Decommissioning Update

On September 29, 2020, a new version of decommissioning will be pushed live. This is the first of many changes coming to the decommissioning section of gPanel. If there is a decommissioning policy you would like to see added, please submit a feature request with your account manager.

What's changing?

  • Decommissioning policies will have the ability to be enabled and disabled. If you have any existing policies they will be defaulted to active.

  • The process that is running decommissioning is being upgraded. All actions will be run serially. Previously some actions ran in parallel, that will no longer be the case. This will provide a more consistent order of operations for the decommissioning actions to follow.

  • In log view, all buttons and actions will be rolled up into an actions menu in the top right.

  • Decommissioning actions will have the ability to be set as complete. If a decommissioning action fails and an admin wants to take care of that action outside of the policy, the admin can complete it and the policy will move on.

  • Previously the delete user action would process regardless of logs being acknowledged. In the new version, the delete user action will have the optional step of having the logs acknowledged before deleting the user.

  • The document transfer action will be using Google’s Data Transfer API for processing. This will transfer all documents owned by the decommissioned user.

  • The calendar transfer action will be using Google’s Data Transfer API for processing. Previously all calendars were transferred, but in the new version only the primary calendar will be transferred.

Drive Transfer Update

Drive Transfer is getting an update next week on Tuesday, May 19. We are switching to the latest and greatest API from Google, which is a Data Transfer API. This means that Drive Transfer in gPanel will be changing slightly.

This feature will be in the same place, it will just look and act different. You will simply choose the original user and then the new user that you'd like to transfer the Drive to.

What's Changing?

  • Previously you were able to choose between transferring all docs or a particular folder. In the new functionality the entire Drive will be transferred to the destination user.

  • Previously you were able to choose an action to take on the transferring document’s shares. For example, you could leave the previous owner as an editor or viewer. In the new functionality there will not be an option to choose an action and the previous owner will be left as an editor.

New UI for Resource Calendars Beta

We are excited to let you know that we are in the process of redesigning gPanel to help you manage your domain faster and easier than ever before. The new design will be simple, modern, and easy to use. We will be continually rolling out the new UI as more features are updated.

The first section that has been updated with the new UI is Resource Calendars Beta. All functionality of this feature is staying exactly the same—the only thing changing is the design. This feature will be staying in beta for 30 days and then will be released to everyone.

Stay tuned for more updates and resources regarding the new UI!
