Google Workspace Frontline - Additional Storage Options

Hey Google Admins, welcome back. This is Goldy again, and in this video of our Google Frontline Worker SKU series. let's talk about this scenario where your user whom you assigned frontline worker license has consumed more than 2 GB of storage, and now this user is stuck because he can't send or receive emails, can't upload files to Google Drive.

What should you do in that case?

Personally, I feel that in case if the user is consuming more than 2 GB, then this user is more towards the content creator role than the content consumer role.

I think it might be a good idea to consider this user for regular Google Workspace license than the frontline one, but still, just in case, because of some reasons, if you still believe this user is a frontline worker and all he needs is just a bit of more storage, then I'll show you two options to add more storage to his frontline license.

Option 1 -: Add storage to Google Frontline worker license as a user:
As shown in the screenshot below, scroll down to the bottom of your Gmail and click on the button near to storage stats.

2. Will show you two Options Right here You See the mailbox it will take you to the Drive Storage
