Google today announced a pair of minor updates for some of its services on the Google Apps Updates blog. Specifically, the new features affect the Google Admin app on Android, as well as Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides.

First off, Google says that delegated admins can now use the Google Admin app on Android. Essentially what this means is that those admins, who have limited roles depending on the level of control they have been assigned, can use the Google Admin app, but can only access capabilities that pertain to their delegated responsibility.

“For instance, an admin who does not have permission to manage Google Groups will not see the Groups option in their app,” Google says.

The Google Admin app is available on the Play Store and the rollout of support for delegated admins should fully complete in a few days.

Next, Google has announced a small change for users of Docs, Sheets, and Slides. In the past, when users made a copy of a file, the copy would automatically be added to the user’s “My Drive” folder, without question. Now, however, users will be able to choose in which folder the file is placed. Google says this will help users keep their files organized.

Previously, when you made a copy of a Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides file, that copy would be automatically added to your My Drive folder—instead of the original file’s folder as most people would expect. Going forward, when you make a copy of a Docs, Sheets, or Slides file on the web, you’ll be able to choose which folder to place the file in. This should reduce confusion and make it easier to organize your Docs, Sheets, and Slides files.

Google says this capability will rollout over the coming days.
