Google Docs is a remarkable product and if you haven’t had the pleasure of using it, I suggest you start.
Now I started using Google Docs when I first received my MacBook and I didn’t have Microsoft Office. I have to say I was lost… I mean I was groomed and nurtured all my work-life for Microsoft Office and I have this new laptop (a Mac, which I was not too thrilled about) to explore and figure out how to produce documents. I then discovered Google Docs for the first time and it was easy. Google Docs provides you with same type of programs that Microsoft Office Suite provides but better.
First, you must set-up a Google account and log-in. You’ll want to click on the Apps square button on the top right. This will open up all the Google goodies you can access.
Google Drive is the cloud storage space of where all your Google Docs will be saved to and shared from.This means you can access it anywhere and any time as long as you have internet access.
Imagine you are working on a document that you need an off-site coworker to take a look at and make some edits. You can share the document directly with the coworker. This is great when a virtual assistant needs to share and update documents with a client.
Here’s a tutorial I put together for your viewing pleasure…
Let me know what you think of it and also if you’ve used any of the additional apps to your Google Drive.
