Adding users and manage services

I. Adding user accounts or email addresses

To let people in your organization start using Google Apps, you must add them to your account. You’ll give each team member an email address at your domain (like team-member@yourdomain.com), so they can start using Gmail, Calendar, Hangouts, and all the other Google Apps services.

To create one or more user accounts:

Add users individually using your Google Admin console.

Add several users at once by uploading their names in a CSV file.

Find out more about options for adding users.

II. Adding more seats or licences to your existing account
If you would like to purchase more seats, login to our Admin Portal, select the appropriate Google Apps service, click on Upgrade/Downgrade options and set the number of seats.
 
Switch your business email to Gmail

Each users that you add to your Google Apps account get an email address at your domain. They can use this email address with your Google Apps Gmail service immediately to send email. Inbound mail won't start flowing to their Gmail account (and stop flowing to their old program) until you change your domain's MX records to point to Google servers. See Get started with Gmaill.
