If you don't want to start the cleanup on your entire organization right away, you can test everything by simply running the cleanup on a single group.
1. Create a Google Group and add your test buddies
If you're unfamiliar with creating a Google Group, you can follow the guide right here to create one and add members to it. The members should be you and maybe a small number of colleagues ready to test Tricent.
Name the group something recognizable - like Tricent Test Group. We recommend that you give the group the access type Restricted to prevent other people than the ones you specify from joining.
Synchronizing the group from Google Workspace to Tricent may take up to 12 hours, so the next step can be completed the day after you created the group.
2. Set up that group to be cleaned up by Tricent
Once your test group has been synchronized - i.e. you see it under Groups in Configure Cleanup - you can go ahead and complete the setup.
1. Access Tricent for Google Workspace with an account that has a Super Admin or Admin role in Tricent.
2. Go to Configure Cleanup.
3. Keep the settings in Global Cleanup Settings and Additional Settings as they are.
4. Then go to Override Global Settings, select the tab Groups and click Add group.
5. Locate the test group that you created yesterday, tick it and click Add groups.
6. Now set up the group with the settings that you want to test. We highly recommend the following settings:
- Override - Checked
- Enable users - Enabled
- Cleanup - Enabled
- Override Language Leave as default (or a language you want to test)
- Frequency (days) - 2
- Max files (per cleanup) - 5
- Max safelist (days) - 30
7. Click Save group.
You have now set up a test group, and the members of the group will start getting notification e-mails two days from now (if they have files eligible for cleanup, of course).
