  Add your team members

As the administrator, you can give each member of your team a username and email to sign in to their Google Apps services. During your free trial, you can add up to 10 users. Once you’ve set up billing, you can add more team members.

You can add users individually or by uploading a spreadsheet. Larger organizations can sync Apps with existing LDAP or Active Directory servers.

  Redirect email to Gmail

When you're ready to begin using mail with Google Apps, you’ll have to redirect your domain's mail flow to Gmail. You do this by changing your domain's MX records at your domain host. When you first sign up, a setup wizard will guide you through the process.

To access the wizard, sign in to your Admin console and click Set up Gmail. The Setup Wizard will then guide you through the process.
