Google Account Non-Core ServicesHere's a sampling of some of the non-core google services you can use:
Many Non-Core google applications are now available to use with your Lehigh account using single-sign-on, however the Terms Of Service(TOS) for those follow the consumer TOS, rather than the special terms available for Education Customers. Support for non-core services is limited. You may see a warning message that "This account is managed by lehigh.edu." when using those services with your lehigh account, which reminds you that the content you place there is tied to your Lehigh account/username. You can login directly from the google login box using your email@example.com with no password, and clicking login. It will then redirect you to the Lehigh single-signon page.
Google's help pages will answer most questions, and see our LTS G Suite Help page for tips, news and local help. LTS Seminars about using G Suite are scheduled periodically. Also, see the google website for education and the G Suite Learning Center. If you need additional assistance contact the LTS Help Desk at 610-758-4357 or www.lehigh.edu/help. Check status of G Suite.
Backups and saving your data
As an individual you can selectively download a backup of your information stored on google servers using Google Takeout (google mail, drive/docs, contacts, google plus, lots more). Before you leave Lehigh, please transfer ownership of any shared files to someone else. You may also use Google Takeout to download a copy of your data that is in your Lehigh google account. You can view your downloaded mail using local applications such as Thunderbird.
Lehigh does not make backups of your google data so it remains your responsibility to backup your own data.
Note to Lehigh Alums:
Lehigh Alums may want to move mail to myLehigh, the Alumni Online Community, or a personal account.
