DLSU Goes Google FAQs

What is Google Apps?

Google Apps is a suite of web-based messaging and collaboration applications that Google hosts on its own servers. Google provides these applications “as a service,” rather than as software to download and install. To access these applications, you simply use a web browser on a computer that’s connected to the Internet.

To the Users

Please be advised that starting January 8, 2013, DLSU will be permanently transferring to the Google Apps Email. Our old MS Exchange Email will still be accessible until January 31, 2012. However, sending and receiving of emails will already be disabled on the MS Exchange Email accounts starting January 8, 2013.

While the students are using @dlsu.ph in their Google Apps Email addresses, the DLSU employees will be using @dlsu.edu.ph in their GoogleApps Email addresses. Employees currently using Google Apps Email with @dlsu.ph in the address are advised to back up their emails as these accounts will also be disabled by January 31, 2013.

Your existing MS Exchange email address (i.e. firstname.surname@dlsu.edu.ph) shall be retained in the transfer to the Google Apps Email so that your contacts can continue sending emails to that address. Your existing email messages on the MS Exchange email shall be transferred to yourGoogle Apps Email. Your email address will also serve as your login credentials to Google Apps.

Google Apps answers

  • Why did DLSU choose Google Apps?

    Based on recent De La Salle University growth and cost trends, DLSU sought out an email and calendar solution that could provide the following benefits:

    • Lower infrastructure costs – All emails will be stored securely on Google’s servers eliminating the need to maintain email servers on-site
    • Ability to consolidate platforms – Redundancy can be eliminated by moving all email and calendar platforms to Google Apps
    • Lower support costs – Because Google hosts the email and calendar services, email client software need not be installed anymore on each computer
    • Innovative solutions – The ongoing creative and technical solutions of the Google Apps platform can be leveraged to provide employees with powerful, easy-to-use tools for getting their work done
    • Highly scalable environment – With Google Apps, the email capacity will grow automatically as De La Salle University grows
    • Access to services from anywhere, anytime – A key benefit of the Google-hosted solution is that email, contacts, and calendar can be accessed from any computer or mobile device with an Internet connection, anywhere in the world
    • More collaboration features – With Google’s next-generation applications, collaboration with colleagues, customers, and partners can be done more easily and efficiently than ever before
    • Instant messaging –Because Google Apps includes Google Talk, an instant messaging system can be implemented for De La Salle University

  • What are the key benefits?

    • Lots of storage -- You get a full 25 GB of online storage for your emails, so you can archive all of your emails online. You'll no longer have to worry about deleting messages or saving them in offline folders.
    • Enhanced message organization and retrieval -- With Google Mail, you'll spend less time managing folders and searching for messages. For example, you can add one or more tags, or "labels," to your messages to organize and store them more efficiently. And with the Google-powered search feature, you can find any message quickly and easily, whether it's in your Inbox or stored in your message archive.
    •  Easier calendar sharing -- Google Calendar lets you and your team members quickly and easily share your calendars with each other and specify the details you want to show. Calendar sharing is a great way for you and your co-workers to keep each other informed about your schedules. Now it's easier than ever to find out if someone is in a meeting, on a business trip, or on vacation.
    • Integrated chat --With the Google Talk instant messaging application, you can communicate instantly with your co-workers right from the email interface. In addition, all your chats are automatically saved in your Email application, so you can always retrieve important information
    • Real-time collaboration -- Using Google Docs, you can create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, and you and your team members can view and edit them at the same time. You can still use your Microsoft Office products as needed, but now you'll have more options for storing and collaborating on your documents
    • Easy-to-build team web sites -- With Google Sites, your team has the ability to quickly publish a robust internal web site on which to gather all sorts of shared information, such as documents, spreadsheets, presentations, files, and videos. You can even embed Google calendars and other gadgets on your site!
    • Powerful video sharing -- Using Google Video for business, you can easily share videos with your team or throughout De La Salle University for a whole new level of communication and collaboration.
