Google Docs 4 Everyone
The only book users need to make the most of Google Docs, Google's free online office productivity suite. ?nbsp;Beginner-to-intermediate-level guidance for using Google Docs' increasingly popular word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation tools. ?nbsp;Includes extensive, practical coverage of sharing and collaborating on documents with Google Docs. ?nbsp;By best-selling authors with a proven track record of keeping technology as simple as possible: perfect for the Google Docs end-user audience. Google Docs gives millions of people all the office productivity software they need. And, unlike the office suites it replaces, it's free, and completely online: no worries about paying for software, installing it, managing it, or even storing files. Google Docs applications are simple, flexible, and increasingly powerful, too. Only one thing's missing: good documentation. That's where Google Docs 4 Everyone comes in. This book covers all three of Google Docs' flagship applications, guiding readers through all the common tasks they're likely to perform, and offering new tips and tricks to maximize their productivity. The authors start from scratch, showing how to sign up for a free Google Docs account; then walk through each application, step by step. Readers will get to know the Google Docs workspace; learn how to edit and format documents of all kinds; and master advanced application features such as revisioning and templates. They'll learn how to upload large batches of documents from their PCs, and take their work back offline using the innovative new Google Gears. There's extensive coverage of collaboration, too, including techniques that empower readers to work together in ways that were impractical with conventional desktop tools. From start to finish, this book is written to serve a non-technical audience that wants to get the job done simply and easily: an audience that is attracted to Google Docs' simplicity, and wants a book that takes the same approach.
