Google Improves Collab Tools in Sheets, Slides, and Docs

Apart from these users can now create custom templates with add-ons to maximise efficiency and reduce time

Google is updating Docs, Sheets, and Slides today with a bunch of really handy new editing features - some of which are overdue, and others that are smart new improvements. You can check out how that could be valuable in the GIF below, which shows off the new capability to only display the newly-namable versions of a Doc.

Late past year Google introduced custom templates in Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms for faster formatting.

The new tools feature heavily on version control and tracking changes in Docs, Slides and Sheets.

Google has also added new templates which come with built-in add-ons for both Docs and Sheets.

Charlottesville terror attack: Murder charge after man rams vehicle into crowd
A 32-year-old woman was killed as she was crossing the street and a vehicle was driven into a crowd of counter-demonstrators. Investigators say Fields drove his vehicle into the crowd as thousands of White Nationalists took to the streets.

With these latest updates, users can now accept or reject all editing suggestions at once when working in Docs.

Speaking of versions, users will also now be able to preview "clean versions" of documents. The first feature is the ability to preview documents with or without suggested edits; to access these options select Tools Review suggested edits Preview accept all, or Preview reject all. "These templates allow you to customize and deploy tools specific to your organization's workflows", the post said. Another change that comes with this "Version History" is that the users would be able to assign custom names to different versions of a file as per their liking.

Users will also be able accept or reject all suggestions at once (Tools Review suggested edits Accept all or Reject all). The suggest changes toggle should be enabled, and mobile suggestions should be made while using the suggestion mode. As an example, Google worked with LegalZoom and DocuSign to create the Mutual Non-disclosure agreement template. The suite is getting five new version control features, templates with built-in add-ons, and improved search for business customers.

Suggest changes from an Android or iOS device. "Using Machine Intelligence, Cloud Search surfaces relevant information to help you work more efficiently throughout your day", Google said. The newly added cloud integration allows the G Suite subscribers to search from all their documents present on the Google servers at one point. For the most part the collaborative features are pretty great, but if you rely on Google Docs pretty heavily, the recent update might be of interest to you.
