I spent a week fixing backup and organization oversights, searching for files and generally wasting time on things I should never have to worry about. It shouldn't be this hard when the whole function of drive is to backup and organize. They won't have another hour from me.
I wish drive supported more Excel formulas and more formatting options because sometimes there's a formula that clearly works in any other spreadsheet editor but doesn't work in drive. And it's frustrating. The good part is that document editing and sharing is free.
seems it can work and sync faster, but overall it's great and convenient. there are more and more cloud services out there these days but this one is a decent one (plus it's google, so...)
Google Drive is a decent cloud Service provider with options to edit word and excell documents in browser, which is a nice touch. My only complaint is that Google should off more free space as a lot of their competitors do.
Great way to create documents that are stored on the "cloud" and that allows collaboration with multiple people. It doesn't allow you to do everything that Microsoft Office does, but its free!
Google Drive is incredibly useful for sharing documents so you don't have multiple versions. It's easily accessible from anywhere, since it lives online, and sharing/collaboration are simple enough.
The spreadsheets aren't as robust as Excel. They're lacking in several simple concepts and it's a little clunky to use, by comparison. It needs work. But it's free and easy to collaborate one.
Word docs are pretty basic, but they get the job done.
Google Drive integrates easily with some other programs (Smartsheet for example) which is helpful. You can also open & save any email attachments to your Drive, which is helpful. Organization is pretty straightforward.
For home use or SMB that don't require a complete Microsoft Office set up this is the way to go. You may still require some Office products, they're more robust, but it could save time and money using these Drive tools.
All in all a good tool to add to your toolbox.
