G Suite is now Google Workspace

Last fall, Google rebranded G Suite as Google Workspace. While the core services haven’t changed, there are some nifty new features. Highlights include a simplified integration of Gmail, Docs, Drive and other Google apps you rely on everyday. For example, if a Google Doc or Sheet has a link to another file in Drive, you can hover over the link to preview the linked file. Read more about Google Workspace

Do you use the Zoom for G Suite* add-on?

If you use the Zoom for G Suite add-on, you’ll need to reauthorize its access to your contacts and the Fordham directory. If you do not use the add-on, you may ignore this message.

Zoom has made some upgrades to the add-on that require this reauthorization. You’ll only need to reauthorize one time.
