Change User Email in Bulk during the Workflow in GAT Flow

GAT Flow allows a Google Workspace Admin or/and Delegated Auditor to change users’ email addresses in bulk.

The Security Officer must approve the email rename request for the workflow to be complete. After the workflow is approved and started, the users’ emails are renamed accordingly.

You can achieve this with a few simple steps outlined below.

Note: Change user email action is only available during the Modify or Offboarding workflow.

Next, fill in the details as follows:

  • Name – enter a name for the workflow
