How (and why) do I grant Antenna access to Google Workspace?

If you’re reading this, you probably administer your organization’s Google Workspace and one of your leaders just asked if they could use Antenna for their team. 

Below is a less than 5 minute read on why Antenna is valuable, how Antenna works and step by step guidance on approving. 

What is Antenna?


Antenna helps leaders better understand how they are engaging with their team members, helping to improve their leadership skills, team engagement and team performance. 

How does it work?

  1. A leader grants Antenna read-only access to their calendar and email history from Google and provides Antenna with the names and email addresses of their direct reports. 

  2. Antenna analyzes this data, building a picture of how the leader is engaging with their entire team - how much time is spent, how much engagement, when they are engaging, how they are engaging, and we surface insights directly to the leader.

  3. Upon registration, the leader gets a 90 day historical analysis, then an ongoing weekly analysis that reviews the most recent week’s data. 


Note: Our product follows strict privacy guidelines. Antenna only has read-only access to that specific user's data, and we only ever surface any analysis of that data to that specific user. 


What kind of security do you have in place?

As part of our development with Google, we completed a verification process and security review via a third party security firm to satisfy their requirements. We passed this review on December 21, 2022 and will complete a review annually. Please review our certificate here
