Google in the enterprise?
December 27, 2012 2:24 PM   Subscribe

Is there a way to define a group of people on which to grant a permission within Google Apps for Domains?

We're fortunate enough to have a grandfathered free account where I work with enough users in different roles that groupings are important. As best I can tell, the access controls are

1) everyone in the world
2) everyone in the organization
3) an enumerated set of people.

What I'm looking for is a shorthand for enumerated sets of people; "managers", "marketing," "developers", that sort of thing. Am I missing something, or does gApps not have this?

Intriguing, but that appears to be about custom admins, rather than Google Drive objects. Apologies for not being clear.

I don't know what you mean by google drive objects.

Spreadsheets. Word Documents. Presentations. Files, mainly. But potentially calendars and other gApps stuff.

Final update from the OP:
So I finally got it figured out; Google Groups behave slightly differently than expected in Google Apps for Business. And they're slightly hidden in the admin dashboard. Just define a group, add some people to it, and when you add the address to a calendar or folder, it'll show up as a separate group icon.
