Introduction

In this article we aims to provide a comprehensive guide on how to export all suspended users in Google Workspace. The management of user accounts in Google Workspace is a crucial aspect of maintaining a well-organized and secure digital environment.

However, there may be instances where certain user accounts become suspended for various reasons, such as security concerns or inactive usage. In such cases, it becomes necessary for administrators to efficiently handle and export all suspended users in Google Workspace.

Why do you need to Export Suspended Users in Google Workspace?

As we have mentioned, you might need to suspend an employee's google account temporarily or permanently. To save up the costs, the Google workspace accounts need to be suspended as well and it also helps to prevent any leakage of important business information.
