How to Add Users to G Suite

Add Users to G SuiteThere are more similarities between free, consumer Gmail and G Suite than there are differences. In fact, G Suite can be viewed as a multi-user version of consumer Gmail.

When a single user platform becomes multi-user, an administrative layer is needed for tasks such as adding and deleting users, creating groups, assigning apps and managing security.

Fortunately, adding users to G Suite is a straightforward process for an admin. The creator of a G Suite account is a Super Admin by default. One or more admin roles can optionally be assigned to any user. One of the admin roles is called User Management Admin. This role allows a user to create, delete and update users — so, someone other than a Super Admin can be responsible for adding and removing users.

Here are video and text instructions.

Step 1

Go to the admin console at http://admin.google.com. You can also navigate to the console from within Gmail by clicking on the gear icon and selecting Manage This Domain.
