In this article, we will learn about how to bulk update employees information in Google Workspace. There are occasions managers need to bulk update employees information in Google Workspace. It is an extremely cumbersome job and can be highly time-consuming if done manually, one by one. Although Google Admin can update bulk employees, by using Bulk update user options. But Foresight is an easy-to-use drag-drop tool that gives extra automation. For example, using Foresight, IT Admin can update the employees' information and notify the Manager of these employees at the same time. While this is manual and time-consuming using Google Admin Console. So it is sensible to use an automation tool that can help to ease the burden and make the task convenient.

  • Employee’s manager – The email of the manager who is supervising the particular employee.
  • Employee ID – The ID of that employee.
