You can create admin roles as per your task and limited access as per OUs.


Hello Everyone, Welcome back to may tutorials on Google apps. In this tutorials i will let you know how you can create user created roles in Google apps, so similarly as in a previous tutorials we will go inside admin roles. In this module you can see i do not have any user created roles. I click on this option here Create a new role. I define a role suppose, i defined it as lannister helpdesk. You can give any description. You should not give lannister helpdesk here. As you can give according to your requirement and your organisation structure, I will hit on create, now you have to define the privileges here. It is very user friendly as you can see. You can go step by step and you can see what you have to do next. I give this role full privileges on the organisational units, then on the user section give only read privileges and i give it full privileges on group and full privileges to reports and click on save changes, and you see lannister help-desk role has been created. User created role has been successfully created. Now when i click here i can assign admins. I will assign admin here, confirm assignment. So this is almost the same as i told in system roles. Only thing in user created roles is you can defined your own privileges but in system roles the privileges has been custom defined from Google. I think you understood well what is the difference between system role and user created roles. You can share subscribe and comment if you have any feedback for me.
