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=Google%20Apps]].
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/personal-agenda/my-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 ===

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 Groupware queue>>url:https://idesk.vsb.cz/SelfService/Create.html?Queue=41&Subject=Google%20Apps]].

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. (% style="color:#cc0000" %)**Do not store sensitive data here and especially not personal information!**
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.
