Activating Google Workspace integration

This post is also available in: Português

The Bybrand email signature manager for Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) facilitates the creation, deployment, and updates of all users’ email signatures from the organization.

In this complete tutorial, we’ll go through the three steps needed to activate Google Workspace integration, making editing, and deploy the email signatures way easier.

Prerequisites

Add the domain in Bybrand

To get started, you need to navigate to the Integrations area and add your organization’s domain. Log in with your Google Workspace administrator account, then enter the domain.

See this illustration for an example.

Add the Google Workspace domain on Bybrand

Enter the data and click Save.

Later, you can add other domains if your organization has additional addresses.

This step is important. You can only make changes to users’ email signatures (@domain.com) if you are the account administrator.

Enable integration Bybrand + Google Workspace

The first step is to enable integration in the Google Workspace Marketplace.

Enter the Google Workspace administrator panel, or directly from https://admin.google.com

Install app in the Google Workspace Marketplace

Video tutorial:

In this video tutorial, you can see how to enable the Bybrand application in Google Workspace Marketplace for quicker instructions. Including all installation and authorization steps.

Step by step manual:

If the video above was not helpful, here is the step-by-step process. First, enter the APP part, as you can see in the illustrated image.

Google Workspace admin painel apps

Click the option to install Google Workspace Marketplace Apps. Next, then click in the text option. Add services to your domain.

You will see an option box. In the search field, look for Bybrand. The option will appear and click Install Domain.

Authorization part:

A dialog box will appear to confirm the installation and allow the Bybrand application to access your list of email users. As can be seen in this sample image:

Click Continue, and then Accept.

Done, the installation is complete. But before you proceed to the step of adding the domain in Bybrand, make sure your Google Workspace account accepts external API calls, as you can see in the action below.

Activating Google Workspace API

Before loading the email users list, you need to verify if the access API is active in your panel. With the APIs, you can create administrative tools personalized for Google products, which is Bybrand’s case.

To activate, please visit: Google Admin console – Security – API reference.
After that, click in more controls, as you can see in this Google tutorial.

Loading users list

Users are active email accounts in Google Workspace. If everything was correctly done, you’ll be able to load all emails of the organization.

Click on the button to update users in the integration part of Bybrand.

Load all users of Google Workspace

You’ll see the total number of accounts.

Updating email signatures of the accounts

Now we go to the best part.

Choose an email signature and update it as a test. See if the signature was updated by sending a new email message.

Bybrand does not automatically update, so you’ll need to send the modifications again to a new user.

Primary domain
In this part of the email signature, you view users from only one domain defined as primary in the settings.

Here is a quick 1-minute presentation of the step:

Removing the integration

At any moment, you can remove the Google Workspace integration through Bybrand and also through your administrator Google Workspace account, revoking access.
