Zoho Docs is the PERFECT alternative to Google Docs!

2016-11-04

Even though my default office program is Google Docs, through my experience with Zoho, I cannot find anything inferior about it.

Pros

It has all the features of Google Docs, and in some cases even more.

Cons

Even though it is as good as Google Docs, it's not Google Docs.

Free alternative to google docs business

2018-03-07

Its free alternative of google docs, docs spreadsheet i use it almost daily and sharing it with others is also very user friendly and hence i use it within my company team

Pros

We use zoho docs in my company for everything and google docs charges for the same features in their business plan but zoho gives it for free

Cons

Nice very close to what google docs provide but at times the loading time is a lot and slow performance when using zoho spreadsheet, formulas are not as good as google docs

Good alternative to Google Docs and definitely a better option than Microsoft 365

2018-11-02

Pros

Easy to use, runs smoother than Microsoft 365 and it's definitely got more storage space than Google Docs.

Cons

It's not as well known and that means if you're wanting to share docs with people who don't have it they might not recognise the link you're sharing. I've had a few people suspicious of the link I've sent them.

Decent documents application, user interface not as clean as Google Docs

2019-02-11

Pros

As a current user of Google Docs, I find Google Docs to be very intuitive and easy to use with a simple and clean user interface.

Cons

Although the user interface is similar, I would still prefer Google Docs. Also, the sharing feature is very confusing!

Not as powerful as Google Docs

2019-04-16

Pros

It works okay but definitely isn't as powerful as office 365 or Google docs.

Cons

You loose a lot of integration features that you come to love with Google. However, it does the job.

Just everything you need!

2017-03-17

Zoho Docs is the best document management platform. Using amazing features which provided by Zoho Docs are allow you good chance to collaborate with your colleagues and also you can access the permissions. You don't have to download all files, just sync some important files and use them offline. Zoho Team had done a great job with that one. I think everyone needs that kind of docs program, so it definitely worth to try.

Pros

Price is reasonable, awesome features which are better than Google Docs in some cases and of course customer service is helpful.

Cons

Actually, I did not see any negative sides of Zoho Docs, but extra new tools would not be bad)

Zoho Docs... Like Google Docs, but with more privacy

2018-11-21

Pros

We live Zoho Docs and Google Docs, however, sometimes you want more privacy and security with your docs and data.

Cons

As long as Zoho and Google continue to compete with each other, it won't be hard to see both of these solutions in competition and improving over time. With that said, we would like to see better mass management tools for sorting, editing, deletion and more.

I have been extremely pleased with Zoho Docs. It's a perfect alternative to Google Docs.

2017-10-20

Easy word processing and document creation, stored conveniently in the cloud.

Pros

It functions very similarly to Google Docs, which I have grown accustomed to.

Cons

The main drawback to this software is that it doesn't have the following the Google Docs has, which makes the pool of possible collaborators/people I shared documents with significantly smaller.

Zoho Docs: Easy and Intuitive

2018-10-23

All in all, I wish I could replace Google Docs with Zoho Docs.

Pros

Given my personal preference, I'd rather use Zoho Docs over Google Docs.

Cons

The problem with Zoho Docs is that it isn't ubiquitous; whereas Google Docs is. If I want to share something on Zoho Docs they need a Zoho account and if they don't have a Zoho account they need to create one and this is considered a hassle by many, and indeed is a hassle.

Solid and sometimes superior replacement for Google Docs

2019-03-15

As always with Zoho products, I was pleasantly surprised at the features provided for free. However, certain workflow and performance issues keep me from using the tools full-time.

Pros

Zoho Docs provides feature parity with Google Docs and improves it in many respects.

Cons

UI fonts are too small and too light to be read easily by these old eyes. I couldn't find any settings to change the default other than increasing the browser zoom. That's bad. Everything loads slowly on underpowered devices and there's no feedback as to the state of the interface. UI elements are therefore often slow to respond. No integration with Zoho Notebook, for some inexplicable reason, which makes Notebook kind of pointless. No integration with Evernote either so that's a definite workflow issue.

The best online word document editor.

2018-01-28

This product is better than Zoho Docs and matches almost everything on a wishlist of Microsoft Word.

Pros

Google docs is great for collaborating online in real-time. The features match almost everything available in higher priced options (like Microsoft Word) You can save and export to different formats.
