  • Docs are much more useful for group work now

Late past year Google introduced custom templates in Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms for faster formatting.

A total of five new features have been added.

Specifically for Docs, individual users inside of a collaboration can name versions of a document, preview "clean versions" of documents, and also accept or reject all edit suggestions at the same time in a document. The tools allow teams to work on the same document at the same time. Most of these updates focus around collaboration, but the service is also getting support for Google Cloud Search and the company is adding new templates and add-ons from partners like LegalZoom, DocuSign, LucidChart and others. Perfecting documents requires numerous edits and updates.

The other big changes are around version history. These new updates are a step in the right direction. The changes made to the documents may now also be accepted and rejected, wholly. You'll now be able to name separate versions of the same file, which should be a helpful way to clarify which versions are final and which are still in progress.

Gert to become hurricane, second disturbance could be Harvey
The storm should to strengthen over the next 48 hours and could become a hurricane by Wednesday, forecasters said. Early Monday, it was located parallel to North Florida, about 475 miles west, southwest of Bermuda.

Both functionalities can be accessed in the Select Tools Tab in the review suggested edits option. So even if users don't have access to a PC on which they originally created a document, they can access the document on another device. Changes in a specific document may now be suggested via iPhone, iPad or Android devices. This feature is available from the three dots menu icon on the bottom right of the screen in all three productivity apps. Now your team can use templates which can help them in saving their time on formatting. Add-ons are also developed. We thought, why not bring these two together? These give users the ability to customize templates and get the work done in the manner expected. The template gallery offers several new templates with built-in adds-ons, including a mutual non-disclosure agreement template called Mutual NDA from LegaZoom and DocuSign.
