Saved Action Sets for Onboarding Google Workspace users

Introduction #

GAT Flow is a Google Workspace user management tool from GAT.

It’s used by Google Workspace Admins to take single or bulk actions to Onboard (create), Offboard (delete), or Modify (update) user accounts on Google Workspace.

Admins can create and save a list of actions called “Action set”. This Action set once saved can be used over and over for different workflows.
