"Google Docs - International Projects Made Easy"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that you can use Google Docs online and offline and it allows you to work with multiple people at once. I also like that you can leave comments and suggestions, because that prevents me from having to email those things directly. I especially like that you can make a copy of every document very easily and that you can control the share setting in a myriad of ways.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that you cannot do everything on Google Docs that you can do on Google Slides. I also do not like how often Google Docs are incorrectly formatted when it is converted from a Word file

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

I have been able to manage multiple projects at once, with people all over the world. Instead of constantly emailing people, I can just share a google doc and then see all of the changes and edits they have made.

What is Google Docs?

Create and edit text documents right in your browser—no dedicated software required. Multiple people can work at the same time, and every change is saved automatically.

"To create text documents."

What do you like best?

This application designed for the creation of text documents, I use it in the educational area mainly to make any text document, especially the annual learning projects of the institution, since this offers the advantage of allowing collaborative work, so that I can work a document with my teaching colleagues, allowing everyone to contribute ideas and knowledge, since all authorized teachers can make changes in it, these changes are saved automatically and you can see the history of changes and by whom it was made . I consider it a very complete text editor that allows collaborative work and provides all the tools that Word offers and the advantage of being stored in the G. drive cloud.

What do you dislike?

 Being an online app requires an internet connection to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is simple to use, its interface is similar to Word so it is easy to become familiar.

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

It is online and free and is a great help to make projects faster with collaborative work, no matter where each of the colleagues are, saving time and facilitating work or decision.

"Safe text editor in the cloud with google docs"

What do you like best?

Google Docs is a tool that offers google to create documents and store it in the cloud, so you can access them from anywhere we are, I like this tool because it facilitates the way to store documents and also to write, is the new option to forget about external storage devices, with only access to the Internet you can see our documents and can even be viewed through smartphones.

What do you dislike?

I have no displeasure or bad experiences with google docs, on the contrary I love the tool because it has facilitated the way to have my documents stored in the cloud and accessible from anywhere.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this tool totally for your daily use, it is a solution that has given google to be able to write documents in a safe way and without having to occupy space in our PCs, it is a very easy tool to use and easy access , you only have to have a gmail account and you can make the documents you want.

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

I use it daily to write my personal and business documents, it is excellent to keep notes and be able to access them anytime I need it, I also have the option of being able to print my documents stored from this tool via web, it is one of the best funicones, apart from the autoguardado.

"Creating and sharing"

What do you like best?

It does not require previous installation of software or office suites. It has most of the basic functions provided by traditional word processor, presentation and spreadsheet programs. It prevents the loss of changes in a document since it is recorded and saved every change automatically. It facilitates work together. The documents stored in theWeb, through GoogleDocs, also allow users, in Google ocs, different places, to access the same document, and edit it at the same time. Document management allows the creator of a document stiónbrindar several types of permissions to different users: the creator can send it for other users to edit it, or only to be edited, visible Changes and history control options are offered. GoogleDocs allows not only to save all changes automatically, but also All these changes are recorded over time.

What do you dislike?

Within their limitations I find that to work online is sometimes slow and the storage capacity is not much

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very good application because it allows you to see, create, edit and share documents however seeing them online is a bit slow

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

It has been very beneficial since you can work in text format, spreadsheets and presentation at the same time allowing people who are interested in the information to see it but can edit it if necessary

"Creador de Documentos Online"

What do you like best?

La facilidad que muestra este programa de diseñar con plantillas documentos es muy impresionante. Permite, ademas compartir el documento y brindarle acceso especifico a determinados usuarios. Con esta herramienta el beneficio es muy grande porque se puede editar un documento en vivo junto con otros colaboradores evitando la necesidad (como se hace con un documento compartido de windows) de "cerrar y abrir".

También es muy sencillo y dinámico. Las funciones básicas son las necesarias para trabajos sencillos y se pueden realizar desde cualquier dispositivo móvil y en cualquier parte del mundo. Google Docs ha hecho el trabajo muchas veces por nosotros, dándonos velocidad de entrega para la empresa.

What do you dislike?

Lo que no me agrada es que no tiene muchas funciones como la versión de Microsoft Word de escritorio. Haciendo la comparación es evidente que le han restado muchísimas posibilidades que si se quieren son esenciales para tener una versión Online completa.

Sin embargo es importante añadir que si cumple con lo básico de editar y ademas la función de plantillas hace mas eficiente el trabajo

Recommendations to others considering the product

Hay que tener en consideración las funciones que se quieren realizar.

Cuanto estamos dispuesto a modificar, entre otros son esenciales a la hora de elegir este producto de Google ya que como he dicho antes, no brinda una versión completa.

Pero para lo esencial que es editar y compartir es excelente.

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

Velocidad de entrega en los informes. Nos ha permitido cumplir los compromisos laborales de una manera brillante y sencilla. Poder trabajar en el mismo documento mas de dos personas a la vez es una de las mejores bondades de este producto.

"Excellent set of office tools by Google"

What do you like best?

Google docs is a tool that allows you to view and edit all kinds of text documents, the best thing about google docs is that being an online application you can share your documents with your colleagues so that they can be visualized at the same time by them. Google Docs allows the option of creating joint documents since it allows the simultaneous edition of the documents (this can also be disabled).

In general, Google Docs seems to me that it is designed for teamwork mainly, although that does not mean that it can not be used alone for other types of personal or work projects.

The same GDocs includes not only the text editor, it also includes google sheets (excel), google slides (powerpoint). All of them share features and have the advantage of being developed by google so you can share your documents on several devices if you share an account with each other.

The best of Google docs:

- Being linked to your gmail account you can work your documents from your computer, mobile or tablet.

- Support for any platform, whether desktop, tablet or mobile

- The applications are technically very powerful and have nothing to envy your desktop competitors.

What do you dislike?

To say something negative, although it is not Google Docs problem but they exist in any application hosted in the cloud, is that if you lose the connection to the Internet disappears the possibility of continuing to work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Google Docs regardless of whether you are a company or individual, I think desktop applications are at a clear disadvantage to those hosted in the cloud because they limit you too much and also the most known require the payment of a license, Google Docs is free.

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

In our company sometimes we need to work as a team in the creation of some documents and that's why the best of Google Docs is that we can work more quickly on some tasks that require simultaneous editing.

"Documents for all"

What do you like best?

If you have the need to make some form of form, and logically, you will have thought of Google Forms as one of the most significant options and with better results.The limit on Google Forms is set by your creativity and your needs, since it is a tool with a high level of personalization. Google forms do not need any investment (it's free) and you only need a gmail account to enjoy their services. The only thing you have to keep in mind is how to adapt them to your online course so that they are interesting for you and your students.If you have not tried them yet, you just have to put "Google Forms" in the search engine and that's it. There are more ways to find it (how to access your Google applications from your gmail account),

What do you dislike?

The design customization for the form is very limited. More advanced users can change the design to use the tool with a greater number of purposes. It is necessary to have internet to be able to use this tool.

Its handling could not be safe if the user does not create a good password and protects it, or if the user makes a mistake trying to share files with his group, and makes them accessible to all public. There are certain limitations regarding the capabilities that the tool accepts according to the format of the document: for texts, up to 500 Kb; images, up to 2 Mb; and for spreadsheets up to 256 cells or 40 sheets.

Recommendations to others considering the product

improve interface

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

It is a free tool, through the Internet, that allows you to collect information easily and efficiently.

With Google forms you can create surveys and forms in minutes to give a class, a talk or to ask your clients and / or collaborators.

"Portable, ágil y eficiente"

What do you like best?

Lo que me gusta de este programa es su sencillez de uso, y su portabilidad. Solo necesitas tener internet y lo puedes utilizar en cualquier dispositivo. También me agrada poder utilizar imágenes stock gratuitas. Otra gran ventaja es que no ocupa espacio en tu dispositivo, y la verdad es que eso es muy bueno si no te puedes permitir llenar mucho la memoria ROM.

What do you dislike?

Es un buen editor de texto, pero necesitas tener conexión a internet para utilizarlo, aunque hoy en día prácticamente cualquiera tiene acceso. Una pega que sí que puede importar es que el espacio en el drive es limitado para guardar archivos, pero se puede comprar más.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Lo recomiendo sin duda por muchos motivos. Es muy cómodo poder guardar los documentos en la nube sin temor a perderlos, así como compartirlos con tus compañeros para que ellos también puedan opinar y editarlos. En definitiva hace las cosas mucho más fáciles.

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

Yo personalmente lo utilizo para redactar en conjunto algún comunicado importante y noticias que puedan ser de interés para el partido. Es muy útil poder utilizar la escritura por voz si estás desde el móvil por ejemplo, ya que es mucho más complicado escribir desde ahí que desde un teclado tradicional, por lo que agiliza mucho más el proceso.

"One of my favorite resources!"

What do you like best?

What’s not to like? It is user friendly, you can add on templates, it automatically saves everything so you never have to worry! Here’s the difference between Word and Docs:

Word- your software starts to get laggy out of no where, and then... it’s blank. It quit after being non responsive. Your hard work wasn’t saved at all.

Docs- you can write one single word by mistake, close out of the window, and find it saved! While to some this maybe annoying, but to me, a medical student and RN who does research, Google Docs has been a life savor for me.

What do you dislike?

Nothing really. It would be nice to get some more pre made templates, designs, etc. but, that’s just my opinion. It kind of pushed me away at first, just due to it’s minimalistic features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it. Your sanity will thank you.

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

The benefits of it saving documents automatically, gives me a sense of trust in this software. Google docs helped me organize my life instead of cramming documents into file cabinets.

"Google doc, a word processor. "

What do you like best?

Google doc, is an excellent word processor that helps keep all our tasks or assignments in order every day:

1. It is a free digital tool that only requires to have a Gmail account

2. Store and organize work securely and can be organized through easily modified folders that are always available to group members.

3. Online storage, this will allow us to access them from any computer that has an Internet connection and we can share them with whoever we want, allowing them to edit, or even publish them so that everyone can see them.

What do you dislike?

Despite being an excellent application, it has some drawbacks,

There are certain limitations regarding the capabilities you can accept according to the format of the document:

For texts, up to 500Kb; images up to 2Mb and for spreadsheets up to 256 cells or 40 sheets.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In conclusion, for me the advantages are enormous, firstly for the fact of being able to carry out group work from any point that has Internet connectivity, to be able to find elements within a community, to be able to share the own creations, that all the documents are find in the same place, etc. I recommend it to the maximum since it has excellent technical support.

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

It is an application that has allowed to solve different problems thanks to its successful tools when processing any type of text, this application has provided wonderful satisfactions to our users and has motivated our company.

"Useful Tool, Love the Cloud Component"

What do you like best?

I love that I can access it anywhere and share access to anyone who can get it anywhere. The main benefits are that I do not have to worry about saving my work. It saves automatically every few minutes. I also do not have to save multiple versions. If I want to see an old draft, all I need to do is look at the revision history. This is lacking in Microsoft Word (so far as I know).

What do you dislike?

I wish I could align my text horizontally on the page, but that's about all I've found that I dislike. Also, if you want certain fonts, you have to add a Google Add-In. I have used Extensis fonts with success, but a few more standard fonts would add to the product's appeal. I wish it would auto generate a QR code for sharing each document.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You might like the other products in the Google suite if you like Google Docs.

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

Collaborating with colleagues is easy with the wiki functionality of Google Docs. Since multiple people can work on the document at once, it saves time. It can play the part of editor or publisher. It is also nice that the creator and owners of each document can choose how much power each person using the software gets. For example, to publish a flyer to end-users is simply a matter of furnishing them with a link or a QR code.

"my online editor."

What do you like best?

I like it to be a very useful application for my work as a lawyer, since I frequently use this software to write all kinds of documents in a very easy and practical way. I also like that it has templates to create documents of daily use as resumes , brochures, letters and project proposals.

What do you dislike?

I really do not have anything negative to mention about Google Docs, since it is an excellent application of daily use and high quality standards.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Excellent software very similar to the word of Microsoft but with the peculiarity of being in the cloud and having templates for the writing of documents of common uses, fully recommended.

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

Google Docs is the software I use to write all kinds of documents in my work as a lawyer and benefits me first because it is free, second because it is an online application, which I can use from any device and third because I do not have to worry about it for saving my information since it saves it directly in DRIVE keeping it totally safe in the cloud and making the changes automatically whenever they are necessary.

" A powerful free and online tool that offers the service of editing texts and spreadsheets."

What do you like best?

A powerful online tool that offers the service of editing texts and spreadsheets without having the program installed on your computer or other device. It is free, totally online for the editing of our documents. It offers many options that if we compare them with those of the editors of common texts, for example, Microsoft Word, we will realize that it offers a limited set of options that at the end of accounts can be cataloged as a basic editor. I also like the possibility of sharing documents and keeping them in my Google account.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I can detail in this section is that for those of us who do not have a good connection to the Internet, this product is simply inaccessible since the main thing is to have your Google account and good connectivity. Out of that detail I do not attribute any unfavorable features to this software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it for those moments in which we do not have a text editor installed on our computer or smart phone, because just by accessing Google we can use Google Docs to edit and create documents or spreadsheets, with the options of editing that we basically need when preparing documents.

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

With Google Docs I can access and edit documents that remain stored in my Google account, which I can access from anywhere as long as I have an Internet connection. My University papers and personal documents can be opened without the need for them to be edited with this product, what I mean is that it is highly compatible with other document formats and spreadsheets that we use every day.

"Web tool to create documents"

What do you like best?

Docs is great, allows you to make any document written online and is completely free. It is perfectly synchronized with Drive and thanks to this I can visualize any document anywhere because the mobile application is very good.

The files stored in the cloud are managed excellently and the visualization of them is quick and effective.

I love how I can open a Word here without complications, besides that I can collaborate with other colleagues the same document and save it automatically. Being able several people to modify it at the same time.

What do you dislike?

How is an online application depends exclusively on the internet connection. It also does not offer all the possibilities that Word or another more powerful text editor.

The interface of the app can be very simple for many users, therefore it could be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use Docs and you will see how your time is more productive, reaching levels of speed in the creation of documents. I recommend it for those tasks where you do not need a powerful text editor and extensive editing capabilities. In addition to being part of the Google suite can be synchronized with all the applications of the company.

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

The biggest benefit I get with Docs is the ability to quickly synchronize my text documents and send them by mail quickly, plus as it is a web application that works great in Google Chrome I should not open another program to create a document quickly.

"Docs is ideal for teachers and students is the perfect document processor for everyday use"

What do you like best?

The G Suite platform is a phenomenal tool for me as a teacher and, specifically, Docs is an integral part of my profession. Here is why I love:

- It is based on the cloud and is constantly maintained. So neither I nor my students have to worry about losing or losing it. It is always there for us (as long as there is an Internet connection).

- Almost all Microsoft Word features are there, with the exception of some. So if you're familiar with Word, you'll be fine using Docs. The configuration and appearance are a bit different, but they are easy to use and can be captured quickly. In addition, there are a lot of excellent YouTube tutorials that will present Docs.

- For the classroom, they can use Docs to monitor progress in a wonderful way. Just search on Google and you'll find many amazing ideas from other brilliant people.

- You can share files with students and do not worry if they lose them. In addition, they are digital natives, so they enjoy working on digital documents.

- You can use it to collect data on IEP goals or teams of teachers can collaborate on a document and store information.

- There are many excellent supplements to help students with disabilities.

- There is a voice-to-text function that can be useful for students / teachers, as well as the exploration function if a student needs to learn more about a topic.

- I can add voice recordings for accommodations for oral exams.

What do you dislike?

There are very few cons for this software:

First, you can only edit information if you have a Google account. (But this is so easy to set up and most people already have a Google email address, so it's almost never a problem).

Second: there could be pre-established templates so that the information that is added is formatted so that everything looks uniform.

As I mentioned earlier, there is a learning curve. But be patient, use YouTube tutorials when necessary, or ask a friend, and it will be fine! There are no real cons here!

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it to all and colleagues and students for the following reasons:

*IT'S FREE.

* Information exchange without problems.

* Save automatically (so you never lose information).

* Responsibility through the history of previous editions.

* Ability to restore documents (in case someone accidentally erases everything from top to bottom).

* Possibility of reviewing documents offline.

* Total versatility with images, text editing, font and real-time visualization of the work being edited.

* Access to mobile devices to review and edit on the fly.

* Ability to see who is in the document to discuss and discuss the topic material or project deadlines.

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

I have been using this software for more than 5 years (probably from close to its first version) and collaboration in real time has been the most important aspect of the use of this software. I have used it as a teacher and in my daily life, it is very good to make my job as a teacher easier because my students send me their work in this way and it is easier for me to correct them. The collaboration in real time is what brought me to this software for the first time and what impresses me constantly is how easy it is to use it and how well it works in real time.

Beyond collaboration, integration with Google Drive is very important to me and is at the top of my list. If I am collaborating with others or using this software at work, having the document in my network of shared and personal folders on Google Drive is very important.

In terms of Google Docs and the other software they offer, saving is not a problem at all, it is automatically saved each time the text changes. To write long essays and collaborate on projects with people, this functionality is very useful and I love it.

Other functionalities are excellent because the software remembers Microsoft Word, but the tools and the interface are much less confusing, although there are fewer actions to choose from in terms of document customization.

"An interactive and functional tool for everyone."

What do you like best?

It is a tool with which I can do all kinds of office documents, I like it because I can work with several of my colleagues at the same time in one document, another interesting feature is that it saves the changes made automatically, it is totally online and it also has a very good mobile application to access my documents from anywhere.

What do you dislike?

Being a totally online software has many limitations in terms of the size of the files I can upload and the elements I can add in each document. In addition, there are some formats of text files that are not compatible and others that lose the format when I run them with Google Docs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good tool with which you will not have to depend on the heavy office suites.

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

Google docs is very useful in our work because with it we can access documents instantly and keep them safe.

"Create, edit and store documents quickly and in the cloud with Google Docs"

What do you like best?

It is one of the best alternatives to Microsoft Word, but the best of all is that it is free and online, we can use it wherever we want and at any time, we can also access from any device such as computers, tablets and smart phones.

It is completely compatible with Microsoft Word documents so we can load them from our computer and open them with Google Docs.

We can work as a team because it allows us to share our documents with colleagues or collaborators who can make editions at any time.

What do you dislike?

I like Google Docs a lot, sometimes it can work a little slow depending on our internet connection, but in general it's just great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is one of the best tools of Google, we can use it for free and it is really efficient and accessible to everyone.

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

For me it is the fastest and most efficient way to create, edit, store and share documents.

"Fácil de usar y genial para compartir ideas de trabajo"

What do you like best?

Es muy accesible! Puedes estar en cualquier parte del mundo y tener acceso a ella siempre y cuando tengas conexión a Internet! También es muy fácil de aprender y no toma mucho tiempo para conquistar todas las grandes características que tiene! Algunas de las características que tiene es el formato, marcador, clic derecho para la investigación y muchos otros! Y es gratis también, ¿a quién no le gustan las cosas gratis? Y finalmente es muy fácil importar y exportar documentos para cualquier tipo de archivo que necesite.

What do you dislike?

Para acceder a todas las funciones que requiere el acceso a Internet que, no siempre puede estar disponible las veinte y cuatro horas cuando lo necesite. Tienes que registrarte y tener una cuenta de Google para usarla. Los datos se almacenan en servidores seguros privados de google. Esto ha ocurrido en el pasado con las cuentas de gmail, así que ten cuidado con lo que tienes en los documentos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es muy fácil de usar y en un par de días usted puede tener todas las características abajo. No te arrepentirás te lo aseguro

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

Esto nos permite a mí y a mis colegas compartir y colaborar siempre con diferentes ideas que tenemos para ayudar a mejorar nuestro negocio! No importa si yo o mis colegas somos porque siempre tenemos la capacidad de usar los documentos mientras tengamos internet. En general, hace que trabajar en equipo sea más fácil y eficiente.

"Incredibly Useful for File Sharing"

What do you like best?

I enjoy the ability to work on a document with multiple authors simultaneously. This gives the feel of a group effort instead of someone writing down their own thoughts in a group meeting.

What do you dislike?

Google Docs is a very simple word processor. Because of this, using other programs in tandem with Google Docs like RefWorks is not a usable function as it is with Word. Google Docs, though its uses are very helpful, seems to me to be a processor with fewer formatting and creative options.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is the simplest and easiest to use document sharing program out there. I would suggest that everyone should use it.

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

Problems which are easily solved with Google Docs are difficulties with document sharing, difficulties with Document storage, and difficulties in communication or editing. The share feature of Google Docs is incredibly easy to use, and even my coworkers who have a hard time with technology find it to be very easy to use. Storage in Google Drive makes saving files very simple as well, as one does not have to worry about saving copies to computers which may be lost. Finally, because there can be so many editors, final products go through much fewer editing changes. With multiple pairs of eyes on the document long before it is sent off to editing, individuals are able to do simple editing on their own. It strengthens the feeling that your input matters.

"Exceptional Google application for office support!"

What do you like best?

With this online version of a text editor we can make documents and keep them in our Google Drive account. This gives us the facility to access these documents at any time as long as we have an Internet connection. From my point of view Google Docs is a powerful tool that offers the service of editing texts and spreadsheets without having the program installed on the computer, tablet or phone, which I consider a great step because we should not worry about perform program installation processes.

It's free, totally online for the edition of documents. It offers a set of limited but essential options for managing documents on the web. It is a more than basic editor. It also offers the possibility to share documents and keep them in the Google account.

What do you dislike?

Honestly the only thing I can argue on this point is that for those who do not have a good Internet connection, this product is simply limited, since the main thing is to have your Google account and good connectivity. Out of that aspect I do not associate any unfavorable characteristics.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is very easy to work with Google Docs, it is a simple editor, it can be said that it is quite summarized if we compare it with Microsoft Word for example, it is manageable, I recommend it to create and share documents that we want to manage among a group of users, This is allowed by Google Docs and it is one of their strengths, so I recommend sharing the document to verify the attributions or permissions that are being granted to other users.

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

With Google Docs it is easy and timely to edit documents and save them in our Google accounts, which is beneficial because in the google account our documents are accessible at any time and from any place as long as you have Internet connection.

I use Google Docs to manage both personal and business documents on my work site.

Another interesting thing is that with Google Docs I can open documents created with other text editors, that compatibility extends us the possibilities in terms of the management of text documents and spreadsheets

"Google Docs is free and good"

What do you like best?

You can write from anywhere on the go. And collaborate with anyone. Great for classes, and great for business. No more sending documents back and forth and wondering where the conflicting changes are. Everyone can now edit on the great doc. Great for SOPs.

What do you dislike?

It's user interface could be better. Sometimes the tool you need are hard to find and you have to take a lot of time to look for it. Google Doc's search help function has helped alleviate some of this though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's free and comes with Google Drive. I've been using it since it first started and was basically one of the first cloud based document editing/creation tools. It's feature hasn't changed much but it has gotten considerably less buggy than when it first started.

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

Being able to collaborate with others in the company and being able to edit files live. Back in the day, we had to attach documents and number them version 1a, 1b, 2a, 2b etc and resend word documents back and forth. Which created a ton of confusion.

"A quick way to create the essential documents of the office."

What do you like best?

The ease of access and reliability of services offered by Google are very positive and valuable aspects, the workspace is well managed so it is very easy to create a document and the template gallery facilitates a lot of work, editing and creation tools available files work correctly and it is very easy to download the file when it has been completed or share it if necessary.

Get the latest files and documents created in the platform synchronized in the Drive is very useful and optimal.

What do you dislike?

When the internet connection is not stable the platform stops and you can not continue working on the document, it is a situation that when it happens is very annoying and does not allow you to make an emergency save, the options are very basic and traditional does not offer any particular service that makes it superior to the competition.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is essential to have a secure and stable Internet connection to access and keep creating the document online, it is very favorable to access from different devices and make files and documents quickly, shorten production times and facilitate a task that is very common in the office.

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

The documents and reports of development of projects and advances I execute in this platform for its ease of access and to be able to share it quickly or download it in PDF format to send it quickly, its ease of implementation is an important factor to take into account.

"Best for online editing and document management but needs to add more tools"

What do you like best?

Google docs is easy to use and fast document manager. It is fast, lightweight and user-friendly. I use it on a daily basis to access and edit my documents online. There are basic editing tools on the menu bar which are far convenient to use. One can easily start google docs without prior training. Its simple UI is a major driver behind its growing number of users.

What do you dislike?

It should add more features and tools. A regular user like me needs more customizations to enhance the quality of documents. So additional tools to build impactful documents is the need for a writer. As it already works fast, more editing tools will add an advantage while using Google docs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a handy tool to edit, share and access your documents, then Google Docs is the best tool for you.

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

In my daily usage of writing and editing docs, I need to access my work from work as well as home. In this case, I especially use Google docs as it syncs all my data quickly. I can access and edit my work without having to worry about saving it. That's the prime benefit one gets with Google Docs.

"Google Docs Makes Sharing & Editing Documents Easy"

What do you like best?

I love Google Docs because it is so easy to use. Multiple employees can make edits and suggestions to company documents at the same time making it really easy to share notes on projects or in meetings. Google Docs has all the tools you need to create and format documents just like any other good word processing program.

What do you dislike?

One issue that we found with Google Docs is that if an employee created a document and later leaves the company, when their account is deleted we have lost access to some documents and need to start over. This can easily be corrected by sharing ownership of documents, but we must remember to do that. It's just an extra step we have to take now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make the switch. Google Docs is easy to learn and implement in your company!

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

We use Google Docs exclusively for all our company documents. This makes it very easy to have everything in one place and create folders with training materials that can be shared with new employees.

"Seriously, how can I live without Google Docs?"

What do you like best?

This revolutionized everything about writing. School work. Work work. Anything collaborative. Anything private. I use this from everything from research papers to my private journal. I remember one of my older cousins probably 15 years ago carrying around a jump drive on her keys - the first time I ever saw one. However, I never really used one at college because I had google docs. I would use a computer in the library, another in a computer lab on the other end of campus, come back to a different floor of the library, and work on the same paper without interruption. I love the collaboration and have asked family and friends for a quick read and edit of a paper or blog or whatever. Also, there are so many plugins that make it easy to connect to citation managers like Zotero or blog publishers like Wordpress... it is just amazing!

What do you dislike?

Wow... 40 word minimum of things I don't like? Can I just say 40 more words about things I like?! Seriously, it is so good! I guess I don't like that it wasn't around sooner. I don't like that some people don't know about it or use it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it! You won't regret it!

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

I have a YouTube channel. I use google docs to write out scripts, to keep track of projects, to record things I've learned along the way, etc.

"Docs really got me through college"

What do you like best?

Docs was really useful by automatically saving my files. Additionally, because the software was linked to my google account/ email, it was extremely easy access. This program was extremely useful having a mac pc living in a MS world at my university. It made writing at home on my Mac easy and free. Whenever I would get to university I could log onto a Microsoft machine and easily download my doc onto the PC for final touches. Also, all documents get archived into your own personal drive which is extremely useful for later use.

What do you dislike?

The user interface did not 'feel as good' as desktop software. For example, Docs mimics MS word but some menu items are in different locations, and inevitably some things were just easier on the desktop. Sometimes I have trouble logging into my account even if I am logged into my google account. Because it is an online service you will need internet access to sync your file onto google drive, but you can still use the product without internet as long as you enable google drive offline access.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Google docs is very useful if you do not have MS office products. I think Google Docs is a no brainier for college students or professionals who want an easy way to save and later load their documents.

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

Google docs makes it easy to transfer between different PC systems such as MAC and MS.

"Very interactive web environment software."

What do you like best?

Google docs is a very powerful software that helps me with my daily activities in the office, I can create text documents, spreadsheets and everything from the web, it also allows me to organize my files and keep them safe in the cloud, I like it Because it has a very good dictionary and support for almost any language, another advantage is that I can share my documents with my colleagues very easily.

What do you dislike?

Although this software has everything to be able to create Office documents, it is very limited in terms of the options of margins and lines, besides, I have had problems to load large documents since its interface becomes very slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a tool that is worth using, since it provides everything you need to work without problems, keep in mind that it is ideal for documents that are not so extensive and do not require much customization of pages and margins.

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

It allows me to keep my documents organized, in addition I can review documents directly from the web without having to download it, it also helps me to take the information to all the departments of the company in a fast and efficient way.

" The easiest and fastest way to create a document "

What do you like best?

I really like to use google docs, I feel that it facilitates my life and my daily tasks, in my work as a teacher I need to create documents every day such as schedules, grades, letters and notifications, with this program I can create them at any time with just access to my personal account quickly, safely and the best thing is that it's free. It also has a variety of templates that are wonderful because they save time and effort, allow editing and make corrections of previously prepared documents and you can have everything perfectly stored and available when needed

What do you dislike?

The only thing I do not like about this program is that you need to be online connected to the internet to access documents and sometimes in my country it is difficult to connect, but this is not of great importance when compared to the great benefits that offers

Recommendations to others considering the product

I personally and professionally recommend using this program as a free tool that can give better results than some other paid applications and can be used very easily and practically without the need to receive instructions

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

In the institute where I work as a teacher every day I need to create or edit some document and with this great application I have managed to do it in record time, it has worked very well for all types of documents from a simple letter to a register of numerical qualifications, even to draw tables and simple graphics. I have also used it to elaborate very interesting teaching presentations for my students and I have obtained positive results when using this program for it

"LOVE this Service"

What do you like best?

I really like that everything is available and automatically saved on the cloud. The options of things I can do and the functionality are pretty good, so that keeps me happy. I can also use any computer anywhere and it's all ready to go! I really feel like the best part of all of this is that it is free and I don't have to count on my people having a software program on their computer.

What do you dislike?

I wish I could add my own fonts into the program. I also don't like that I can't do a mail-merge very easily for things like envelopes, etc. I really don't think there is actually very much that I dislike. The only other thing I could think of is they made it a little bit easier to make PDF's editable in Google Docs. Sometimes the formatting goes weird. Also, sometimes exporting to PDF messes up the formatting so I end up with an extra page in the document that I didn't want there in the first place. Also, printing formatting can be a little bit of a bother through the system, so I often have to go through the "use system dialogue" printing feature, which is a realy pain.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you aren't doing anything which requires a specific font that is not already supported in Google Docs. It makes it hard to add your own.

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

I'm using it to write reports and training documents that multiple staff member can use all at the same time so that we're editing and collaborating in real time. This really helps us save time by not having to save documents, send them, edit them, send them back, etc. etc. etc. I also really like that I can make assignments and assign them to people by linking their gmail to the comment and wait until they have resolved it.

"Vey integral and easy to use."

What do you like best?

What I like best about this software is how it facilitates our company on daily basis. It helps us make contracts with clients online as it helps us edit what we want and at the same time allows the client to also edit his or her part. We have everything registered on our company’s emails and it becomes easier to access information. I also like it because it has helped me make all the files records which goes directly to my senior who have to review them in real time. Finally, I can manage this software from my Google Gmail account thus making my email work easy to share.

What do you dislike?

One thing I dislike about this software is how it handles imagery on the docs. They apparently disappear off the pages and then appear again in strange places. It becomes hard to maneuver the document itself and can therefore make the formatting a mess.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Google Docs will help save your time and efforts by editing your documents. Try it and you’ll love it.

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

This software has really helped us edit documents together with customers. When we create a document, we give our clients an opportunity to edit until we obtain a complete document. It has made our work easy since it is very simple to use and can be accessible from anywhere.

"Google Docs - a game changer for an Editor"

What do you like best?

I love that I can go into suggesting mode to suggest edits to a novel. The old way I used was to add comments to a PDF, and not only was that tedious, it also took much longer and some comments were accidentally skipped over. With suggesting mode, you can directly edit the document, and the author can approve or deny each edit, one by one.

What do you dislike?

There's honestly nothing I dislike about Google Docs. It was a game changer for me, and has all the features I could ever want.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're an editor, this program is for you. You can make all your edits, and you can even do them in a browser window if you need to edit somewhere that doesn't have the program. You can chat with the owner of the document to share ideas, and users can watch edits in real time. It's the perfect product for anyone in this business.

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

I'm able to work faster and more smoothly with Google Docs. Before, editing was a tedious task, but now it allows me to work faster, therefore I'm able to take on more clients and make more money.

"A platform to gather ideas!"

What do you like best?

Google Docs is great platform where you can type your data and it saves it own its own. The doc could be shared with other people so that they can also edit simultaneously and give their input. Furthermore, if you don't want somebody to edit it then you give the person commenting rights or just viewing right so that your data remains safe. Moreover, you can make it offline, so it there is no internet connectivity around, it could still be reviewed. Additionally, it just functions like word document and it is totally free and accessible anywhere. It also provides you with different templates like book report and essay so your work becomes faster and easier.

What do you dislike?

There no such disadvantages of Google Docs but sometimes due to technical glitch the doc may not load and you may not find your data for sometime.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Google Docs is a great platform where many people can share their ideas at once and I would recommend it is used when many people are required to give their inputs. It is really easy to use and has mostly same features as word document so you already know its functions and so it becomes really convenient to use.

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

There are no such problems with Google Docs. The benefits of using it is that many people can edit is simultaneously and give their input. Your data remains safe in your google account and you choose who can edit your document.

"The security of not losing"

What do you like best?

Every day I have many activities as a lawyer and a university professor. For me it is important to work in order and save time and effort, so that I can truly rest after each day. Google Docs adapts to my needs. My students share their work to my account, and I make the corrections online. With my colleagues I share the documents that require the review of all the parties involved for approval.In both cases the tool facilitates communication, avoids confusion and delays in sending. And as an additional bonus we contribute to the environment by avoiding the use of unnecessary paper.

What do you dislike?

I have nothing negative to say. Since I discovered work with ease, Google Docs save everything directly in the cloud, losses of important documentation (work and personal) are not possible. In addition, communication with my colleagues and disciples is immediate despite the distances. Easily facilitates work and studies, I highly recommend it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend it. Google Docs is excellent for working with different documents and formats in one place, with ease to find the files, with an excellent spelling, with hitorial of the changes to the documents.

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

It is a very practical tool, for several reasons: 1) I work directly from Google Docs because it is compatible with different commercial and free systems. 2) I make slides, documents, forms, spreadsheets, all in one place. 3) It makes it easier for me to work in a team...

"Excellent in backing up data. Love how easy it is to share!"

What do you like best?

It's so easy to share with this. Like, in seconds you can share something with someone halfway across the word. Additionally, you can see live, in real time, updates. It's so fun! I'm actually using it right now to help someone update their resume.I also like that you can easily save, download, and do pretty much whatever you like in this software. Seriously, it's pretty awesome. I highly recommend it to business owners and would even recommend it over Word, in some ways. Great product, very, very, happy with it.

What do you dislike?

It's not got as many features as word so I wish there were more features. However, many of the features are available if you look online for them, and there are TONS of amazing guides. So it takes more work, than say, Word would, especially to set up or if you aren't automatically already using it. That said, I was fully trained on this software in less than a day, so it's well worth it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you love Google, you'll love Google Docs. It's easy, fun, and fast! I would try it.

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

I work with a lot of people and need real-time updates on what they're doing. This is great! It's really helpful when you're able to easily see what someone is doing. Then, you can see what they're doing right, what they're doing wrong, and help correct them. It's perfect and I would use it again.

Helpful?
