I have a Galaxy Note5 that I use as an auxiliary device.  In other words it does not have a SIM card in it.  It only connects to the internet via Wi-Fi.

I would like to have Google Voice to be the default dialer for this device.  I tried to research this issue a few times but I can't seen to figure it out.

The Note5 is running Android version 7.0

We have users already in our local Active Directory (Windows 2012 R2)

They also have Gsuite accounts with Google, primarily for email but we are using Google Apps more and more.

Is there a way of syncing existing AD accounts with existing Gsuite accounts? For example if they had the same 'mail' attribute.

It seems as though Google Cloud Directory Sync creates new Gsuite accounts after polling Active Directory.

I need to map existing AD accounts to existing Gsuite accounts.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Is this normal ?

I wasn’t able to go to the go to the cloud to verify it was there as we didn’t log into the husbands google drive itself

Android App
Google Drive
Google Chrome Desktop Browser

BACKGROUND
I have an app on my phone that uploads a file from my phone to my Google Drive account. Prior to uploading that file, I enter text information to a "description" field that the app provides for that file .

From a "Desktop" version of the Chrome browser, when I view the file in my Google Drive files area, I must Right-Click the file and select, "View Details" (see attached image). Then, in the browser, a Right Sidebar appears and in the "Details" tab, you can see the text "description" [Metadata] that I had entered from the app on my phone ("File notes show up here" in the attached image).

Background:  I'm working with a small school who is interested in bringing live text into their athletic streams.  The most cost effective yet easily editable solution for students is to use a Google Sheet.  The solution is great, but now they've evolved to wanting the "white" in the cell background to become transparent.

Question:  I'm working with OBS studio (https://obsproject.com/).  
I use a local Chrome browser source going to a Google Sheet as one of my media layers.   Works great.

The next thing I need to do is make the white background of a cell(s) to be transparent rather than the classic "white".  I've attempted a ChromaKey filter on the source and unfortunately I can't get the ChromaKey to filter on the browser source.

It has been mentioned to use CSS and change the "white" to "transparent".  Maybe even simply using the inspect aspect of Chrome for the local browser.

Is this something easily attainable to someone starting from scratch on the subject?

I have around 12 different Gmail email accounts that I use.

Currently, I have to click on the gray circle with the initial in it (in the upper right-hand corner of Gmail) and then select whichever other Gmail email account I want to open or log in to (or click the Add account button).

There are also times when I don't have the Gmail webpage open and I want to launch my Gmail for an account that is different than the email account that I last opened. So I have to click on my Gmail shortcut, wait for Gmail to load my main email account and then click on the gray circle and select the other account I would like to open.

Is there any way I can simplify this process by saving a URL below my Chrome address bar that will automatically load the particular Gmail email account I want to open? If so what is the process or URL address that needs to be saved within this favorite that will launch the Gmail email account that I want to open?

Also if particular Gmail email accounts can be launched by using a particular URL address then I can have Chrome default to opening several tabs with each tab containing a different Gmail email account every time that Chrome is launched.

Being able to do this will save me quite a bit of time.

Hi、

I would like to use online "Map" service like Google Earth, Google Map, and etc. in order to display about 1000 customer locations on the map.
It is for the internal use, so I do not want to share the data on public, so that our sales staffs can use the tool for analyzing the route or location to set their sales strategies.

Could you share with me how to accomplish it and what are the actual steps?


Thank you,

But what of those such as my associate who doesn't use Office 365 and relies solely on Gmail free?
Hopefully we are referring to the same thing.

My  point is if you or your associate already uses the desktop software and you are offering an option to sync, in my opinion, you are better off suggesting to to switch to office 365 version with the desktop software option.  Not only does this keep you up to date with the latest version, it also ads many other benefits and one of those is the ability to sync and install on up to 5 of your devices including your mobile.

If your associate is not part of your domain, then you can send and receive appointment/event requests that will get added to your calendar.

Hi Scott,

Hopefully we are referring to the same thing.
I hope we are too because some of your suggestions are starting to appear circular to me and already discussed?

My  point is if you or your associate already uses the desktop software and you are offering an option to sync, in my opinion, you are better off suggesting to to switch to office 365 version with the desktop software option.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but here's you're suggesting I should tell him to buy himself an Office 365 Subscription, are you not?

Despite there being non-business Office 365 subscriptions available for home users which are (in my view) so affordable that I have difficulty understanding why almost everyone isn't using 365 in one fashion or another, "he" chooses not to. Perhaps he's not willing to pay for any sort of recurring subscription at all? Or perhaps he just dislikes or doesn't trust Microsoft to the point where he won't even consider buying a standalone version of Microsoft Office or Outlook? But his reasons in this scenario don't really matter.

Indeed, if memory serves, from earlier conversations with him I recall him telling me that he chooses to use Libre Office as his desktop Office Suite solution and so far as I'm concerned, that's his choice and fine. I don't think it would be appropriate for me to suggest he reach into his pocket to purchase an Office 365 subscription just to satisfy my needs of him being able to continue setting appointments and tasks into "my" calendar. He uses Google free, I use Google free, so the answer is already there - the syncing issue was "my" problem, not his. You disagree?

Not only does this keep you up to date with the latest version, it also ads many other benefits and one of those is the ability to sync and install on up to 5 of your devices including your mobile.
Whether or not I agree with you here is not the point. Your argument for using the solution should be taken up with him - not me. But no, I will not reveal his identity and have no idea if he's even following this discussion.

If your associate is not part of your domain, then you can send and receive appointment/event requests that will get added to your calendar.
He's not a part of my domain and does everything online related to the calendar issue in Google. That all works, but since Google removed the option for their Free subscribers to use the Gmail/Outlook synchronizing tool to all but paid subscribers of their G-Suite package, then I can tell you from bitter personal experience that while it's still possible to synchronize via workarounds (some of which you yourself pointed out), time zones will not synchronize correctly, hence the reason I asked for expert help at this forum in the first place, and the eventual finding of the Sync2 solution which resolved the problem completely.

I think we've gone the full circle. Of have I missed your point completely?  :)

Regards, Andrew

hi,

I'm looking to setup a trigger alert service based on images from an ip security camera. I want to alert if some objects are present during a specific time window. The objects are bins, the time window is during the night, and i have put reflective material on the bins so you can easily see the marks on the IR of the camera, see attached.

example ip camera image
I could use iSpy to set this up, but i'd like to use a google script running the check. i can pickup the images with a google script, so i "just" need to be able to perform a check on the image. In my case the average brightness within a specified rectangle of the image would be enough info. I guess i need to call some kind of image processing tool for this, as i'm probably not looking to do all the coding from scratch.

Any suggestions? I'm new to scripting with google so any example code would be great.

Many thanks

I currently upload finish line pictures from races I time to Google + and share the gallery with race finishers so they can find their picture.  I would like to take that a step further and share each finishers individual picture with them.  I believe Google Vision has the technology to do that...albeit for a cost...by pairing participant bib number with bib in the image.  Is anyone familiar enough with this api to give me some direction as to how to do this?  Also, any idea how this product is priced?
