Google Workspace Hidden Features

Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) is a powerhouse of productivity and collaborative tools in the workspace. But it can be overwhelming to learn and understand the multitude of features in all its applications. Here are some hidden features of Google Workspace you didn’t know about.

Microsoft Office Editing in Google Docs

Microsoft Office documents can be edited using Google Docs, and you can even use the collaborative features of Google Workspace, with the capabilities to edit, comment, and collaborate with other users. This is a great way to collaborate and edit without having to convert the file type.

Connected Sheets

The Connected Sheets feature in Google Workspace activates when using the Sheets data connector and allows users to analyze up to 10 billion rows of data, thanks to the unlimited space of cloud storage. 

Google Assistant Integration

Google Assistant can integrate with Gmail and G Calendar, but it’s particularly helpful with G Calendar. If you’re on the road and can’t remember the exact time of your next meeting, just ask Google Assistant. It also works for rescheduling meetings as well.

Calendar Scheduling

Speaking of G Calendar, Google Workspace also offers a feature that will find an open block of time on your calendar and do the scheduling for you.

Explore

The Explore feature in Google Workspace allows you to explore relevant content and trends that Google suggests to you based on the project you’re working on.

Version Control

Since Google Docs automatically save in real time, you may find yourself in a situation where a collaborator has made some unruly edits, leaving you to try to figure out how to revert the document to its original form. Version Control is Google Workspace’s solution to this problem, saving you the headache of having to fix a messy document.

Grammar Suggestions in Google Docs

More than just spell-check, grammar suggestions in Google Docs will help ensure all your work is grammatically correct before you share with colleagues.
