Awesome Storage Program

2019-01-15

I have used Google Docs for years.

Pros

I love that I can keep track of all my files and teammates' files in one place. The search bar makes it really easy to find documents or sheets that I need.

Cons

It can get a bit crazy in Google Drive. If you aren't careful you'll have a mess on your hands. Make sure to keep everything organized from day one or you might lose important documents.

Best way to store my documents

2017-06-15

Pros

I love google drive. It's so easy to store my documents and find them later. I have used other storage services, and google has the best interface with best searching capability.

Cons

When you search for an xls or non-google doc file, it finds the file, but doesn't let you open as a google doc.

Google Drive

2018-11-04

Pros

While doing my graduate work I often times had group projects that had to be coordinated virtually. We used Google drive to store all our group work and collaborate with one another. The Google products are essential, in my mind, for a virtual team. They make communication seamless.

Cons

The Google doc features don't always format correctly.

Ok place to store files

Google Drive has only ever been the best experience for me.

2018-07-12

Pros

I love the ease of having all needed documents I care about in 1 place. Knowing that they are in a cloud and not in risk of being lost is very comforting.

Cons

I have used Google Docs for years and throughout all of my usage and experience, I really am unable to think of a single negative for using Google Docs.

Great Product!

2018-06-13

ability to share files, great integration with Gmail and google docs, easy to use.

Pros

I know that this is essentially dropbox, but I think it is superior because it offers the same functionality, but everyone is on google in some form or fashion.

Cons

I wish there was more storage included in the G Suite, but I get 100 additional GB. It is very reasonably priced.

Works with Google Docs so you can access the files through Explorer

2019-03-22

I use Google Drive on my computer to access the files that are in Google Docs. I find it to be easier, as I don't have to open Google Chrome and navigate the Google Docs interface, and instead I can access it like a normal folder in Windows Explorer.

Pros

I am able to access the documents that I have made with Google Docs, but inside Windows Explorer instead of having to open Google Chrome web browser and understand the interface.

Cons

It does not work perfectly with Microsoft Word .docx files. It appears to work, but later you may find that it has removed formatting or lost parts of the document.

Google Drive helps me share documents with clients.

2017-10-12

Google Docs helps me stay in touch with clients and access my documents from anywhere.

Pros

I like that I can upload a file and access it from any of my devices. This is important because I'm not always at home and it's much easier to keep files on the Drive than to try to email them to myself. I also like that I can share documents with clients and I can see their edits without them having to email the document to me. It really helps me stay on top of their needs.

Cons

I don't know if Google Sheets falls under Google Drive for review purposes, but I find it annoying that the column width doesn't save properly when going from my phone to my computer.

My experience using Google doc for school work has been positive.

Pros

This is a great, free service from Google. The best feature is that multiple people can work through the same document at the same time, which is great for group projects.

Cloud storage and file sharing made effortless

2018-09-19

It would be great if Google had somehow allowed to apply my own license to my Google account and then allowed me to modify the MS-Word/Excel document in MS-Word/Excel format.

Pros

Unlimited storage when files are Google Docs or Google Sheets file.

Cons

You can't modify a MS-Word or MS-Excel file without converting that to Google Doc/Sheet.

Extremely powerful, amazing value for money.

2019-01-21

Drive easily ties into Google Docs so we can access and manipulate all sorts of files.

Pros

Google Drive is, quite obviously, made by Google - my favourite company when it comes to everything digital. Drive is yet another one of their beautiful, efficient and easy to use websites which my team has absolutely loved. Thanks to an extensible API, you can link it into other pieces of software, for example, in our case, Eversign. We store all our documents in Drive where we can rest assured it's safe and easy to access.

Cons

I believe it could have better pricing when it comes to large amounts of storage needed, as we mostly buy in bulk for each member of our team.

Accessible anywhere with Google Drive.

Pros

Google Docs is extremely intuitive and flexible. I can easily create professional looking documents, and the configuration is much easier than Microsoft Word in many ways. This is a great (and free) solution for students and professionals.

Cons

Due to the nature of some of my work, Google Docs is difficult to secure for HIPAA compliant purposes. It is great for most documents, but the lack of security features prevents it from being an all-in-one solution for someone in my field.

Google Docs, easy, fun, cheap but it is not MS Office

2019-03-05

Very easy to use, fun, fully integrated with gmail, google drive, etc..

Pros

This product is very easy to use, as is fully integrated with the rest of the Gsuite apps like sheets, docs, present, etc it laks some advanced functions that are present in MS office, but as for the price tag it really blows out MSO Ive been using Google Docs for about 7 months now and i like the ability to grab any computer and log into my saved files in the cloud with total security

Cons

Laks of functions compared to MSO, not very handy when working with MSO files, because it needs to convert the original file into google docs format before you edit, and then you end having 2 different files (the original MSO file, and the new Google Doc file)

Easy way to save, review and share documents

2018-08-03

Generally Google Docs and Google Drive have been the most useful software.

Pros

Google docs is very easy to use. I frequently use Google Spreadsheets for budgeting purposes, and to save Word documents or similar onto a platform I can access almost anywhere. You can share a document with someone and both can simultaneously edit and make comments to the side. Wonderful for working with someone from a distance or just using it for yourself. No need to hit the save button, because it's automatic.

Cons

It's not very compatible with Apple Pages.

I love all Google drive softwares!

Pros

I LOVE Google docs! I've been using it for at least 6 years. It all began in my undergraduate days and loved the ease of sharing and autosave. I cant tell you how many times I would forget to save a paper on a different software and have to restart. Now it is the only software I use. I can easily locate previous documents from any device and continue working on projects.

Cons

Formatting can be difficult to change if you are not familiar with the tabs. But that is super minor!

Can do better

Google Docs can do better.

Pros

It compliments the google drive very well.

Cons

The format needs to be sleeker. Moving between folders and editing options leave a lot to be desired for.

Google makes products that help on the go professionals get the job done from anywhere.

Easy access on Google Drive. Google is just amazing!

Pros

It pretty much takes the place of Word but it is better because I can edit from my phone on the go.

Cons

I really don't have any complaints. Its a little hard to get used to at first, just finding your way to different formatting tools but once you use it a bit, its really easy. I haven't tried any add ons yet, but I think these would make it even better if you have more specific document types to write.

Outstanding software- strength is collaboration

2018-09-05

Google Docs enables me to work seamlessly with clients and colleagues alike. I especially like the comment feature, and the ability to share the same workspace when telecommuting.

Pros

I work on google docs personally and professionally. As a teacher, I have used it with my students during group projects, as well as during professional development. Personally, I use google docs as my go-to cloud-based word processor. It's fast, simple to use, intuitive, and has almost all of the same functions as Microsoft word. In my businesses, I used Google Docs to store ideas, plans, forecasting, and live client documents. What I like best about it is the instantaneous saving. So many times I have lost Microsoft Word documents due to the software crashes on my Mac. With Google Docs, if the browser crashes, the latest piece of work has already been saved. I definitely recommend this software.

Cons

Google drive is difficult to organize, and my documents tend to get lost in the Google Drive abyss.

Google Docs is great!

2018-11-20

Overall I would highly recommend Google Docs. Nice and simple to use.

Pros

It is an awesome way to collaborate on a document. It has a lot of features of Word. It even has an offline mode!

Cons

The functionality of Docs on mobile is kind of messy in how it interacts with Google Drive. Wish it didn't require so many different apps to use the whole Google Drive ecosystem
