Searching for settings, articles, and more in the Admin console now quicker and easier

We know that it often takes too long to find the item you’re looking for in the Admin console. To simplify your searches, we’re launching natural-language-based, “free form” queries in the Admin console. Starting today, you can pose questions in everyday language or enter commonly used words into the Admin console search box, then choose from a list of suggested results to navigate directly to your intended destination. There’s no need to jump from page to page! In addition to the tasks, users, and groups that would previously show up as search results, you’ll now see specific settings and prominent Help Center articles listed as well.
