Google making it easier to effectively manage events of any size in Google Calendar begining Tuesday, event organizers working on large events with 200 or more guests, can now use Calendar on the web to export guest lists to Google Sheets, and can also view total number of attendees.
Invite large group mailing lists reliably: Previously, invites that included large group mailing lists wouldn’t update if membership in those groups changed.
And. going forward, when a group mailing list is invited to a newly-created event, “Calendar will automatically invite all new group members who join after the invite was sent and automatically remove members who leave.”
In addition, organizers of existing recurring large events, who would like to make the event dynamic, can do so via “the steps outlined in this Help Center article.”
Google also released Data Loss Prevention (DLP) in Team Drives, to already available in Google Drive, since January this year, that give G Suite Enterprise edition customers more control over how data is shared beyond their company.
With this launch, DLP analyzes all files in Team Drives for sensitive content, so you can set up policy-based actions that triggers when any sensitive content is detected.
G Suite admins, will also be able to control what content members of the team can share externally using easily configured rules and easily enforced policies.
Some important notes about Team Drives:
- Because Team Drives are owned by the domain, rather than individuals, existing DLP rules applied at the domain level will apply to Team Drives.
- If a DLP rule is assigned to an organizational unit or a group, then that rule will not apply to Team Drives.
- When files stored in a Team Drive are flagged by DLP rules, users outside of your organization will lose access to these files.
For detailed instructions on how to set up these rules and policies, visit the Help Center.
Update 08/10: Google released an update to both Jamboard devices and the app, that bring along recognized handwriting editing, GIF support, and also making it easier for G Suite admins to monitor their Jamboard devices.
People can now edit “recognized handwritten text” with stylus, allowing them quick deletion, insertion, and merging of the text.
To delete a text, “simply strike over the letter(s) to remove from a word. And, to insert write them either above or below the word and draw a small arrow to insert them.” For merging, “select a text object and drag it to another text object.”
Jamboard also now supports adding “GIF” images via Google Drive, and also now offer an ability to move objects to adjacent jam frames/pages by selecting and sliding them towards the left or right edge of the screen.
Lastly, an additional reporting is now added in the Jamboard admin console, so admins can now see historical data for Wi-Fi network strength (RSSI), Wi-Fi network speed, and board online/offline status in the Jamboard Admin console.
For a full list of new features and improvements from this month’s release, check out the What’s New in Jamboard page in the Help Center.

Update 08/11: Google enables anti-phishing security checks in the Gmail app for iOS, with that going forward when users click on a suspicious link in a Gmail on iPhone or iPad, a warning page will pop-up and warn you against visiting the original URL— see the screen shots below:
These warnings are intended to prevent harmful phishing attacks and help you keep your account safe.
Also, now whenever someone uses a third-party CalDAV-based calendaring client to access an event on Google Calendar, text to event’s description will automatically generate and will include instructions on how to join the event through Meet or Hangouts.
With this launch, “people using the CalDAV API, such as those on Apple’s calendar clients, no longer need to go to Google Calendar on the web to join their meetings.”
