Gooru Tip - Maximize the video player and adjust video quality for optimal viewing!
One of our favorite third-party tools, FlashPanel, has integrated an admin tool into the chat feature for Google Apps. This tool, called the Apps Butler, allows admins to immediately recall employee contact info and broadcast messages to their entire organizations while using Google Chat. There are a number of great features that the Apps Butler provides, but I’m going to walk you through the broadcast process below.
1. Make sure you, and everyone in your organization has enabled chat with the Apps Butler
2. Open a Google Chat window with the Apps Butler
3. Type: /broadcast (your message here) to send a quick message to your organization
- For example, to notify everyone of an important upcoming meeting, I would type: /broadcast meeting in the conference room in 5 minutes.
I hope you enjoyed this introduction to FlashPanel and Apps Butler, and as always, leave us a message in the comments section below if you have any questions. Thanks!
