"Google Cloud Search"

What do you like best?

This is a great tool when needing to share things among workers. Our staff is not always together. Google makes it super easy and convenient to have people jump in when it works best for them. It is a very handy and simple way to share things among people. Google cloud search makes it easy for us to search things as a group without actually being in person together. I enjoy the fact that I can see what other people are doing to make sure that things are getting done.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes we are too dependent on technology. It is easy to do in this day and age. We are all so used to using technology, that sometimes we are at a loss when it doesn't work. Things will always fail us. We unfortunately cannot bee 100% dependent on technology. It is not infallible. We cannot rely on it all of the time, which unfortunately is just a part of life.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am solving the problem of needing everyone to be together all of the time. That is very hard to do especially when our staff has other jobs to do. This allows us to all do our work when we can. The benefits have been amazing. It is very helpful that we can all share things amongst one another and we do not have to be together in person.

"Google Drive Makes for Easy Collaboration"

What do you like best?

Our company uses Google Suite for our documents, sheets, presentations, etc. It makes it so easy to share and collaborate across our distributed company (all over the world). Plus, I can access my documents from anywhere on any computer or device.

What do you dislike?

First, I dislike is the lack of revision control. Multiple people can be making changes at the same time and that can get confusing.

Second, I wish we could extract information across the files (such as when a sheet is updated, add that information to a corresponding slide, etc.).

Third, their Slides still has some limitations that PPT has mastered that they need to incorporate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider it for easiest collaboration. It's a great match/competitor to Microsoft.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Corporate sharing and collaboration across distributed teams is our biggest benefit. We are all over the world and have various clients...we can share and collaborate much more easily.

"Megahub for developers"

What do you like best?

Ability to find just about any tool/language you need to start developing, easily allow collaboration with your team without additional hardware.

What do you dislike?

Can be overwhelming to sort through, but search function takes care of this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is great for scaling your team so you can all work anywhere and collaborate if needed, with access to internet. No more need to install every language/infrastructure to get started on developing your product! Great incentive to start and trial for the first year as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cloud based development which means there is no need to install all the components to start coding - saves time and troubleshooting.

"Google Cloud Search features are part of the reasons why we chose G Suite!"

What do you like best?

Google has always been recognized for their search capabilities, and they do not disappoint in G Suite. We can easily find anything hosted on the cloud uploaded by anyone in our organisation. Search is fast and smart, relevant files show up in search results even when you type the filename wrong. They offer advanced search options that I could not live without, for exemple I can specify a file type and a location in Google Drive to search into, within a time frame. Search engines on competitive platorms such as Dropbox or Box feels like toys compared to Google Cloud Search in G Suite. If you have used gmail before, the search bar allows you to type smart commands to help you filter search results (for exemple: after:2018-08-15 before:2018-08-16). I strongly recommend trying it out!

What do you dislike?

I wish that Google would load more than 50 search results at a time, so I don't have to scroll down the page a few times to be able to use "CTRL+F" to find a word (loaded) on the page. I also wish I could type a letter on the keyboard to scroll directly to the first search result using that letter (just like file explorer in windows). Other than that I think Google Cloud Search is a great product that will continue getting better over time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Web apps such as Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Drive all share a common search engine, and it works great with a large and small team. We have consultants, and external people sharing files without organisation and they are easy to find and manage with Google Cloud Search. Highly recommend you give it a try!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company has greatly benefited from Google Cloud Search robust features. Finding files shared between employees, on various Google cloud apps (Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drive...), on different platforms (web and mobile) has never been easier. We are saving ourselves considerable amount of time on file management, and the experience is great. I strongly recommend it for your team!

"Auto sync eases my worries of deleted files"

What do you like best?

All of the files in folders I've selected are automatically backed up at least once a day. As my job is largely writing-based, this avoids a lot of potential problems of things getting deleted or not saved regularly. I can also access my files from any computer, which has been great for days I've had to work from home.

What do you dislike?

I haven't come across anything I don't like.

It does frequently error on signing in. I typically have to clear my cache to get rid of this error. I know my colleagues have reported the same issue.
