8 unique and great features that should be enough to increase productivity and save time through G Suite.
Amongst other offerings from Google, G Suite stands out as very powerful productivity and collaboration tool. In this article, we have shed the spotlight on eight value-added features that people may have missed that are sure to save time and frustration.
Few of the features are available in the consumer version of Gmail, but this list is specifically for the G Suite. In fact, few of them are still in beta only.
Let’s explore the below features :
OFFICE EDITING IN DOCS
If you want to edit a Microsoft Office doc from within G Suite, now you can. In addition to this, you can also use the collaborative features of G Suite as it will help you to edit, comment, and collaborate on Microsoft Office files using Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides without having to worry about converting file types.
G SUITE ADD-ONS
What if you could save an hour per day? Simply one way to achieve that is to stop doing something that's taking an hour a day to complete. According to Google's Make It Work-study, almost 69% of workers waste up to an hour each day switching apps. Cut down the time switching between apps and you'll gain some time to get the actual work done.
G Suite has add-ons that allow you to access third-party apps like Evernote,, DocuSign, QuickBooks, Copper, Box and Asana directly from Gmail with G Suite add-ons. They believe that add-ons reduce time spent jumping from app to app, which could have a direct benefit to how much work you get done.
G SUITE CONNECTED SHEETS
The Connected Sheets feature is a new kind of spreadsheet that gets activated when using the Sheets data connector, allowing users to analyze up to 10 billion rows of BigQuery data without the need for SQL scripts. Productivity apps will no longer be limited to what you can run on a computer.
