In this article we will learn about how to send automated email to new users' manager in Google Workspace. Effective communication is the cornerstone of any successful organization. It ensures that information flows smoothly between team members, departments, and management, facilitating collaboration and decision-making. In a fast-paced business environment, timely and accurate communication is crucial for productivity, customer satisfaction, and overall success.

Challenges of manual communication processes

Traditional manual communication processes can be time-consuming, error-prone, and inefficient. For example, when a new user joins a team, it often requires manual intervention to notify their manager about the onboarding process. This can lead to delays, miscommunication, and a loss of productivity. Moreover, with the increasing complexity of organizations and the rise of remote work, manual communication processes become even more challenging to manage effectively. Google admins console do not have an option to automate this task in the Google Admin Console yet.
