gPanel Announcement  

March 20, 2023, 10:00 am


What’s changing

In the continuing effort to build community and connection in hybrid work, today, gPanel® software launches the ability to set email alerts and reports for documents that have been shared externally by employees whose Workspace accounts have been deactivated. 


Who’s impacted 

Admins and end users


Why it’s important 

As employees exit an organization, it’s important to know what assets they’ve shared with external audiences. In some cases access to the documents needs to be revoked, or perhaps ownership needs to be reassigned to a current employee.


This highly requested feature gives gPanel Admins visibility into those shared documents, including reports as well as email alerts. Admins can select to have notifications go to the hiring manager or anyone else within their organization. 


Rollout pace 

Deployed to gPanel Standard and Enterprise on March 20, 2023.

New Calendar Transfer Feature

A new Calendar Transfer feature has been added to the Calendars section of gPanel. This feature allows the bulk transfer of events from one user to another user. This feature will only transfer future, non-private events with at least 1 guest or resource. Learn how to complete a calendar transfer with this help article.

May 13

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?

April 3

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!
