Easily navigate through the Admin console using the updated left-hand navigation bar

Quick summary 

We’re introducing a streamlined, persistent navigation experience in the Admin console. The new left-hand navigation column allows you to quickly browse through and navigate to key pages without losing context or your place in the Admin console. You’ll also notice updated icons for each category, bringing the Admin console design inline with other Google products.

You can easily collapse the navigation bar by selecting the menu icon at the top right when you need more space on the page to complete tasks.

We hope the updated navigation experience, along with other recent upgrades, makes it faster for admins to navigate within the Admin console, allowing them to manage their users, domains, and policies with ease.
