Install mobile apps for Drive and Docs editors - Google Workspace Admin Help [gg-a-en]

Get started: Drive setup guide for admins

Install mobile apps for Drive and Docs editors

To work with files from your Android or iOS device, download mobile apps for Google Drive and the Docs editors.

Use the Drive mobile app to find and open files, share them, or do anything else you can do with Google Drive on a computer. Use the mobile Docs editors to edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.

Download the mobile apps

Each user who wants to work from their mobile device should download their own Android or iPhone & iPad apps. 

If you use Mobile Device Management

If your organization uses 3rd-party Mobile Device Management (MDM), update your application whitelists to ensure that the Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps are allowed in your organization. Check with your MDM provider to learn how.

If you don't allow the apps for your organization, your users can still upload and download files using Google Drive. But they can't edit documents, spreadsheets, or slides.

Deploy Backup and Sync - Google Workspace Admin Help [gg-a-en]

Deploy Backup and Sync

This article is for administrators. If you're using Google Drive with a work or school account and want to use Backup and Sync, contact your administrator. If you want to install Backup and Sync for your personal account, go to Back up & sync files with Drive.

You can synchronize local files to Google Drive on the web. Deploying Backup and Sync in your organization makes those files available on all your devices.

What can I sync?

When you install Backup and Sync, a new folder (named Google Drive) appears on your computer. Files in My Drive (and any subfolders you select) copy over to this new folder. Changes made in one folder are automatically reflected in the other.

You can also sync existing folders on your computer, such as Documents or Desktop. They appear in the Computers folder in Drive on the web. Other items you can sync:

  • USB devices and SD cards
  • Your photos and videos to Google Photos

Tip: To sync shared drive folders, use Google Drive for desktop. For details, go to Choose a sync solution.

Submit your tax information to Google - AdSense Help [gg-adsense-en]

Payments

Submit your tax information to Google

Depending on your location, Google may be required to collect tax-related information from you. If you do have to provide your tax information to Google, you can do so from your AdSense account. Not all publishers are required to provide tax information.

Note: Make sure you submit your tax information before the 20th to receive a payment in the same month.

How to submit your tax information

  1. Sign in to your AdSense account.
  2. Click Payments.
  3. Click Manage settings.
  4. Scroll to "Payments profile" and click edit Edit next to "United States tax info".
  5. Click Manage tax information.
  6. On this page you'll find a guide that will help you to select the appropriate form for your tax situation.
    Tip: After you submit your tax information, follow the instructions above to check the "United States tax info" section of your Payments profile to find the tax withholding rates that may apply to your payments.

    You'll also be able to make any edits in case your individual or business circumstances change. If you've changed your address, make sure your updated permanent address is the same in both sections: "Permanent residence address" and "Legal address". This will ensure that your year-end tax forms (e.g., 1099-MISC, 1099-K, 1042-S) are delivered to the correct location. If you're in the US, you must resubmit your W-9 form with your updated legal address

Note: If you use AdSense to monetize on YouTube, visit US tax requirements for YouTube earnings to understand the US tax requirements for your US earnings.

Notes

Changing your name

The name in your payments profile is not linked to your tax forms. If your name changes, you'll need to update your tax information in addition to your payments profile information.

Payments

If your payments are on hold because you're required to enter tax information, and you provide your tax information after the 20th of the month, you won't be eligible to receive a payment in that month's payment cycle. If your tax information is provided after the 20th, your earnings will rollover to the following month and you'll be issued a payment in the next payment cycle.

Per our payment timeline, monthly payments are issued between the 21st and the 26th, as long you have met the payment threshold and all holds are removed by the 20th.

Tip: We recommend that all publishers regularly verify the accuracy of their tax information. Google is not responsible for confirming or updating publisher tax information. For specific information regarding US tax requirements, visit the IRS website.

Overview: Manage Drive for an organization - Google Workspace Admin Help [gg-a-en]

Overview: Manage Drive for an organization

Your organization can use Google Drive as a single place to store and share files.

Learn more about Google Drive features.  

Access files from anywhere

With Google Drive, people in your organization can get to their files from any device that has Drive on it.

  • Computer's web browser—Signing up for Drive gives you Google Drive on the web, an online app that runs in any web browser, on any computer.
  • Mobile device—Users can download the Google Drive mobile app on Android or iOS to access files on their mobile device.
  • Windows or Mac computer—You can install a Google Drive sync application to stream or sync Drive files to your Windows or Mac computer.

Manage and share all file types

You can use Google Drive to store and access all files, including:

  • All your work files—Store PDF or Microsoft Word documents, Excel worksheets, music files, photos, videos, and more. View many file types in your browser, even if you don't have their program on your computer. 
  • Documents you create and edit online—Use web-based Google Docs editors to create text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, and forms. Editors include Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Each editor is a separate app that users can also open from Drive.

    Note: Google Drive and each of the Docs editors are separate apps. But as admin, you manage their settings from a single Drive and Docs service in your Google Admin console.

  • Custom maps you create and share—Use Google My Maps, for example, to share your company's location, plan events, or show delivery routes. 

Administrative controls

As a Drive admin, you can use your Google Admin console to:

  • Track usage and trends—Use the Drive Audit log to monitor your team's use of the Docs editors. Track how many documents people are creating, who's using which types of documents, and more.
  • Manage document sharing for your team—Control how documents are shared by default or whether users can share documents outside of your organization.
  • Manage storage space—Each user gets either 30 GB or unlimited storage space, depending on your edition. As an admin, you can buy licenses to grant some users even more storage. Or, you can let users buy their own extra storage.
  • Transfer ownership of documents—If someone leaves your organization or changes roles, use your Admin console to transfer their documents to someone else on your team.

Get started with our Meet, Drive, and Chat package

If your organization wants to use Google Meet, Drive, and Chat , but you don't need Gmail, sign up for Essentials. You can get Meet, Drive, and Chat features and administrative controls, but without the cost of Google Workspace services you don't need.

What kind of content can I monetize? - YouTube Help [gg-youtube-en]

What kind of content can I monetize?

For your videos to be eligible for monetization, you must own all the rights to commercially use all visuals and audio elements.

Guidelines for content you created:

  • Follow YouTube Community Guidelines.
  • Create all elements of the video yourself. Examples include:
    • Daily vlogs
    • Home videos
    • Do-it-yourself videos
    • Tutorials
    • Original music videos
    • Original short films
  • Make sure you own all the necessary rights to commercially use all visuals created by you.
  • Keep in mind that advertisers are more likely to place ads on advertiser-friendly content.

Guidelines for content you didn't create:

Can I monetize my video if...

Click below to see if your type of content is monetizable and if you need to prove commercial use rights to use it.

I created all the audio and visual content


You can monetize content that you created as long as you still hold the rights to the video.

If you're signed with a music label, you can possibly monetize your video depending on the terms or limitations of that agreement. You may need to consult an attorney.

I use audio or visual editing software to create my own content

Audio and visual editing software can be used to create monetizable content. Monetization will depend on the scope, limitations, and commercial permissions of the license. If you used samples or loops, make sure that the license specifically allows for their commercial use.

I use royalty-free or Creative Commons content


You can monetize royalty-free or Creative Commons content if the license agreement grants you rights to use it commercially. Sometimes rights owners require you to credit the creator of the content or give proof of purchase to use it in your video for commercial purposes.

Learn more about how to read licenses to understand your rights.

I have permission to use audio or visuals created by someone else

You can monetize such content, but you must have explicit written permission granting you commercial use rights at any time by the rights holder.
I'm playing or doing a walkthrough of a video game

Whether you can use video game content for monetization depends on the commercial use rights granted by the license from the video game publisher. Some video game publishers may allow you to use all video game content for commercial use and will confirm such permission in their licensing agreements.

In other licensing agreements, publishers may not grant commercial rights for videos that simply show game play for extended periods of time. For licensing terms, video game use must be minimal unless the commentary gives instructional/educational value and is strictly tied to the action shown.

I'm doing a tutorial demonstrating use of software

Monetization of software user interface content you produce depends on the commercial use rights granted by the license of the software.

Sometimes, you may need a contract with the publisher or proof that you've paid a licensing fee. The use of software user interfaces must be minimal unless the commentary gives:

  • instructional/educational value
  • Content is strictly tied to the action shown

Learn more about video game and software content.

I use content that's in the public domain
 

In order for content to be in the public domain, the copyright of the work has either expired, been forfeited, or is no longer applicable. If you prove that the content in your video is public domain, you can monetize (depending on the scope, limitations, and commercial permissions of the license).

The criterion to qualify as public domain may vary depending on many factors.
Learn more about the public domain.
It contains my original recording of a cover song

Some cover songs may be eligible for monetization. To be eligible, the music publisher must claim the song through the Content ID system and elect to monetize it.

If the song has not been claimed, you cannot monetize your video. Explicit written permission from the rights owner of the song should be given beforehand.

The use of any commercial sound recording, such as an instrumental, karaoke recording, or live concert performance by the artist is not eligible for monetization.

Learn more about monetizing eligible cover videos.

I use my personal recording of public concerts, events, shows, and so on

Although you may have recorded something yourself, usually the original creator or author of the underlying content holds the rights needed to commercially exploit this content.

If you want to monetize your recording of a performance at a concert or show, you need explicit written permission from the original rights owner.

I made a recording from TV, DVD, or CD

Although you may have recorded something yourself, the creator or author of the content being recorded may hold the rights needed to commercially exploit this content.

To monetize your recording of a TV show, DVD, or CD, you need written permission from the rights owner of the audio or visual elements recorded.

I upload content that I purchased

Although you may have purchased something yourself, usually its actual creator or author holds many of the rights needed to commercially exploit this content.

You cannot monetize third-party content that you've purchased unless its rights owner grants you commercial use rights.

I upload content that I found online

Although you may have found the content online for free, usually its actual creator holds many of the rights needed to commercially exploit the content.

If you want to monetize such content, make sure that you have all the necessary commercial use rights for it.

It contains music from the YouTube Audio Library

You can monetize music from the YouTube Audio Library.

I used third-party content under Fair Use

Commercial uses are less likely to be considered "fair use," though it's possible to monetize a video and take advantage of the fair use defense. For more info, visit the article Fair use on YouTube

Still need help?

If you're still not sure what kind of content you can or can't monetize, review the video monetization criteria. For more info about copyright, copyright infringement, and fair use, go to the Copyright Center.

How AdSense determines the exchange rate for your earnings - AdSense Help [gg-adsense-en]

Payments

How AdSense determines the exchange rate for your earnings

We convert advertisers' payments from their currencies to your payment currency using the prevailing market rate from the day before the ads were shown. We get our rates from major banks, and other industry-recognized rate sources.

For example, let's say you get paid in euros, and an advertiser purchases ads on your site using U.S. dollars on August 15. We'll then calculate your earnings using the dollar to euro exchange rate from the end of August 14.

Note that if your bank account is denominated in a different currency to your payment currency, then when you get paid your bank may apply their own currency conversion (using their own exchange rate) or even reject your AdSense payment. In either case, you should contact your bank directly for more information.

The exchange rate for reports

We convert currencies in reports in the same way. This means that reports in your payment currency should reflect the amount you'll be paid. Reports in a different currency reflect the amount you would be paid if you were paid in that currency.

When viewing reports in a different currency to your payment currency, the reported values (based on daily exchange rates) might not match your own calculations, if you're exchanging your earnings into that currency using a later exchange rate.

Can I temporarily hold my AdSense payments? - AdSense Help [gg-adsense-en]

Payments

Can I temporarily hold my AdSense payments?

Yes, you can temporarily hold your AdSense payments for up to one year. Configuring a self hold will stop Google from sending payments until the date that you specify, but you will continue to accrue earnings onto your balance. Provided that your account balance has reached the payment threshold and you have no other holds on your account, we'll issue a single lump sum payment of your accrued earnings a few days after the date you specified for the hold to expire.

Ready to get paid again?

To start receiving payments again, either remove the self hold on your account, or, if applicable, change your payment threshold to $100 and set an appropriate payment date.

To place a hold on your payments:

  1. Sign in to your AdSense account.
  2. In the left navigation panel, click Payments.
  3. Click Manage settings.
  4. Next to "Payment schedule", click Compose.
  5. Enter date when you'd like the payment hold to expire.
  6. As a different option, you can increase the payment threshold to a larger amount.
  7. Click Save.

Please note that you won't be able to place a hold your payments for more than one year. Additionally, you will not be able to postpone the current month's payment if you placed a hold in your payment schedule after the 20th of that month. You must place a hold by the 20th if you wish to postpone your upcoming payment until a later date.

    • Attachment: This only works for files that weren't created using Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, or Forms.
  6. Click Insert.

Sharing settings for Google Drive files

When you attach a Google Drive file to a message, Gmail checks to see if your recipients have access to the file. If they don't, you'll be prompted to change the sharing settings of the file before you send your message.

Share with anyone who has the link

If you choose "Anyone with the link" as your sharing setting, you can choose whether people can view, comment in, or edit the file.

If the message is forwarded or new people are added to the conversation, they'll have the same permissions as the people you originally sent the message to.

Recipients don't need to have a Google Account to see or edit the file.

Share only with email recipients

If you only want your message's recipients to be able to see or edit the file, click "More options" when you're prompted to change your file settings.

If you keep the file private, recipients won't be able to see it if:

  • They don't have a Google Account
  • The email address you used isn't a Google account
  • They got the message through a mailing list (unless the mailing list is managed through Google Groups and the file is shared with the Group)

Note: If a file can't be shared with others, Gmail will let you know and you may have to contact the original file owner to adjust the sharing settings.

Sharing options if you use Gmail through your work, school, or other organization

If you use Gmail through your work, school, or other organization, your admin may restrict which files you can share, and who you can share them with.

Only people with a Google Account can see Google Drive files you attach in Gmail.

Follow these best practices to maximize Gmail performance:

  1. Delete Gmail labels to stay under 500 labels (including sublabels).
  2. Delete Gmail filters to stay under 500 filters.
  3. Avoid bulk operations. When you delete multiple messages, empty your Trash, and so on, stay under 1,000 messages at a time.
Fix local network and computer issues

    1. Turn off any proxies or Virtual Private Network (VPN).
    2. Connect your device to a different Wi-Fi network.
  3. Open other Google Workspace services, such as Google Drive at https://drive.google.com. Are other webpages slow?
  4. Check if other users in your domain are experiencing the issue.

If Gmail works fine on a different network or machine, contact your network administrator. Tell them to try advanced tests to diagnose connectivity issues.

If the issue affects multiple users and different networks, check the Status Dashboard for any known issues affecting Gmail.
