Google has just introduced some new fine grain controls to the Google Apps admin dashboard that allows you to disable/remove the Insightly Gmail gadget and Insightly link in the top navbar for a subset of your users. This is useful if not all the users in your organization use Insightly, or if some do not wish to have the gadget appear within Gmail.
Only a user from your domain with administration privileges can make the changes below.
First an administrator from your domain has to log into the Google Apps administration panel located at https://www.google.com/a/cpanel/your-domain.com - where you can substitute in your own Google Apps domain at the end of the URL.
Under the 'Organizations and users' tab, add a new sub-organization called "Insightly Users" or a similar name.
Go back to the list of all your users and move only the users of Insightly into the new sub-organization. You can do this by clicking the checkbox to the left of the user names, then click the 'Move To' button and choose the 'Insightly Users' option.
Now you can turn on/off the specific services that users in that sub-organization require. Turn on Insightly and any other services they may require.
Finally in the parent Organization turn off access to Insightly to disable the gadget and quick link for all other users in your domain.
Google also has a blog post on how to do this.
