17 === Use of the service ===
18
19 **Employees** have an account created **automatically**. **Students** are included in G Suite **at their own request** via [[HelpDesk>>url:https://idesk.vsb.cz/SelfService/Create.html?Queue=41&Subject=G%20Suite]].
20
21 If interested, we can convert part or all of the group from IDM.
22
23 If you end your relationship with the university, your G Suite account will be suspended.
24
25
26 === Sign in to G Suite ===
27
28 The login name is in the form of **your e-mail address**, where you replace @vsb.cz with **@g.vsb.cz**. (examples: (% style="color:#27ae60" %)**alexandr.abecedny@g.vsb.cz**(%%) | (% style="color:#27ae60" %)**alexandr.abecedny.st1@g.vsb.cz**(%%) etc.)
29
30 You can check the form of your G Suite email in the summary of your LDAP account under the "**Google e-mail to login to G Suite**" field at page https://innet.vsb.cz/en/user-account/ldap-account/
31
32 There you can also find the initial password for the first login under the "**Password to first login to G Suite**" field.
33
34 The first time you log in, you are forced to change your password.
35
36 For security reasons, passwords for G Suite accounts are different from passwords in IDM.
37

41 === Reset password ===

43 There is no automated tool to reset your password and you must ask through the helpdesk interface [[idesk.vsb.cz in the Cloud services queue>>url:https://idesk.vsb.cz/SelfService/Create.html?Queue=41&Subject=G%20Suite]].

46 === The role of CIT ===
47
48 Primarily, CIT provides **management** of the environment (users and services).
49
50 All services and instructions are provided by Google.
51
52 Make service requests through the interface [[idesk.vsb.cz in the Cloud services queue>>url:https://idesk.vsb.cz/SelfService/Create.html?Queue=41&Subject=G%20Suite]].

55 === Possible use ===
56
57 When using the G Suite services, keep in mind that the data is not actually stored on the university's technical resources. Google stores user data in its data centers located around the world.
58
59 While G Suite is intended for internal use, there is an option to use external accounts. You can share your work calendar from the domain g.vsb.cz to a private Google account. The same rule can be used when sharing a project document from VŠB-TUO to the account of a colleague from another institution involved in G Suite.
60
61 Google lets you easily switch between different accounts in your browser.
62
63
64 === Sharing your calendar with a private account ===
65
66 If you want to use your personal account primarily, you can simply add a calendar from your work account as another calendar. However, you will not have scheduling features that need access rights to your colleagues' calendars. You will need to switch to a work account for these activities.
67
68 You can only link to a calendar. For services like Google Drive, colleagues need to share everything directly to a personal account, or access through a G Suite account.
