Google Docs

Are you aware of the free tools offered by Google for nonprofits? You may be familiar with Google Apps, but not realize their Premier/Education Edition is available free for qualifying nonprofit organizations.

In this post, I want to specifically look at the features available with Google Docs. How often have you worked on a document with other people and have not been sure which was the latest version? Or perhaps you missed some important changes because you were comparing several different versions and did not catch all the edits?

Google Docs puts an end to that problem by making it easy for you to collaborate with others online. As you work on a document with others, Google shows who made the suggested changes and saves your revision history so you can revert back to a previous version. I think the best feature is that multiple people can work on the document at the same time. So, check it out. It’s free so there’s nothing to lose!
