Using Warwickshire’s Google Workspace (aka GSuite) system

Warwickshire Scouts have a Google Workspace account. This primarily hosts our email accounts and cloud storage, though it comes with many more features besides.

Google Workspace, formerly known as GSuite before the name changed in mid-2021, is Google’s commercial package of their cloud software – Gmail, Google Drive, Groups, Google Meet, Calendar and so on. Google provide this for free to non-profit organisations.

To get access to this system, whether you are a single leader, a GSL, or a whole district, email media@warwickshirescouts.org.uk and we’ll get you on board.

How to use Google Meet for video calls

Google Meet is a bit like Zoom, but it runs entirely in your web browser – there is no programme to download. You can use it for section meetings, leaders planning calls or anything else.
