Today we're proud to announce some big new Gopher releases with important new features and usability improvements, as well as the complete re-release of
Local Hero as an Electron.js app!

- New! Bulk device deprovisioning! Giving a bunch of end-of-life Chromebooks away to families? Handing over student Chromebooks to your graduating seniors? You’ll probably want them to be removed from domain management, and for this size job, you’re going to want more bulk power than you get in the admin console. Chrome Gopher now includes a bulk deprovisioning workflow! (learn more...)

- Importing devices by OU is now MUCH faster thanks to an API change we successfully lobbied Google for!

- Column groups are now more clearly identified in the sheet via merged top headers.

- The bulk update workflow now has a stepper to guide users through filtering for and previewing devices to be updated.

- An update status column has been added to Devices tab. This column allows you to monitor each device for successful update, and quickly filter for errors and re-run on those that may have failed due to Google API limitations.

- User Gopher and Group Settings Gopher now offer a cleaner, more intuitive workflow / stepper experience.

- Local Hero is no longer a Chrome App. It has been ported to an Electron.js application that is compatible with Mac and Windows.

Important: If you are a user of the original Local Hero Chrome App, due to Google's deprecation of local Chrome apps we can no longer support it. You must migrate to the new Mac or Windows version and manually re-build your sync jobs. Head over to the Labs website to get a Mac or Windows installer file: http://labs.amplifiedit.com/localhero/

Today a large scale phishing attack was launched which masquerades as a Google Document sharing notification. When a user clicks the link to view the doc, they are taken to a page prompting them to authorize access to Google Contacts and Gmail. Once access is granted, an email is then sent everyone in their Contacts, propagating the attack.

Google is working hard to resolve this known issue, and is actively working to disable the projects associated with the attack.

Amplified IT has documented a solution for schools affected, available in this Google Doc: https://goo.gl/LtFpd7 .
