Manage email effectively with unified routing settings in Admin console

Posted: 04 Jan 2017 10:00 AM PST

G Suite customers use Gmail because it's simple to use and reliable, and because it allows them to customize their enterprise-specific routing settings in the Admin console. However, as we expanded these features to cover more use-cases, it became clear that a consolidated view of all routing settings would make it easier to manage at a glance. That's why today, we're beginning to unify Gmail's routing settings in the Gmail Routing section of the Admin console that was launchedone year ago.





Beginning week of January 23, 2017, your existing Sending routing, Receiving routing, Catch-all address and Domain-level routingsettings will become read only. These settings are still active, but in order to make changes, you must click the CONVERT button, next to the existing rule. We've taken steps to make this process as simple as possible by converting the previous setting and mapping it to the new fields automatically. The converted setting is then placed in the unified Routing section, where all of your rules can be managed from one place. The old setting will no longer be visible in the old user interface, so you don't need to clean up old rules afterward.




Action Suggested
  1. To make changes to an existing routing setting, click the CONVERT button next to the rule. Since the user interface has changed slightly, we suggest re-familiarizing yourself with the new look and feel.

  2. To add new routing settings, use the Routing section from Gmail's advanced settings section. The previous way to create routing settings will soon be removed.
  3. To migrate your existing rules to the new section ahead of time, you can use the CONVERT button for all of your rules. If you decide not to make any changes to your routing rules, then your rules will be automatically converted to the new Routing format and section on March 6, 2017.

Launch Details
Release track:
Settings converted to read only on both Rapid release and Scheduled release week of January 23, 2017.
Automatic routing settings conversion occurring after March 6, 2017.

Rollout pace:
Gradual rollout (potentially longer than 3 days for feature visibility)

Editions:
Available to all G Suite editions

Impact:
Admins only

Action:
