Google Workspace is an integration that gives users access to their Google tools within Brightspace. The Google Workspace widget displays users' emails, events, and documents on their Brightspace homepage. Learners can collaborate on activities using Google Docs and submit files to Assignments or ePortfolio using the Google File Picker. Instructors can easily share meeting invitations by inserting a Google Meet link in an Activity Feed post, or any other tool that supports Quicklinks.
As an administrator, you can manage the link between a Google account and any Brightspace user account. If your organization has preexisting Google accounts, you can connect a Google account to a Brightspace user. If your organization does not have preexisting Google accounts, you can use Brightspace to create them. You can also remove links between Google accounts and Brightspace user accounts.
Important: users can no longer perform the following Google Workspace actions while impersonating another user:
- Link or unlink Google accounts
- Use the Google File Picker
- Access Google Drive content topics
- Use the Google Workspace Widgets
- Use the Google Calendar Widget
