One Reason Virtual Assistants Love Google Docs
Who doesn’t love Google Docs!?
One reason Virtual Assistants love Google Docs is Convenience! Convenience is one of the primary reasons for running your business with the help of Google. Here’s a question that Virtual Assistants are asked all the time:
Do you know GSuite and can you work with Google Docs?
Yes. I replaced breathing oxygen with Google a long time ago. Ha ha!
Google Docs is a really amazing way to collaborate on written work. It has features for suggesting edits, and a way to comment that doesn’t interfere with the language on the page. Okay, you caught me… there isn’t just ONE reason why Virtual Assistants love Google Docs, there are several.
Google Doc Templates Make Things Easier Too
If you are anything like me, you don’t like recreating documents from scratch. You will look for a template to work from first, to save time. Your pre-built templates, as well as custom templates, can then all be managed within Google Drive. Yep! That’s right, Google gives us a place to manage the templates that we all like to use again and again. I love that Google has done this because it helps keep things well organized – a Virtual Assistant’s dream (organization).
Google Merge Text
A GENIUS little software feature we found, that your business is sure to benefit from is the merge text programming built into Google Docs. We have created things like Proposals, and Reports using Google Doc Template and Google Forms that produce a brand new Google Doc that’s ready to go!
