U-M Google October Updates

posted Nov 3, 2016, 11:48 AM by Amanda Hudeck


The monthly U-M Google Updates inform users about what is happening with Google releases for both Core Apps (Google applications that fall under the G Suite for Education agreement and do NOT require separate terms of service or privacy policy), as well as the Non-Core Apps (those that are not part of the G Suite for Education agreement). We will continue to communicate important information on Core Apps throughout the month as well. For a list of Core and Non-Core Apps, see the U-M Google List of Services page.

Core Apps:

  • Learn about your co-workers in the context of the Android apps you use every day. When you tap on a profile photo, the information that’s available in the Google UMICH directory will be shown in the new “Directory” card, showing you more information about the person.

  • New! Page numbers are now an option for table of contents. To enable page numbers, select the numbered option when inserting a table of contents from the Insert menu.

Previously Communicated:

  • New ways to reach your goals with G Suite. G Suite (formerly Google Apps) recently introduced new features designed to speed up and simplify the way you work.

  • New way to view email headers. You can now can can see where an email originated by looking at its headers. This includes showing how it got from the sender to the recipient's email servers.

  • Explore in Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Explore is now available in Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Explore uses Google smarts to help you create presentations, spreadsheets, and documents. It’s like having your own researcher, analyst, and designer.

Note: Keep in mind that even when non-core apps are found in a core app (like Google Drive), they are not covered by the G Suite for Education agreement.
