Pros

I used this majority of my way in high school, college and now the post graduate work like. It’s so easy to navigate and I LOVE IT I share documents with my colleges ans co workers it’s amazing.
Super easy to use since it's just like Microsoft Office. Great if your device doesn't have Office and you need to use the same platforms.
I love how easy it is to use and how file sharing is super integrated. The quality for the cost of the product is super.

Pros

Quick synching and the ability to organise folders and sub-folders is great. Overall, a decent program and certainly useful for small businesses such as myself.
What I like best about this software is its ease of use and integration with Microsoft products and services.
This allow my team members files to be in its own "space" and this was a good thing. This was what I liked about the OneDrive but.

Cons

Some options are missing from it, but that is to be expected from a web-based app. The only thing I dislike is how hard it is to open the documents generated in Google Docs through other software.
The downside of this is that someone can edit the document as you are presenting and mess with your presentation or confuse your line of thoughts.
The icons are small and it's easy to accidentally press the wrong button or hit the wrong combination of keystrokes and change the menu into tiny icons with no explanations.

Cons

OneDrive has changed in 2021 and this change has brought about headache for all. No syncing because the OneDrive is locked and awaiting action by users who has no idea as to what is wrong.
Where do I begin, it constant instability, it is very hard to use use, sharing process and access permission are coming from hell and the version control is simply sadistic.
The most problem I have as a user is the sync problem, sometimes it gets stuck and you have to restart your computer.

Our office uses Google Docs to transfer notes from management to workers and back to management. It has helped our communication immensely.

Pros

This software is easy to understand and use and view documents. I like the sharing option for others to work on my documents also, which helps my office work efficiently.

Cons

The software, and most online software, lags when a document is opened but is way faster than Onedrive by Microsoft.

Having documents easily accessible across multiple devices in multiple locations by multiple parties is a huge add to any business.

Pros

Good Docs is a great way to share files to different parties and allow live editing from multiple people. It's easy to see who is currently viewing the document and / or making changes, meaning you aren't accidentally overwriting them.

Cons

I have no complaints about Google Docs. I prefer this software over OneDrive products because the functionality makes more sense.

Works Well, But Lacks Some Functionality

Reviewed 3 years ago

Google Docs was the first cloud-based office system that I used. It got me started with working on documents, etc. online, vs. working only in a desktop environment. My experience was positive overall, but I needed a platform with more functionality, so I moved to a different cloud-based platform.

Pros

Google Docs makes it easy to work anywhere. Open a browser and begin working on documents, spreadsheets, etc. Files are easily stored in the Google cloud for safety and easy sharing.

Cons

Google Docs is not nearly as functional as OneDrive. That's not to say that it isn't good. It's just not as good.

Good over all but desktop apps offer more complexity

Reviewed 3 years ago

I am fairly statisfied with Google Docs, however MS Word is still the better app when it comes to document creation & editing. MS still wins here :)

Pros

It's FREEEEE & It has a good balance between desktop solutions "aka : Microsoft Office/Word" and a web-based / cloud-based solution such as "Docs". Additionally, it works on any platform be it Microsoft Windows, Chrome OS or using Apple's Mac OS, that's why I don't feel restricted when it comes to using it, as long as I am connected to the internet.

Cons

Internet connectivity is required to use it and Microsoft Word still provides more complexity and options and with Microsoft OneDrive, the gap is narrowing.

Google Docs is so easy to use! I wish Microsoft OneDrive and Dropbox worked this well. Google Docs is the best cloud document platform.

Pros

Once I started using Google Docs I have only used cloud based documents. I love that no matter what computer, device, or location all of my documents are always available. Also I love being able to collaborate on documents with anyone you want! Say good by to sending versions of the same word document over and over again. All changes are automatically saved, tracked, and incorporated!

Cons

I wish more people used Google docs so all documents would be stored, saved, and shared online. Some users don't understand how different google docs is compared to Word docs.

Better than OneDrive

In my business, we are told to use OneDrive to share files. I still use Google Docs. It's far superior (and now I've convinced my boss of this as well!)

Pros

So easy to use. So easy to share. Everyone already know Word, PPT, and Excel, now you gift them with being able to share the same files online and have people edit them all at the same time. It's wonderful.

Cons

Some of the Microsoft Excel functionalities doesn't exist in Google Sheets. But those are some advanced functionality. 95% of my needs from a formula perspective are in Google Sheets.

Not perfect as a word processor, but the gold standard for collaboration

Reviewed a year ago

Google Docs is the gold standard for document collaboration and sharing. You can send a link so that everyone always sees the latest file (instead of emails bouncing back and forth), you can give and get and accept feedback. Word is the better processor, but OneDrive is unreliable at best for filesharing and the collaborative features in OneDrive are just awful. For anything that will be seen by anyone but me, Google Docs is all I use.

Pros

Google Docs makes it SO easy to collaborate with others on documents, give, request, and incorporate comments, and share files that can be updated in realtime. For collaboration and sharing, Google Docs is the only platform I use.

Cons

As a word processor, it doesn't have all the great features that Word has. It's not ideal for creating a new document if you need a lot of formatting options (ESPECIALLY tables, which are a nightmare in Docs). Luckily, you can always just upload a document you've created in Word to Docs and it does a pretty good job keeping formatting.

The strong points of google docs is collaboration; the ease of sharing and using this with your team is the competitive edge. If you are looking for software that has better features and functionality, use Onedrive by Microsoft

Pros

The pros of this software is the security, ease of use, and accessibility. I have used it to store important documents, videos, and other files. Great for use as storage for sharing with team.

Cons

It does not have as many features as Onedrive by Microsoft when it comes to editing documents. Google docs does not support certain functions when it comes to editing documents and processing data on spreadsheets. There are also errors when trying to download documents; I often have to convert it from word to a google document then download it as docx.

Thanks to Google Docs it was made possible to our team to keep logs on Gamekit problems with no difficulty to share the information needed.

Pros

Google Docs is a must have if you want to make a team work: you can share a document to be read only or modified with two clicks, and you need only a mail address to access it.

Cons

Microsoft Word is way better than Google Docs when we look at the modification features, but one is expensive and the share feature is more complicated (must have OneDrive) and the other is free and easier to use.

Amazing way to work "live" on documents rather than sharing via email

Reviewed 5 years ago

Amazing team collaboration that comes at an amazing cost of FREE!

Pros

The flawless synchronisation of files and their contents. Outperforms both DropBox and OneDrive in terms of the number of conflicts and the ease of use. Even the more remedial staff can become incredibly proficient and leverage the power of the documents within a few days.

Cons

The complexity of having documents that are updated in real-time means there are certain limitations on the feature sets, complicated formulae in the Sheets element, and the advanced referencing in the word processor spring immediately to mind. I'm not sure that I'd write a textbook in this program, but it is more than adequate for basic to medium complexity documents.

Student Engineering Projects

Reviewed 4 years ago

Where Google Docs exceeds Microsoft OneDrive, is recording the updates individuals make to the doc/sheet. In group projects, you HAVE to know who has completed what work; otherwise, multiple problems can occur within the group dynamics, often resulting in decreased project productivity.

Pros

The ability to work on documents simultaneously with projects teammates has been highly beneficial with Google docs. It is easy for multiple people to sign on, and for everyone to see the progress made by each person.

Cons

The problem we have often run into, is formatting. Google formats their own way, but most often we had to change to a Microsoft Word format to be able to submit to most research platforms. So, if formatting is not as strict to the common Word styles, then I would highly recommend this product for group projects over any other.

I enjoy using Google Docs personally and professionally. Because of the vast tools out there for other users we have to be able to adopt other software quickly. This was one that was adopted very quickly with users because it is similar to OneDrive.

Works Ok

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

It works for collaborating with other coworkers and others that I need to share files with

Cons

Its not as intuitive as dropbox or Google Docs, and thought we have one drive, our team has seemed to migrate to Google Docs for our file sharing.

We have One Drive as our "cloud" for saving and sharing files.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

It can be used and worked from online from anywhere, similar to google docs. It is a fail safe way to back up files as well.

Cons

I do not find it as easy to use as google docs. Many people use google docs so I am forced to have two different places to keep and share work. An interface would be nice.

OneDrive is useful and works for its purpose.

Cons

I only used it because colleagues were using it. More people use google docs to share.

Collaborating

Reviewed 3 years ago

One drive is just like google docs, but safer, since it will close if idle

Pros

I like that I'm able to access documents from anywhere! As long as I'm logged in, I can share and create folders.

Cons

At least in my district, I must log in our website for my 365 account including the onedrive. If my computer is idle it will kick me off the document I was currently on, so I have to continuously refresh.

Since use at a school the ability for the students to share and turn in their work with the teachers through 365 and our LMS Schoology.

Pros

The ease of connetabilty with multiple device platforms and share ability of files.

The lack of a full Chrome product to add to the share ability of google docs.

Really? Another application?

Reviewed 2 years ago

It makes me crazy. This may be because of our internal security but the whole login "thing" with this seems inconsistent and annoying. I understand the reason for it and how it's used, it just makes me nuts sometimes.

Pros

It does provide users with the ability to collaborate. I realize this was put in place to compete with Google Docs. I do like it better than Google docs (mainly because it 'plays nicer' with Word and Excel).

Cons

I have very little occasion to collaborate so that feature - which is the main thrust - isn't much use to me. Frankly, Sharepoint works just fine for that and we'd already been using that for a while. I suppose I'm in the minority on this but I just really dislike it when I feel that using any application is forced on me.

Perfect place to store in the cloud

Reviewed 4 years ago

My experience is perfect, I always use it for university and for work

Pros

It is a perfect place to store your files in the cloud and share them with other people or between your different devices. It's free and you only need a google account. Everyone usually has one

Cons

I do not see any inconvenience, you can even edit files shared within it with google docs

Take your files everywhere but keep them local as well

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall OneDrive is great. Having access to my files anywhere in the world but also having them able to be stored locally/offline is one of the best things I have found

Pros

Love that I can have my files locally on my computer but it syncs and I can access them from anywhere

Cons

Doesn't share as easily as Google Docs, Relatively little GB space before you need to purchase more, not as giving to non-profits as Google
