Tips and Tricks

  • Find out what your friends are thinking: Create a free online survey in minutes. Write down your questions, create a form and email it to your friends. See their responses in your very own online spreadsheet.
  • Get along with your new roomie: Adjusting to dorm or apartment life with a new roommate? Create a spreadsheet in Google Docs to keep track of shared expenses or trash duties.
  • Work in groups (without meeting in person): Create a presentation and add collaborators who can edit the same document. You can always go back to a previous version, and coordinating work is easy since you can see exactly who's adding what, right as they work.
  • Get class notes from a friend: Create a Google Doc for your class notes and collaborate with your classmates.
  • Upload any file: Docs also allows you to upload any file type unto their server space to share and store files such as PowerPoint presentations,
    papers and worksheets.
