A great way to collaborate and work from home

5.0 last month New

Comments: Google Workplace is a great product for work from home. It allows great collaboration, and is very powerful -- almost as powerful as Microsoft Office (and in some important collaborative ways, more powerful). I would recommend this product for anyone looking to run work remotely.

Pros:

The best part of Google Workspace is the ability to comment in coworkers. This aids so much in collaboration and in leaps and bounds better than solutions from competitors. Also, a strong feature of Google Workspace is the ability to easily import ranges from other spreadsheets simply by referencing the URL. This can allow you to create smart sheets that automatically pull in data based on input.

Cons:

Vlookups from one sheet to another sheet are much more difficult to create. In Excel, you can start a vlookup in one sheet then click to select a range in another sheet and it will automatically fill in the range. In Google Sheets / Google Workspace ranges from another sheet need to be typed using importrange and the URL -- which is more difficult (although admittedly more powerful once you get he hang of it). Also I disliked pivot table creation. Excel's pivot table tools seem more robust.

Lots of great features, but one of the most importants doesn't work fine

5.0 last month New

Comments: We use GMail and Calendar as our primary communication platform for all our accounts, and we're happy with both. We used to use Drive for file sharing, but now we are switching to OneDrive because their files and folders synchronization is more reliable. Also, sometimes we use Documents, Spreadsheets and YouTube and all of the works nice.

Pros:

I've been using Google Workspace for more than 15 year now, since it was free. I love how it integrates all the ecosystem of applications to make the daily office labor a lot more intuitive and straight forward.

Cons:

One of the applications that I use more often is Drive, because all the time my clients send me multimedia files (images, audios and videos), with changes between revisions and approval. Sadly, since a time to now, the real time synchronization of folders in Drive doesn't work at all. No matter the platform or the device, it synchronizes some files, but don't another ones. Sometimes it duplicates some random file, o even doesn't show a file in a given device, but in the others. It's a real mess.

A Tool for Effective Collaboration Platform

4.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Overall, using this service to store documents is helpful. Less so for anything more difficult because you'll have to handle everything on your own and won't be able to rely on the system to help you locate, store, and retrieve documents.

Pros:

The simplicity of collaboration, the features it offers, the untapped potential, the support for actual collaboration services, the freedom of movement and accessibility to services from any location at any time.

Cons:

Due to the large number of product variations, customers may be confused about the pricing and feel that they are not receiving value for their money. Additionally, the ability to upload and save files Less storage space is available for free. By raising the maximum number of files that can be saved during free trials, this quality must be added.

Workspace is the ONLY Workplace you need!

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: 10/10, I have never had a service work so fluently with minimal to non-existent workflow interruptions.

Pros:

This is worth every penny! Being able to access my documents from anywhere on any device at anytime has revolutionized my business. I can be bombarded with questions while on a phone call and be able to access and share documents backing my point up.

Cons:

I wish I could add more users for a lower price. However, given the already affordable price I really have nothing to complain about.
