G Suite Gets Better Collaboration and Editing Features With the Latest Update

Google Docs headaches? This update might just have fixed them

The new title also brings with it the ability to assign custom names to versions of a doc, sheet, or slide.

With the new features, you'll also be able to preview "clean" versions of a Doc for easier reading and review, and accept or reject all edits with one command to save time approving every little thing. Among the features, the apps are getting new collaboration and organization tools, customizable templates with built-in add-ons, and enhanced search capabilities via Google Cloud Search integration.

Microsoft is pushing very hard to make Office 365 and their other cloud services the default decision for businesses and, while there is a strong core of users devoted to Google's products, I'm seeing more and more large user groups, such as univerisities and schools either deploy Office 365 as their first foray into the world of subscription apps or shifting away from Google. Previously, you had to specifically go to Cloud Search to look for documents, but you can now kick off searches directly from inside Docs and Slides.

Back in the dark ages, people used to share documents by email and to make sure that everybody was on the same page, they'd change the file's name for different versions of their Word or Excel documents. One of the templates from LegalZoom and DocuSign, for example, offers an outline for a mutual non-disclosure agreement (NDA). There's also an option to select "Only show named versions".

Google is introducing a slew of new features in an overhaul to its web-based Docs, Sheets, and Slides tools, which could make working on and editing a group project online even easier. "Teams use templates in Docs and Sheets to save time on formatting".

For the smartphone users, the latest G Suite update brings the functionality to suggest changes on iOS and Android both. Select Tools Review suggested edits Accept all OR Reject all.

Next up we come to templates, which are getting new functionality today. In addition, you can also now more easily compare documents in Docs with the help of the new Litera Change-Pro and Workshare add-ons for Docs.
