Introducing and accessing your workspace admin area
The Google Workspace admin panel is where we control all the features of our account. This includes creating and deleting users, appointing admins to help manage the account to possibly take care of their own departments.
If you’re following on from the previous guide about setting up a Workspace for business account, this will be the first look at the admin panel.
Firstly: after looking at ways of accessing the admin area, and as you may be using the 14 day free trial, I’m going to go over deleting, upgrading and downgrading your account using the admin panel.The quickest way to create a Workspace account View all Workspace admin guides
how to access your Workspace admin panel
When creating your account, you may have been given the option to create a new Chrome browser profile. Doing so makes life easier when we may want to have multiple accounts open at one time.
If you did take up the option, when you sign in to the account, the browser may contain a shortcut to your admin panel.
Don’t be alarmed if your browser doesn't look the same as mine. I’ve already begun to customise it. If you're new to Chrome why not find out how to customize your Chrome browser
Another option to sign in to your admin panel lies in the top right of your browser. Click on the nine dot icon to open the app menu. Then scroll to the Admin link.
You may notice that my apps listings aren’t in the same order as yours. That’s okay, you can drag and drop the icons around to put the most frequently accessed near the top.
Note: even if you’re signed in to your account, you’ll still have to sign into the admin area each time you access it. The image below shows what happens when you attempt to sign in.
Don’t be overwhelmed the first time you enter the admin area, although there’s a lot to take in, and Google doesn’t do a very good job of explaining it, you’ll soon get the hang of it.
