New Google Additional Service within Glow

Looker Studio

Opt in Service

As you may know, Google Workspace is an opt in service so not all Glow users will have a Google account.

Once Local Authorities have opted into Google Workspace, they can also enable Google Additional Services. Google requires consent to be obtained and maintained for all users before they can use Additional Services. If a user is under 18 this has to be parental consent.

Current Additional Services include,
  • Google Earth
  • Google Chrome Store
  • Google Maps
  • YouTube
  • Google Arts & Culture
  • Google Translate

More information about this opt in service can be found by clicking this link

We are now delighted to share that the Glow Team have added another Additional Service.

Looker Studio

Looker Studio is a free tool that turns your data into informative, easy to read, easy to share, and fully customisable dashboards and reports.

  • Share your insights with your team or with the world.
  • Collaborate on reports with your team.
  • Speed up your report creation process with built-in sample reports.
