Pros: Where to begin? It's the only platform I've found that works seamlessly with any device I've used. It's intuitive and utilizes a simplified word format which allows for exporting, sharing, and editing of documents seamlessly. Also, it's practically impossible to "lose" of fail to save any document you are working on.

Cons: The only drawback to this platform can be in being careful to assign clear roles for who can edit or changing the document. One feature that would be helpful would be in greater clarity for archiving the documents being shared or edited so that there are no unintentional changes that can't be unmade or corrected.

Overall: Senselessness, convenience and ease in collaboration.

Pros: Admittedly, when I came on board I was not a fan of Google Docs. I had used them in several organizations prior to joining the team, and I was not a fan. However, once we started sharing documents and everyone was actually using them I found that this was a great tool for the business. Since they are stored in the cloud, you always have access, and they aren't taking up space on your machine.

Cons: There are certain features like being able to adjust margins easily, and other functionality found in programs like Microsoft Word that would be fantastic if they were included.

Pros: Google really has found a way to integrate their services into every aspect of my life. There are fewer bugs to do it online than in my regular word server

Cons: I really can't think of a single complaint. I sometimes wish there were more templates for powerpoint or excel had more tutorials, but I would complain about this in the regular microsoft as well.

Overall: Group work finally made easy!

Pros: I have been using google docs since college. Then it was a great tool for group projects and editing while working in a group. We didn't all need to huddle around one computer we could all work on our own time and edit when was convenient for us. I still utilized this tool in the workplace, especially when creating sign ups to blast in an all staff email, that people could put their names down and sign up at their convenience.

Overall: It is a tool that I frequently use when working on something with others. However, I do prefer to used Microsoft word when I am working alone.

I've used google doc. from anything from gradebooks to budget spreadsheets.

Pros: It is able to be shared and instantly saved. It helped me so much to be able to stay on the same page with my fiance at the time when we were planning our wedding. We could edit at the same time.

Pros: I have been using Google Docs on my phone and tablets, and i am thankful to google for keeping it free. It is lightweight, but has all the necessary features for a basic user. It is portable and can be accessed from anywhere. No worries about losing data. Stays archived for ever

Cons: Advanced features, which are required for my office work. Sometimes i feel a slight latency from time to time

Overall: Google Docs manage my personal spreadsheets and documents. In this age of phone data packages and wifi, it is safer to keep documents on the cloud

Pros: Our team has been using Google Docs as the main service for creating and sharing docs & sheets. It's very efficient and has great features. Perhaps my favorite feature is being able to edit a document with multiple people while seeing their changes in real time.

Cons: One of the problems of Google docs is the lack of a clear structure when it comes to creating and viewing files. It's super ambiguous how files are stored and where are these folders (at least to me). I wish there was a clear file hierarchy, especially when it comes to shared folders. I currently rely on the search instead.

Pros: On a variety of different projects, I was able to collaborate with up to 15 other individuals to collect data from a variety of sources in one document. The ability for multiple people to access and edit a document at the same time makes it easy to both look at progress in real time, but allows for chat features to communicate during the process.

Also, my team and I never had an issue with inserting media from a wide variety of formats into the program. I have yet to include content from a video file, audio file, or image file that could not be recognized by the system.

During college, countless business professors would encourage collaboration using this software because they could be included to check on progress.

Another good feature is that the document creator can control permissions of who can edit and view material in the documents. This prevented any unwanted changes to important material. Furthermore, the autosave feature is invaluable and has saved my teams multiple times when power or a connection loss has occurred.

Cons: With the document files, my teams sometimes wished for a program that allowed users to format the layouts according to gridlines. We wished that we had more freedom of content editing to include more detailed graphs and image drawing abilities than the software already provided.

Overall: Overall, the greatest appeal of this program was the ability for multiple users to edit content in real time. This saved a tremendous amount of time as team members didn't have to rely on constant email updates to see what new information was available about a client or analysis writeup. This saved countless hours of miscommunication by providing instant access.

Pros: Ease of use, cost. Real time collaboration on docs is excellently implemented.
Running in-browser means no extra software needed, and implementing 2-factor auth makes it perfect for travellers.

Cons: Everyone can see a different folder structure for the same work depending on how they've added shared files to their drive.
Team Drives help up to a point but not being able to share out subfolders is limiting.

Daily use with many teams, and very helpful.

Google Docs is good, but Word is the industry leader, so now that Word online is competing with Docs, I find myself using that platform more often nowadays.

Pros: Super quick to get started, which makes this a great dumping ground for thoughts, ideas, and reminders. You can color code, add check boxes, mark things as complete, and share notes, so if you want to be a little more organized you can too. We like to use it for a revolving list of new client information, until the client has a full profile created elsewhere, and to share links among the team.

Cons: It is limited in it's organization, so it's not great for long term note storage. It's really easy to accidentally delete something, and if you are writing more than a paragraph, it should probably go somewhere else.

Pros: I would like to highlight several points
1) The interface is based on a text editor that we all know so it makes it very easy to manage
2) The possibility of editing, creating and saving documents online has infinite advantages, such as the ability to open the file anywhere and at any time.
3) Everything we create can be shared online with a single click with who we want.

Cons: The fact of being able tohave add ons is an advantage in itself but in the case of Google Docs it is difficult to find them in the menu and give them an appropriate use

Overall: I use it almost daily both for work and for study and it really facilitates the creation of files with the possibility of sharing online easily, more in the case of my work where I manage accounts in other countries.

I have enjoyed using Google docs. I have incorporated it into both my work and personal life.

Pros: Google Docs is a very important tool for anyone who works in a team. Being able to simultaneously edit a certain document is something essential. Plus, it works quickly and, despite not being as professional as Microsoft Office's programs, it has all the functionalities you need. Another great aspect is that you can save these documents on Google Drive and then open them at any computer you want just by logging in.

Cons: The biggest problem is when so many people want to edit the same document at the same time, because then you have major possibilities of having lag. Also, there are some aspects that I think could be imporoved. An example would be making tables in docs, they are not very attractive and somehow limited, but still, theu fulfill perfectly their function.

Overall: I find Google Docs very useful in my work. You can save a lot of time by simultaneously editing a document. It is true that then you need to have major compenetration with your team mates, but this can be easily solved. You probably will not use it for a very important or official document, you may prefer Microsoft Word, but or the rest is perfect.

Google Docs makes it very easy to collaborate with team members!

Pros: Google Docs organizes my documents into one place that I can access from different computers. It also allows me to easily share documents with my team.

Cons: I think it would be helpful to have more templates available. I love the templates that are currently offered but a better variety like what is offered through Word would be helpful.

Yes, I will agree to the point that it is one of the best place to keep your documnets.

Cons: Some time it takes too long to reconnect and synchronize, even if my internet connection is great. Another thing that bothers me is that I can not use the right click which has become for me an automatism and is used everywhere on the web.

Overall: Smooth user experience and accessible from everywhere.

Pros: Google drive allows our nonprofit to share and collaborate. Before this software, we would have to use our separate computer filing systems and email them back and forth. This has helped our operations become streamlined and organized

Cons: There are still a few features that need upgrading in google drive. For now, there is no functionality to password protect documents. Also, working with images in documents still remains clunky and not very easy.

Overall: Helped us become more organized an efficient. Instead of maintaining our own filing systems, we can now work collectively on one.

Pros: The list of Pros for this software are too many to list. Unless you are a very, very advanced user of Microsoft Office, there is virtually nothing that MS Office can offer you that Google Docs can't also do. Not to mention, Google Docs means easy, secure cloud based documents that you can access at any time from multiple devices - and even collaborate with others in real time. Formatting options, themes, tables, styles - all of the "bells and whistles" you'd come to expect from MS Office are available in Google Docs.

On top of that, there are third-party plugins available that extend Google Doc capabilities even further into niche areas, including automation through integration tools like Zapier and IFTTT.

Cons: The print layout options are the only area where Google Docs seems inferior to MS Office or Apple Pages. The print layout options are very limited.

Overall: I will never use desktop publishing software again thanks to Google Docs.

Pros: I love the capability to add edit and create documents with coworkers. The extra capability of viewing it from any location gives it a huge range of flexibility that you can't find from most other cloud based software. This combination alone is amazing, but being able to do all of it for free makes Google Docs/Sheets unbeatable.

Cons: The only problem I've ever run into with Google Docs/Sheets is capability when I compare it to Microsoft Excel. Excel has a very capable VBA back-end that gives me the ability to make almost any custom template that I need to. In our business, I code much of our process improvement working documents with VBA. We can export out of our MRP straight into a script and create all the graphs and statistics we need. I really wish Google Docs had similar capabilities

Overall: Free ability to edit documents real time with collaborators from wherever I am.

Pros: I love that you don't need to worry about version control in Google Docs, because everything is updated in real time. It would be a nightmare to try to circulate a Word document around to four different people on our team for their edits, and then to try to compile all those edits back into one place. It's much easier to share a Google Document with them and allow them to edit or comment as they like. Google Doc integrates well with email, sending you updates when new comments come in on your document or when someone else has shared a document with you. All of our various Google Documents serve as the central location for all of our institutional knowledge, keeping all of our policies, procedures, and records in one place that's easily accessed by all.

Cons: I wish Google Docs was organized a bit better. In my opinion, Dropbox does a better job of creating a central company directory of files, so that when everyone logs in, they all see the same layout. With Google Docs, each person's layout and organization of files is different, so it's easy for things to get lost or for the sheer number of documents to feel overwhelming. It's also hard to see who has been given access to what, so it can be a little tough to make sure the security settings are the way you want them to be. If you want to restrict a team member's access after they leave the company, for example, it's hard to see what documents they've been given access to.

Overall: Cloud sharing is another way our far-flung team stays in touch despite the distances and time zones that separate us. Being able to edit a document in Google Docs in real time, and to easily share our work with several team members, helps us to feel like we're all working the same space together. It's also key for our institutional memory; rather than having documents scattered across individual laptops, we can create a central trove of information that will remain constant throughout any employee turnover.

Makes it quick and easy to access everything, everywhere

Pros: I'm a huge fan of Google Docs/Google Drive because of how easy it makes it to access my files on the go, from the road. It's also extremely easy to share files, folders, info.

Cons: Since I have several gmail accounts, when I login to Google Drive it's never on the correct one and gets confusing.

Pros: It is great that all team members have access to the same document with all changes tracking in real time. It saves a lot of email and document attachment.

Cons: I am very familiar with Microsoft Office products; the Google Docs documents feel similar, but because they are not exactly the same, I am not as efficient using the Google Doc as I would be using a Microsoft Office document.

Pros: You can keep all you documents in one place, share then and recall then on your phone if you need to. I can even work on the document on my mac computer.

Cons: As long as you play with it at least once you can easily figure out how to use it. It took me a little while longer to figure out how to send the document to someone else.

Pros: I thoroughly enjoy being able to work with a group at different times on the same project. Using Google Docs allows me and my team to brainstorm and group think as well as come back and edit projects and instantly allow my team to see the changes.

Cons: Google Docs can be confusing and act different than other document producing systems. It may be use error but I just find certain tasks on Google Docs way more difficult than the same tasks on Word.

Overall: In order to work with a group that is not all in a central location this is the ideal product. This product also allows for a reduction in waste at offices.

Cons: Well, it opens in a browser, so the browser takes some space in the window. Matters if you are using a small display.

Overall: Love the collaboration feature in google sheets.

Pros: There are a ton of options when it comes to sharing files with other collaborators. Live editing (being able to see edits being made by collaborators in real time) is amazing! Also, exporting in different file formats to save a copy locally is really great.

Cons: Sometimes the auto-sync features with items on your desktop can be confusing, especially for very LARGE file sized items.

Overall: Being able to collaboratively work on documents is very beneficial. For instance, there are a few of us that use one document to input and review statistical data. It helps that we all have access to the same document.

Pros: Collaboration and mobility. Instead of sending files back and forth, being able to share a document and collaborate among my team members is priceless, specially spreadsheets to generate data via google forms or any other means. Also like the fact that every change made to a document is recorded with the user and the change that was made, this makes it easier to keep track of versions or revisions.

Cons: I'm a power spreadsheets user and the thing that I don't like is that I can't get to the "Default printing specs" on my spreadsheets, so every time I want to print something I have to select the size of the paper, the margins and remove the grid lines.

Overall: It has changed the way we work, we can collaborate and get solutions faster, and it has empowered our team to work remotely whenever necessary.

I love that you can generate a shareable link so that anyone with the link can view the document - you can also allow others to make edits if you want to. Storing them online via Google Drive is another added bonus especially since we're a remote team - no need to worry about whether or not the file was saved in a particular place - as long as you have internet, you have access to your documents.

Cons: I suppose offline access to documents in the event you're somewhere without WiFi would be handy.

There is also very little lag and very few bugs to be worked out. It is one of the most frequently used tools on a day-to-day basis where I work.

Pros: Collaboration is easy and extremely powerful in Google Docs.
There are more than enough features to get the word processing I need done.
Google Docs integrates with Google's other grate software tools, making it even more valuable.

Cons: I have trouble finding much wrong with Google Docs. As I sit here I am without a complaint to mention.

Overall: Google Docs has pushed the boundaries of what's possible for word processing and has set the vision for how it should work.

Pros: Let's my work team collaborate on documents and work off of a live document. This totally eliminates emails going back and forth with changes. Also, I love that it is free!

Cons: The only con is that not everyone uses it yet and sometimes I have to walk people through using it. But, that is rare.

Overall: Collaboration, live documents, cloud storage, free!

Great substitute for Microsoft Word!

Pros: Google Docs is simple and intuitive. It has all the right features without having excessive bells and whistles, which are often confusing and of little use. The ability to share and collaborate as well as revert to a previous version of a document makes life so much easier. It's also great to not have to worry about hitting the save button. And it integrates almost seamlessly with MS Word. Not to mention, it's completely free with no ads.

Cons: My main complaint about Google docs is that the way the documents are stored, by default. They are stored in Google Drive, which isn't always the most intuitive when it's time to retrieve a document. Of course this can be customized, so this is a minor concern.

Pros: Have teams working in 8 different countries. Google docs real time collaboration makes the team lot more effecient.

Cons: Look and feel and user interface can be made more in line with present day software tools. Offline editing is also needed.

Pros: I love that google docs is free and cross platform. It has all the tools and capabilities that other paid options have but for free.

Cons: The only bummer is it's run by google which in my book is just an automatic bummer. Sometime the interface can be a bit confusing.

I mostly use this to prepare and share documents at work.

Pros: It is extremely convenient to have access spreadsheets and word documents from any computer available as well as sharing documents between myself and other coworkers.

Pros: Google Docs is not and was never intended to be a replacement for Microsoft Word. For that matter, I don't think they had such lofty ambitions for Google Slides or Sheets, either. But they're workable, right? There's nothing functionally wrong with the app. You can use it from your desktop or on your phone as long as you have Internet access or even cell service. It saves the document as soon as you stop typing, which means you can pause in the middle of a thought or as something distracts you and you don't have to worry about what you do with your phone before you can get back to it. It's just really ideal.

Overall: I like its seamless integration with the rest of what we use around the office. We're a Google Apps family and I use all of the same stuff at home, too. I pretty much live in Drive and when I venture outside, it's only to RingCentral's Glip, which also integrates with the kinds of files I edit using Google Docs. So it's something I use just about every day and it came with my Gmail account so there's really no room for me to complain.

I love sharing docs with my family and friends!

Pros: It's great to be able to send, edit, and view all at the same time as it's a shared file. It works really well when you're planning things and need to have multiple people using docs at the same time.

Overall: It's great! Sharing is great.

Google Docs allows anyone to share documents anywhere with a minimum of hassle.

Pros: When you want to share a google docs document you click the share button and get a pastable link, or you ener the recipient's email and select what privelages you want them to have. That's it. You're done.

Cons: The only negative about google docs is that compared to Word, it has a lot less features, there are no macros (which I have grown very used to), but in normal text editing you wont really find yourself using those anyway. Plus, docs is 100% FREE!

Pros: I have not had any Microsoft Office bloatware on my computer in years. I can now do all the daily work stuff I need to do Microsoft-free.

Cons: Layout is always a challenge when compared to Adobe or Microsoft products. You really need to work hard to get things to look good if you don't use their templates.

I love this software. It's life-changing.

Pros: I love that it's an easy way to have all my important files backed up and ready to be shared. The shared editing tools are also amazing.

Cons: When I have two Google accounts open, I get very confused as to how to open up the Google drive for each separate account.

Pros: Google Docs is great for simple, short documents, especially when collaboration is needed. It has all the basic features any word processor should have and no more-- the simplicity is appreciated in comparison, say, to Microsoft Word's "feature overload." Cross platform support is also good. My team uses it extensively for brief documents and love it.

Cons: Google Docs works increasingly poorly the longer a document gets. I had trouble loading a 20-page paper I was working on for a post-grad degree program, for instance. I also worry about its proprietary file. While you can easily export everything to universal formats for safety, I still worry.

Overall: Team collaboration and cross-platform handoff is unmatched

Pros: I love the way that I can set up a document quickly, rename it, share it, and invite anyone I want to collaborate with me. Being able to see all of the edits done by myself and others is invaluable and makes it way more useful than Microsoft word.

Cons: Google docs don't translate PDFs as well as word docs, and they don't have easy to find and use templates

Pros: I like that the software is easy to use. And provides ease with opening files. Links too can be opened with this.

Cons: The Only Problem With The Software is The Pricing. I think more people would use it if it were free. But I understand money needs to be made, so I would say make a more affordable version. And make an expensive version with all the Perks!

Overall: Nothing in Peticular. Just an understanding of how software like this works

Pros: Google Docs works great. I have an LG phone which is an android and i have Google signed on all the time. When Docs are ready and send to me I am to sign and send back. I like the fact that I can start to create the doc from my phone and sign on to my laptop and access it from there.

Pros: Our marketing team uses Google Docs for a variety of reasons, but it makes the writing/editing process an absolute dream. When writing press releases or blog posts, we don't get versions mixed up or spend time editing the wrong piece - our entire team can have it up at one time and talk through it together in a meeting setting and make changes in real time.

Cons: No real complaints on this software. If I had to pick something, it would be that someone can view anonymously with the link if they aren't signed in - you should have to sign in to view or edit documents.

Overall: Seamless writing/editing process in team setting.

Pros: 1. I am also a writer and I find google doc very helpful in writing, editing and saving the files without any hassle.

2. The use of Google doc is very simple. Options, tools and overall GUI are very user-friendly. Even a new user can learn its use quickly.

3. It saves automatically whatever I write and even if there is network failure whatever I wrote before that failure would be auto saved.

Cons: 1. Its grammar and spelling correction needs improvement. It is very basic and it eclipses many good features of the google doc.

2. Loading time of the document as well as doc main page could be improved.

3. Shortcut keys for adding header and footer is very confusing.

Overall: Easy to use and the content is saved automatically
