I work for a school district and we've recently 'gone Google'. Our students now have email accounts; we have around 32,000 students. The student's email addresses are showing up in the Google directory (Exchange equivalent = Global Address List), we'd like to hide those email addresses from the directory.
I've attached a file with a couple of screen shots from a Google help file that tells me how to do this for an individual account but I'd really rather not have to go through 32,000 accounts and remove a check mark regarding contact sharing.
I know there are API scripts that I could leverage but I'm not much of a programmer. I can't change the contact sharing setting in the Admin Console because I need the staff email addresses to show up in the directory.
I'm hoping there's an easy resolve but if using an API is the only way to accomplish this task, then if someone could give me the link to the API I'd need to use, I'll give it a try.
I chose Google Chrome OS as the topic but this is a Google general question.
