Google Drive & Docs in 30 minutes : the unofficial guide to Google Drive, Docs, Sheets & Slides Pdf Book Description:

Why you need to use Google’s free office suite hanks for picking up a copy of Google Drive & Docs In 30 Minutes, 2nd Edition.I wrote this unofficial user guide to help people get up to speed with Google’s remarkable (and free) online office suite that includes file storage (Google Drive), a word processor (Google Docs), a spreadsheet program (Google Sheets), and a presentation tool (Google Slides). How do people use these applications? There are many possible uses. Consider these examples: A harried product manager needs to work on an important proposal over the weekend. In the past, she would have dug around in her purse to look for an old USB drive she uses for transferring files. Or, she might have emailed herself an attachment to open at home. Not anymore. Now she saves the Word document and an Excel spreadsheet to Google Drive at the office. Later that evening, on her home PC, she opens her Google Drive folder to access and edit the files. All of her saves are updated to Google Drive. When she returns to work the following Monday, the updated data can be viewed at her workstation. The organizer of a family reunion wants to survey 34 cousins about attendance, lodging preferences, and potluck dinner preparation (always a challenge—the Nebraska branch of the family won’t eat corn or Garbanzo beans). He emails everyone a link to an online form he created using Google Forms. Relatives open the form on their browsers, and submit their answers. The answers are automatically transferred to Sheets, where the organizer can see the responses and tally the results.

A small business consultant is helping the owner of Slappy’s Canadian Diner (“We Put The Canadian Back In Bacon”) prepare a slideshow for potential franchisees in Ohio. The consultant and Slappy collaborate using Google Slides, which lets them remotely access the deck and add text, images, and other elements. The consultant shares a link to the slideshow with her consulting partner, so he can periodically review it on the Google Slides app on his phone and check for problems. Later, Slappy meets his potential franchise operators at a hotel in Cleveland, and uses Google Slides on his iPad to pitch his business. An elementary school faculty uses Docs to collaborate on lesson plans. Each teacher accesses the same document from home or the classroom. Updates are instantly reflected, even when two teachers are simultaneously accessing the same document. Their principal (known as “Skinner” behind his back) is impressed by how quickly the faculty completes the plans, and how well the curriculums are integrated. Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides take seconds to set up. The registration requirements are startlingly simple. All you need to do is provide an email address and answer a few basic questions on a Web form or your phone. No discs or downloads are needed! This chapter will also explain the Google Drive interface, and will give some tips on how to organize your files and folders. For this and all other chapters, I recommend using the Google Chrome browser, which is available for Windows, Macs, and Linux desktop and laptop computers. If you don’t have it installed, visit chrome.google.com for instructions to download and install the browser. Before we get started, I have a quick note relating to nomenclature.
