Google Docs Updated To Gmailification

Google Docs Updated To Gmailification

The Search engine giant, Google released an update of Google Docs which improves its functionality. With this update Google Docs will have become easier to find, share and organize documents. The update is basically related to improve the page where users select which documents they need to access.

Google has embedded new filters which are especially designed to help users such as private filters and visibility filters in order to navigate to their required documents. Mostly visibility filters allow users to find out their private or public documents separately. Whereas ownership filters make documents searching process easier for users.

Moreover, Google docs has incorporated with a “Priority sorting” filter to documents list. This feature brings the top most unread documents at the top of the list automatically for the user’s convenience.  It is quite similar to Gmail “Priority Inbox” feature which sets the important messages to the tag of priority inbox.

Google Docs is also incorporated with a preview pane at right corner of the page which displays the information of last viewed documents. If the documents are video files or photos then you can see them as full screen slideshow.

The final and last addition in Google Docs is “Home” menu item.  This feature allows users to manage their documents just like managing Gmail inbox. You can archive the unused documents using the home list menu of Google docs.  Google Docs has changed the “Folders “into “Collections”, which again similar to Gmail labels.

This update has been embedded to Google docs in order to make Google docs easier to navigate.  It is quite useful and effective to use updated version of Google Docs. Finally, the combination of priority sorting, Home menu, and filters definitely make your working easier.  This update can easily manage the overloading of documents to Google Docs to provide faster access to documents.

Download Cloud Connect Free – How To Install / Integrate Cloud Connect With Microsoft Office Suite

Cloud Connect – a plugin, Google is planning to release shortly, will integrate Microsoft Office Suite with Google Docs. The word ‘Cloud’ in the name signifies that it has something to do with ‘Cloud Computing‘.

If you always wished that what ever changes you made in a word document that you were editing be saved elsewhere, preferably online, you’ve got it now! Cloud Connect, automatically syncs what ever changes you make in your Microsoft Word document, to your Google Docs account, when you hit the ‘Save’ button. Ofcourse, here we assume that you have internet connection which is working fine, and you are connected to the internet and most important of all, you are using the ‘Cloud Connect‘ Plugin.

Some of the advantages are you don’t have upload the data every time you save it, for sharing the same with others. The moment you save the doc, the data is available for others to view it. Cloud Connect currently supports Excel and Powerpoint apart from Microsoft Word. Multiple people can work on the document at the same time (user conflict might creep in here, under such circumstance Google puts an alert prompt asking you to choose the version you wish to keep). You have options to switch back and forth, based on versioning history.

Microsoft has similar plans, online integration. Drawback with Microsoft’s Online integration tool is that users have SharePoint in between, also seems like Microsoft has some work that needs to be done in Excel front.

As of now, it is available for all the Apps Business customers. Commoners will still have to wait to get hold of this plugin. If you wish to volunteer, you can get on their list and Google will notify when opportunity is available (volunteer form link).

How Can I Read/View PDF in GMail


Earlier, it used to be a bit painful to view any PDF attachment in GMail. Google had a ‘View as HTML’ option for PDF’s, before users can decide to download the PDF.

The problem with this option was that the alignment would go wrong most of the times, and it was difficult for one to get the best view of what the PDF looks like before it can be downloaded.  Also the other main problem was, earlier when the PDF’s were viewed as HTML, the images were stripped off the PDF’s to handle the loading of the file in an effective way. So if you were to get a PDF with lot of images, you’d pretty have no idea what the content was lest you downloaded it.

But now Google Mail has an in-built PDF reader, using which users can view the content of PDF without downloading it.
