Spreadsheets, word documents, presentations: They’re all a fact of life at the office. What has changed, however, is the work process and flow associated with those common work requirements. Used to be that people stored a copy of a document on their desktop, then perhaps shared it via a printout or, even more recently, via an email. Then many workplaces moved to a server-based setup, where various people could access a document, albeit one at a time. But what’s revolutionized the workflow of many modern businesses (and a whole lot of people at home, too)? Well that would be the cloud.
The cloud has led to a lot of cloud-based processing opportunities, such as Google Drive. Google Drive is a way for you to create those spreadsheets and presentations and word documents, but do it so that many people can access and work on them, sometimes all at once. However, there are some key hacks that everyone should know.
