Drive applications that their users can install.

Rapid release and Scheduled release
