Update from Google: Brand Accounts in G Suite for Education

Google recently announced that Brand Accounts are no longer supported for G Suite for Education school domains. They will be revoking membership of user accounts from Brand Accounts on July 10, 2019. 

Google suggests looking into your Brand Accounts at https://myaccount.google.com/brandaccounts in a web browser.

To preserve any existing content associated with a Brand Account, Google suggests downloading your data while logged into the Brand Account.

Our SEO team suggests transferring primary ownership of the Brand Account to a non-G Suite for Education Gmail account using the following procedure: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/7311601

Although Finalsite Support cannot help with the transfer of the account, we hope that these articles from Google will help you with the transition.

  • I'm curious how other finalsite schools are getting around the "YouTube Brand Accounts as a G Suite Administrator for Education"?

    I found this article and directions to "transfer ownership of your schools' Brand youtube channel" .... but I'm wondering best practices/how are schools setting this up?

    1) are schools making generic school google accounts like "yourschoolname@gmail.com" so they can change ownership outside of a G Suite Education Administrator?

    2) What is the purpose of deleting Brand accounts for G Suite Education Administrators? (is it the legal kids under age?)

    Any insight is helpful
