To generate a DKIM record for a G Suite email account that you're sending from through Táve, you'll start by logging into your Google account administration at https://admin.google.com.  From there, you'll navigate to Apps › G Suite › Gmail and navigate down to Authenticate Email.  From here, you'll select the option to Generate New Record.
