Google Apps wide assortment of tools bring together essential services to help your business, school, group or family communicate and collaborate more effectively. These services are powerful, easy to set up, require no maintenance and you can get them for FREE.

Most University faculty and staff, and ALL students have access to Google through their UMS account.  If you find that you cannot login to your UMS Gmail account, then you will need to migrate your account in order to access the tools.

Please follow the migration process by downloading the Migration handout.  Once migration is complete, you will need to re-forward your UMaine Gmail to USM Groupwise.

Below you will find documentation links for the most common Google products used within the UMaine system:

Google Docs/Drive (Maine System specific)

Google Sites (Maine System specific)

Google Mail (Google support)

Google Calendar (Google support) 

Google+ (Tutorials and resources)

YouTube (Google support) - YouTube is another example of an ever changing Google product.  As integration with various services becomes greater, providing documentation for the product does as well.  Please use Google's help site for questions, such as creating a channel, how to upload a video, acceptable video formats and other topics.  Anyone with a UMaine ID can access and create a channel on the service by choosing YouTube from the 'More' selection on the Google ribbon.
