Google has updated the Admin console for its Google Apps services for business with reporting capabilities to enable managers to see key information on activity and resource usage across their organisation.
Available now, the new Reports section in the Admin console makes it easier for admins to manage Google Apps and gain insights to help their organisation run more efficiently using the services, Google said.
In a blog posting on Google's Official Enterprise Blog announcing the new admin capabilties, Google Apps product manager Rishi Dhand explained how the Highlights page in the Reports section offers administrators an overview of all the activity across their domain, while allowing them to drill down for more detail.
"You can see how many Hangouts, Docs, Sheets and Slides your organisation created, who is close to reaching their Drive and Gmail storage quota and how many files have been shared outside the company. You can also export any report to Google Sheets to slice and dice your data for further analysis," he said.
Meanwhile, drilling down to the Apps Usage Activity page enables the admin to see data on how individual users are working with Gmail, Drive, storage and other apps.
Also new is a Login Audit page that enables the administrator to monitor security concerns by reviewing the specific IP addresses and dates of all logins and any failed or suspicious logins. This data enables managers to track suspicious activity and take actions such as resetting passwords, according to Google.
The firm said that it has "many additions" for its Reports section planned for the future, including mobile data coming soon, but that users can revert to the old Reports page if necessary.
