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

Reviewed 2 years 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.

Certainly performing well...

Reviewed 5 years ago

While the program isn't perfect, Google Docs is by far the most easily accessible and widely used word editing programs. It excels at what it needs to do, but lacks on what it could do.

Pros

To start, Docs get's everything you need done. Editing, typing, sharing—it's all easily done. In a school or work environment, the commenting mode and ability to share documents easily makes working extremely efficient. In comparison, a traditional document editor would require you to manually send the file, have the other party edit it, then send it back. In docs, being able to instantly see any...

Cons

Despite it's strengths, Google Docs holds a few annoying points. A major disappointment lies in the lack of font support. While some of the major, non-standard fonts like IBM Plex Sans are available, a majority of the fonts that are available aren't well-known or widely used, which led me to using the same 4-5 fonts over and over again. There is no option to add third-party fonts either, which isn't...

Literally the Best Word Processor

Reviewed 3 months ago

Again, made my life so so much better at work. I can't imagine a world without it now.

Pros

I think you probably have to live under a rock if you don't know the gist of how Google Docs works, but I love Google Docs and use it for everything at work. I work remotely and often need to have a number of staff work on numerous reports at once. Google Docs is seamless for collaboration, if someone messes up you can always go into the history and fix it, and sharing is easy. Additionally, the @ feature where you can assign a comment to a coworker is the best thing ever invented. Microsoft is trying to replicate, but their online sharing is such a mess compared to Google Docs, and their products are way too complex for the output they give you. I swear by Google Docs and Google Sheets at work.

Cons

The only thing Microsoft has over them is the spelling and grammar tool. Google's unfortunately is subpar at best. Whenever I need to do a grad school project, I literally type the whole thing in Docs and export it to Word just to make sure the spelling and grammar is up to par. I would love to not have to do that anymore, and I can tell they are working on it. Once they figure out how to improve that, Google Docs will be a perfect product.

Google Docs as a healthy and reliable replacement

Reviewed 5 years ago

The main feature that was used with Google Docs is the ease of use when it comes to collaboration between employees. We are a few people that need to update the sheet whenever certain elements or deliverables are completed, and the fact that you can update the sheet anywhere, anytime and on any device makes this incredibly powerful.

Pros

The fact that its entirely free to use if you have a valid google account. What I also like is the fact that you can edit documents that was created on another software not related to Google Docs. You can easily save and share the files with others, and the simultaneous editing makes this tool fantastic to use as a team.

Cons

Sometime it may be difficult to correctly paste or insert certain elements in a document as the document may not scale correctly, but this does not happen often.

Best web based Document Editor you can get for Free

Reviewed 4 years ago

Since I am a Blogger and a part time recruiter, I happen to compose articles and receive a lot of Resumes. I find Google Docs very useful. I can access Resumes on the go on my mobile using Google Docs app for Android. Since it is from Google, we can store documents directly to Google Drive. The thing that I feel it lacks is support, I have to look for help topics or community forums in order to find an answer to a question that I have. The need seldom arises though.

Pros

The great thing about Google Docs is its free to use, supports standard formats like .doc, .docx and .odt and files are stored on cloud. Google Docs app is also available for Android and iOS, so it can be used on the go. Another great thing is it supports simultaneous modification of documents by multiple users. Most word processing features are available so we don't have to spend a lot of money on other commercial document editing software.

Cons

It has a web-based editor that works only when we have internet access, so if we are working remotely we need to first download documents and edit them in any other document editor. Support is available via forums or help section of Google Docs, unless we have G Suite subscription. No Windows version of Google Docs is available, can only be access via browsers.

Great free option for documents

Reviewed 3 years ago

We have used it to publish documents to our non-office educators since 2013. This staff ranges from 8 to 35 people depending on time of year.

Pros

Pretty intuitive to any experienced word processing user. Reasonable range of basic features such as fonts, text boxes, shapes, tables, and formatting. Most features that aren't there aren't missed very often. Collaboration tools and ability to jointly edit in real time is best I've seen over the 40 years I've been using document editors. Easy to share with other Google users within predefined Groups. Good security and availability of Google servers makes it the most reliable and secure method of making IP information available. Ability to cross-link documents with other web resources as a matter of course is extremely helpful.

Cons

Importing from other software (Word, Open Docs) results in massive formatting issues. This is probably it's worst problem. Tables can be awkward to work with, especially copying/pasting from multiple cells into another table.

Great word processor for Offline and Online team working with rich features

Reviewed 3 years ago

It’s a real business handy text and document editor and a great word processor that I use every day via my mobile and tablet everywhere and I've continued my writing and editing via my desktop pc in the office. It saves you time and the result you get is great because it also exports docs to PDFs and other common files. It helps a lot in creating articles and writing official letters and it is a very fast and smart word editor.

Pros

It has all the features needed to edit and create a text and create a new document, and when you write the new text or edit any document is automatically saved, and if you are connected to the Internet, it is stored in the cloud, and if you do not have Internet access, it is saved on your device, then It is automatically saved and synced in Google Cloud after connecting to the Internet. Files are always available offline or you can access to the via Google Doc cloud storage anytime, anywhere and all these premium features are completely free, and you can always back up, edit or share files and documents with anyone easily.

Cons

In my opinion, since Google Doc automatically saves edited documents, it should always have a backup copy of the original version that can be accessed if necessary.

My Professional (and personal) Office suite

Incredibly amazing. I use Google Docs every day, for professional and personal use. Professionaly I can't live without it, and without its integrations.

Pros

I LOVE the ability to start to write a document, compile a sheet or a presentation on my phone, and then continue on my Desktop or Notebook. I share documents with my colleague and clients to keep us constantly updated on modifications or variations. I LOVE the cross platform easy of use and sharing functions.

Document generation and collaboration made seamless

Reviewed 3 months ago

Google Docs is a go to for work and document generation. The ability to seamlessly collaborate with anyone in the organization or third parties is crucial to my job. Its integration with other Google Drive software like Sheets or Slides is excellent too.

Pros

Google Docs is a very easy-to-use software. Integrated directly into Google Drive you can easily create and organize your documents. The ability to collaborate in real-time is exceptional and truly boosts productivity in group settings. Sharing documents and managing access is very simple and straight forward.

Cons

Personally I am not a fan of the home screen where Google suggests which documents you are more likely to access. I prefer the default "My Drive" layout where it presents my documents exactly as I have organized them. No other complaints about this excellent tool.

Perfect Word Processor for Everyday Use

Reviewed 5 years ago

We will never use anything other than Google Docs for our business. It has completely transformed the way we work and the APIs provided by Google to third party services such as Zapier and Integromat allow us to accomplish virtually anything we need without employing bizarre third-party tactics and hacks.

Pros

I love that Google Docs works the same on every computer across every device. We are a digital marketing agency and we interact with upwards of 30-40 documents a day - all on Google Docs. Working in Google Docs with a variety of clients means that every client can access and interact with our documents without worrying about any features their version of a software may be lacking. Likewise, we can count on knowing that any changes our clients make in Google Docs will be reflected accurately on our end because their version of the app is the same as ours. Google Docs is superior for collaborating with multiple people across multiple locations. The revision history is robust and allows you to look at every version of your document ever created.

Cons

The worst part of Google Docs is that it lacks many major features available via other word processing programs. In addition, it lacks the ability to interact with certain aspects of a document via browser that are native to the browser experience overall. For instance, if you upload an image to your Google Doc, you are unable to download the image without actually downloading a full HTML zip file of the document and then extracting the images from the directory. Very frustrating. Add-ons provide some additional functionality but can be spotty because they are not developed by Google, but third-party developers who may not keep the add-on up to date with Google's software.

The evolution of office automation is amazing!

Reviewed 5 years ago

One of the biggest benefits I have obtained with Google Docs, is that I have managed to expand the number of clients in different latitudes, thanks to its platform, I have obtained jobs that are made with the calculation tools, thus taking complete inventories of products and services that are offered online, an advantage to be able to mass my income as a professional exercise. Being free, more and more entrepreneurs with whom I work use it as a tool for first-hand work. Another aspect that has benefited me a lot is to have observations instantly, which allows me to invest my time in parallel projects in the best way possible, all thanks to Google Docs. So I have achieved on a personal level, send colleagues scripts or work papers in which I share information on my professional practices.

Pros

One of the things I like most about Google Docs is the compatibility it offers, you can open a document from your computer, tablet or smartphone, it's amazing how you can work literally from anywhere. It offers you the alternative of using your email Gmail as a hard disk in which to share ideas, work papers, budgets, inventories, presentations, and more files, it is so simple that you just have to...

Cons

You put the benefits in a balance and you will realize that it has no structural aspects to improve, I have not found negative aspects to identify them. What gives me peace of mind is that the support of Google makes Google Docs is constantly reviewed and improved if there is any problem.

The only word processor you need!

Reviewed 5 years ago

For most of my life I've always used Microsoft Word as my go-to word processor. However, in recent years I've come to rely almost entirely on Google's suite of office products to get my work done. One of the things that has become an integral component of our workflow as an agency, is that we can share access both internally and externally on specific documents so that we can control exactly who can see what, and what rights are assigned to different people on different files. That's made the movement of information both within our own team and with clients tremendously easy, as compared to the old way where you would have to email a file back and forth and constantly worry about version control.

Pros

What is there to say about Google Docs except that it's a full solution replacement for any word processor that you've ever used in the past. That being said, my two favorite features or the Voice Typing feature, which most people aren't aware of; and the ability for multiple people to collaborate in real-time in the same document. These two features alone make it more valuable than any other word processing tool I've ever used, regardless of the company that put it out - whether it was an open source alternative or Microsoft Word.

Cons

The only annoyance I have with Google Docs, is that from time to time when you export a document in a different format, like a PDF, sometimes the formatting that you see in the Google Doc version of what you've created doesn't match with the output that you get when exporting. However, over the years it has gotten significantly better, and where maybe I would see it happen half the time just a few years ago, now I see a minor issue, maybe, on every one out of 10 exports that I do. Other than that, the software is a dream to use and just works.

I LOVE Google Docs!

Reviewed 5 years ago

I use it every single day! Organization of notes, business plans, outlines, task lists, team efforts, and even my utility overview is used on Google Docs and makes my life easier.

Pros

I've been using this software for years now and have migrated ALL of my Microsoft word documents to Google Docs because I can access it from anywhere, on any computer, smartphone or tablet as long as there is an internet connection. This makes my life WAY easier. I love how it has the same features as MSWord and how I can share it publicly or privately with other email addresses. And I love the "sections" adding by new title sections in the document making it easy to navigate. I also love the template designs which speeds up the process very fast. And it's great other team members can be allowed to edit a document. It is a complete all inclusive software that makes my life WAY easier and I will continue to use it daily like I have been.

Cons

Two things only, even though I limit members from copying or printing, they still take screenshots of sensitive material. Perhaps adding a "NDA Agreement" section would help so sensitive material is not abused. Also, I have about a dozen different emails but it can be hard to remember or navigate to each docs sometimes, especially after stated "signed into too many accounts" which slows me down and makes matters confusing. If there was a way to make this easier to navigate, that would be awesome. I guess allowing other team members that edit a document to be easily distinguishable to who edited what would be highly beneficial as well.

Best Free Web-Based Document Editor

Reviewed 3 months ago

Overall, I love using Google Docs. I have moved most of my day-to-day collaborative tasks to Google Docs. Once the product is in the final version, I usually move it to MS Word for finer editing and presentation, but all the work on content is done in Google Docs.

Pros

The interface is very intuitive, if you have used a word processor like Word before, you will find most things where you expect them to be. The system runs inside a browser and can function fully without any plugins, so it is almost entirely platform agnostic. Nothing changes from Mac to PC to Linux. Very easy to collaborate in real-time, editing together, making comments, adding people to make suggestions, assigning tasks. All of these are very simple to do. Integrates seamlessly with Google Drive and other Google products to make it easy to use/share.

Cons

The app interface for mobile is not as intuitive. Compatibility with MS Word formats is hit or miss. Offline editing requires a plugin and is somewhat limited.

A bonus within the Drive Implementation

We moved our storage to Google Drive, and didn't even plan on utilizing Docs and Sheets that much. But they've completely replaced Microsoft Word and Excel internally. We use it internally for WIP, collaboration content and just about everything. It was incredible to use when we shifted to a work from home style of working and we've all kept it going since returning to the office.

Pros

I love the ability to share and collaborate in real time within the document with our team. The ease of sharing a document within our Drive team, as well as clients that aren't using Drive is an incredible resource that our whole agency utilizes.
