Hi all,

I'm trying to create a Google Sheet that will automatically create Home/Away game matchups given some user-provided parameters:

Total teams: 8 (Lions, Tigers, Bears, ...). This number can vary.
Total games played per team: 10 (5 Home / 5 Away if possible. This number can vary.

I need the best possible diversity in terms of matchups.

I'm hoping the Google Sheet can kick out a simple columnar schedule like the following.

Can this be done without Javascript?

Thanks in advance.
Cannot seem to find the answer to this anywhere.. Does Google Authenticator require a RADIUS server linked to Active Directory? If not how does it authenticate against the domain\user?

Thanks in advance,
Hi All,

I'm working for a company who are currently using VASCO hard tokens for two-factor authentication. They want to switch over to a soft token (e.g google authenticator) however after reading this ( I've been slightly put off. Also nobody can seem to 100% confirm whether a RADIUS server in Active Directory is required for Google Authenticator or whether Google provide one. I've spoken to Barracuda who said it should be as simple as creating a new authentication scheme on the VPN and selecting Google Authenticator as the option however I wanted this confirmed by Google before beginning.

What are other two factor authentication methods that are best used in Enterprise environments? And was a RADIUS server required etc?

Thanks in advance,

So I'm the responsibly IT Technician. We managed to migrate around 50 users without a hitch, but the moment we went over that, problems started arising. It feels like a switch has been toggled because we hit a limit or something.

Office 365 System:

GSuite System:

Currently, anything we do, even small migrations like one users with data from the last 3 months keep failing, so it does indeed feel like we hit some kind of data cap to allowed migrations, but this is just a wild guess. Do anyone have an experience in this?

There are business apps that demand the GSuite integration that we are using, and I have gotten a deadline till 24th August...

Hello all, hoping someone can point me to the right program.

Our company is wanting to get a staff attendance sign in / out register. It really doesn't need to be over complicated or offer any other services, simply, staff turns up to work, punches in, staff leaves punches out.

We currently use an excel file for this, to begin with it was ideal, but as our company grows we need a little bit more.
I have searched for past 2 weeks straight trying to find the right program, all the ones i have found so far are way more advanced than what we need and price is way out of budget, or they are for 1 staff member only, that clocks in and out,
need to be able to add names, staff click on there name, signs themselves in or out.

My friend has a Hotel. Before her hotel rooms were not having safes installed in it. But now,  She is saying that she has seen people usually buy those hotel rooms that have safes installed in it. So for guests satisfaction and safety, she has thought of installing safes in the hotel room. She also has surfed on google, got some firms names like Global Safe Corporation, Amazon, etc from where she can buy safes for her hotel. Share your views on it and let her find the best firm.
I have about 30 000 files which are a mix of jpg, png, mov, mp4 and potentially others.  Total size is around 70GB.  I've collected these into a single folder structure and left an upload to google photos running, and then used the desktop uploaded and left that for a week to upload any that were missed.

Now, I'm not sure which have uploaded successfully and which haven't.  The 'log' created during the upload is not helpful when working out which files haven't uploaded.  I've done a download of the photos from google photos through their backup system.  However, I can't just windiff between the two folders as they have different subfolder structures.  I've tried doing an xcopy of files to a single folder but some of the files have the same name (although different dates) and I may miss out on file-extensions that I'm not aware are in the listing.

Does anyone have any ideas or scripts I could run to make the problem easier to solve, or to come up with the final list of files that haven't uploaded?
I have an application that creates an xml file with marker information.  It pulls the text for the info window, but I can't get it to show the picture links as pictures or links. When i add anything to the code to define the links, it breaks the whole map.

Here is my code snippet:
ownloadUrl("phpsqlajax_genxmlx.php", function(data) {
        var xml = data.responseXML;
        var markers = xml.documentElement.getElementsByTagName("marker");
        for (var i = 0; i < markers.length; i++) {
          var name = markers[i].getAttribute("name");
          var fulladdress = markers[i].getAttribute("fulladdress");
          var beds = markers[i].getAttribute("beds");
          var type = markers[i].getAttribute("type");
          var drg = markers[i].getAttribute("drg");
          var providernumber = markers[i].getAttribute("providernumber")
          var telephone = markers[i].getAttribute("telephone")
          var owner = markers[i].getAttribute("owner")
          var ImpactofReadmissions = markers[i].getAttribute("ImpactofReadmissions")
          var ReadmissionsAdjustmentFactor = markers[i].getAttribute("ReadmissionsAdjustmentFactor")
          var PneumoniaCases = markers[i].getAttribute("PneumoniaCases")
          var COPDCases = markers[i].getAttribute("COPDCases")
          var ExcessReadmissionRatioforPneumonia = markers[i].getAttribute("ExcessReadmissionRatioforPneumonia")

I’m trying to create a google column chart with Google apps script using a data table in google sheets and I keep getting the following error “Data column(s) for axis #0 cannot be of type string”. All the examples have found only use dataTable Array within the script but mine is using data in a separate google sheet.

Here’s the Google Apps Script  I have used:

function doGet(){
   var ss = SpreadsheetApp.openById('1phbmEm0NE4zrwQn6NnfSU0HNPiFofQryZ4OqrUOB5cA');
   var sheet = ss.getSheets()[0];
   var data = sheet.getDataRange().getValues();
  var dataTable = Charts.newDataTable();
   for( var j in data[0] ) {
      dataTable.addColumn(Charts.ColumnType.STRING, data[0][j]);
 for (var i = 0; i < data.length; i++) {
    if (i > 1) {
        var d = new Date(data[i][0]);
        //data[i][0] = d.toJSON().split('T')[0];  
       // data[i][0] = Number(d.toJSON().split('T')[0]  );
  for( var i = 1; i < data.length; ++i ) {
  for (var i = 0; i < data.length; i++) {
    if (i > 1) {
        var d = Number(d);
   var dateFilter = Charts.newCategoryFilter().setFilterColumnIndex(0).build();
    var columnChart = Charts.newColumnChart()
    .setTitle('Goals Started vs. Goals Completed')
A while back my old Phone got some water in its speaker and stopped workikng. I have stories and notes that i had on my quick memo, that i would love if i could retrive.
That's right, I have a client who wants to deliberately delay emails to their Gmail.

They would like their emails to be delivered every 4 hours instead of it coming down as they get them.

Any suggestions on how to do this?  Or does anyone know if there is a service that does this?

We're currently looking into doing it with Azure Queues but thought I'd put it out there to see if anyone knows of any other way.  Or if there is a way of doing this native to Gmail.

Thank you in advance.
I have Exchange 2016 running on two machines in a DAG.
Sending and receiving mail is fine for everyone except.
If anyone tries to send to a gmail address they get this bounced back (I do have a valid PTR record set up)
Remote Server returned '550-5.7.1 [] The IP address sending this message does not have a 550-5.7.1 PTR record setup. As a policy, Gmail does not accept messages from 550-5.7.1 IPs with missing PTR records. Please visit 550-5.7.1 for more 550 5.7.1 information. n66si97323qka.349 - gsmtp'
Then I go onto the local machine and try to connect to the gmail address using telnet localhost 25
The message I get back there is:
550 5.7.54; Unable to relay recipient in non-accepted domain

The server isn't set up as an open relay.
Searches across google say I have to set up a special connector of some sort, but that seems very odd. Why would gmail require a special connector.

Any suggestions? My users are going nuts because the can't send to gmail.
Sometime ago we had hired a company to develop an app for us, this company completed the task and uploaded the app into Google Play for us. Today this company is no longer inexistence and we are not able to locate the programmers / person in charge.

We are now having problem to remove this application from Google Play, Google Play will not allow us to remove this item as we do not have the necessary to do so. Is there another way? What can we do?

I created a powerpoint with graphs that has data inputted directly in powerpoint. I have to upload and share this powerpoint with another person through Google Drive. I have a MacBook and the the other person (let's call him B) has a Microsoft. B can download the file from Google Drive and edit the data and graphs. However when B uploads it back onto Google Drive and I download the file, I am no longer able to edit the data. The graphs in the powerpoint returns to me as a picture.

The file I download from them is in .pptx form. We both have Powerpoint 2016.

Please help.
Hello, i'd like a script that can run automatically that will sync new & updated google contacts onto a pre existing google sheets database.

then maybe even have it sync the other way round as well. so if a user updates a row in the 'sheet' this will update the google contact (but this is not as important as the other way round)

I'm working on a document which I plan to share in my google drive.  Rather than send this as a Word document by email and ask people to attach their comments and I receive several non consolidated files, if I did this in Google docs, how would I see the different comments that are added and general edits.  Will I see each user's edits in a different colour, sort of like a track changes feature, so it is clear to me who did what?

I have one main Google calendar, however I work with a few different companies, and have a company email address and calendar for each of them too.

It's impossible to try and keep up to date with all 4 calendars:

Calendar 01 - my main calendar, inc. personal items
Calendar 02 - Company A
Calendar 03 - Company B
Calendar 04 - Company C

01 - I would just like to use Calendar 01 however I don't want to give my personal email address to the other 3 companies
02 - I need the other 3 companies to be able to see my main Calendar 01

Is it possible to link all 4 google calendars up, given that they are all on 4 different email addresses and that I don't want to use my personal email address for the 3 companies?

Thank you in advance for your help.
Thank you considering this question:

I would like to use a single Google Voice account with one phone number which is attached to it's own email account, and a second phone number which is attached to it's own email account.

I would like to be able forward SMS message from the first phone number to the first email address, and forward SMS messages from the second phone number to the second email address.  Is this even possible?

I am hoping to use the Google Voice Android app to be able to make calls from either number.  Is any of this possible, and if so, how could I set that up?
