How to enable Google Drive for Google Apps Domains

Google drive was finally released with fanboys finally breathing a sigh of relief. Their beloved Google has finally delivered an affordable alternative to Dropbox. 

As a Google Apps Domain customer, I realized there was no way for me to enable Google Drive but to ensure you get it as quickly as possible, make sure you log into your domain management page here: https://www.google.com/a/cpanel/YOURDOMAIN.com/Dashboard

** replace YOURDOMAIN.com with your actual domain name of course **

Click on DOMAIN SETTINGS 

Go to the New User Features and ensure Automatic is selected

Then go to the New Services section and ensure Next Generation Release is selected.

Then go to http://drive.google.com and click on the Notify Me button

 

You are taken to this page

Click the Notify Me button

then you get this confirmation

And now you wait until Google decides its your turn.
