    Do I manage my School’s Google Apps Accounts using the new School portal Account?

    Yes, once you can successfully sign on to the new portal, and is having the School Portal Role, you can start creating individual user account in your school, re-issue lost passwords for your users, or manage your school’s mailing list, under the “User Management” section.

    For Schools that had yet to start the Google Apps, we would suggest you use the utility program provided in our SMS, where we can assist you in batch creations of accounts, instead of creating them one by one, which may take ages
