The Cisco Support Community recently developed a Google Gadget for Gmail, a way to extend the Cisco Support Community through your Gmail account. This gadget can smartly draw information from the Cisco Support Community and let you perform relevant actions based on the content of an email message, all without leaving the Gmail inbox.

It's easy to get started...ggle-1.jpg

All,

Note the last bullet...

"Now every Gmail users in your domain should be able to view recent discussions from Cisco Support Community, that matches with the subject or body of the email."

I had to remove this as it was inappropriate to have it (even the basic one line at the bottom of EVERY message for EVERY user in the domain) installed domain wide. 

Conceptually this sounds great but needs to be user specific and not domain wide.

Any Google app listed in marketplace can be installed by Domain Admin only.  Domain admin has a privilege to grant/revoke access to the app to individual users or groups based on their needs.

Agreed and understood but I think this would be better served as a sidebar gadget and not Domain wide App.  Doing a gadget that searches my email content similar to how Rapportive searches my email to/cc/bcc list and provides details based on that would be a) easier to use b) less resistenace for installation as it wouldn't require a GApps Admin to install it or enable it for specific user groups.
