Google Documents and Sheets are becoming more popular each day. It is a great way to store your information, and it also has cloud storage backup.
Unfortunately, Microsoft Office sometimes can get into all sorts of trouble when transferring to the Google app format. The compatibility requires some touching up, but improvements are made. Luckily, there is an update that will help you notice any inconveniences.
The recent update will feature pop-up messages telling you that your documents might be incompatible with Google Docs. It will have a little blue box and indicator .DOC or .DOCX. If you see a triangle near the name of the file, it might mean that there are some problems with transferring the documents.
This update also involves Google Sheet and Slides, so you won’t have to worry about your tables and presentations. It might take time before it reaches all users, like 15 days or so. The Restore button will help you keep track of everything you’ve changed in the document. You can choose to revert any actions after a certain time.
Moreover, the update is available for all users: business customers, G Suite Basic, and personal accounts. Workspace has been expanding its reach lately. The latest optimization allowed users to freely move around the space and edit out any piece of information. Images and text can be moved around from Chrome and Sheets directly to your open document.
Google Workspace is a good option if you are trying to keep all of your files synchronized. It lets you edit several documents at once and keeps track of all of your additions. There are additional styles and grammar tips that you might find helpful.
