Delegate Administrative Tasks in Google Apps

If your school uses Google Apps for Education, your administrator just got a new option for delegating tasks. Google now allows you to have "Delegated Administrators" of your Google Apps for Education domain. A Delegated Administrator is a person who has access to some administrative tasks, like password resets, but not all administrative functions. For directions on activating Delegated Administrators, see Google's announcement of the new function.

Applications for Education
At the beginning of the school year delegating the tasks of password management (creation or reset) to a handful of people in your school building could enable you to get students and staff using their Google Apps accounts faster than if just one person is responsible for that task.
