The first step in designing an organization unit (OU) structure is determining the layout. How should it look? Identifying the makeup of your schools, staff, and students with the schools, how to handle devices, and those accounts no longer active will allow you to make better plans.
When you apply settings in the Admin console, you can apply those at the root or by specific OU. Being thoughtful in designing your structure lets you apply settings based on each OU's purpose.
