Google adds more collaboration features to its G Suite
Google has just added some new features to its G Suite that will make collaborative tasks a bit easier. Google Docs, Google Slides and Google Sheets are the main beneficiaries of this update as the tools now get Google Cloud Search integration, some new templates and couple of very interesting add-ons. However, probably the most important change is that those who use the suite from mobile devices can now finally suggest changes.
Let's begin with the new add-ons that most people would surely love. Google allowed partners like DocuSign, LegalZoom or LucidChart to make extensions for the suite. One of the coolest things that I've seen is how easy it is now to spot the differences between two docs using the Litera Change-Pro and Workshare add-ons. Additionally, the Google Cloud Search integration means that you'll be able to quickly find any additional information available on the company's cloud storage without even having to leave the Docs or Slides interface.
In case you're interested in the new collaboration features, we should start with the fact that both Docs and Slides now save multiple version of each file to make it easier to track changes. Moreover, it's now simpler to see the original version of a document and you can also accept or reject all the suggestion made by your collaborators with just one click.
Even though it's not as big as when Google added offline saving capabilities to its productivity tools, this update is still welcomed and a positive sign for the suite's regular users.
