Google Drive Software


 

Google Drive helps users store company data in one place. Users can access files from desktop and mobile devices and control how team members share these files. The platform provides a central admin panel, data-loss prevention and a vault for the drive to ensure compliance and file sharing between users.

Google Drive stores teams’ work in a shared workspace. Teams own new files added to the drive, so that all members stay updated with the latest files. It includes machine-learning technology to help users predict future needs. Google Drive provides features like a natural-language search and optical character recognition (OCR).

Google Drive integrates with third-party applications including DocuSign for e-signatures, CloudLock for additional security layers and LucidCharts for mockups. Users can open different file types like PDFs and MPEG4s, and they can work on Microsoft Word files straight from the drive. Pricing is per month. Support is provided via online chat, email and the phone.

Very easy to use and share online. Compare to dropbox, you use the online version on any computers easily. And you can have online real time collaborations easily. More free storage than drop box

When you upload a Microsoft document and try to edit it, it will transform to a google doc. It will create a copy of the word.

Strongly recommended for small to medium organizations or institutions. The free version has a limitation, but go for a premium option if you want sufficient storage of files

Pros

File sharing can be done in multiple formats such as word, excel, and image forms respectively. Multiple members can work, edit real-time on a single document and this way everything is organized.

Cons

The downloaded format from Google Drive may seem a bit different which can be irritating at times. If this error is fixed then it is an excellent software to use!

This software have been saving my life for the past year plus.

Honestly, it is one of the main storage platforms in the cloud which I have to take everywhere since it is not only useful with android to make backup copies or keep files everywhere such as the photos of the camera or some document , but you can do multiple functions within the website such as edit the document, share with others, make a comment and manage my files in a simple way.

Pros

I will not leave behind the 15GB that give in a gratiuta way to store data, is an acceptable capacity for someone from day to day, as students, administrator, teacher, someone who runs a business, etc. I am attracted to the fluency with which the browser is also very well integrated with the function of sharing files effectively. How good it is to have my files available at all times :)

Cons

Despite having some good features mentioned above I think you have to improve that waiting time when synchronizing or uploading a file. however Google Drive is a good and solid platform!

Pros

The best part about google drive is it is usually free and fairly easy to use. I used it a lot in school previously but now I use it at work as well. It's great for collaboration on documents. Pretty intuitive to use and there are a lot of options (forms, sheets, docs, etc.) inside the Drive.

Cons

The product is easy to use but it struggles with formatting because of that. The easy collaboration can also cause issues at times. The thing I have the most issues with is sharing documents out of a team drive. We've tried to share a group of documents with an outside group before and it can really be a pain. It doesn't allow you to share whole folders with outside users.

Regardless of its drawbacks, I prefer this to Dropbox as it is so ingrained to the Google Suite

Pros

-For Gmail users, it's hard to beat the data storage that is attached to your email
-Having the ability to integrate Google Drive with so many other software products is a huge plus
-Can easily set permissions about who can/ can't

Cons

-Takes a lot of internal coordination about how to label and file info. For larger companies that use a communal Google Drive, need to be exact where and how things will be stored
-Search function is a bit lacking, as it can take significant time to locate the right file (even if searching by exact keywords). This is mostly true for files that have a lot of the same language thoroughout

Google Drive is a powerful tool for any entrepreneur or anyone who wants to share large files easily. No more wetransfers for other clustered programs that tend to upload, send link to your email and then you don't have control over that link after shared.

Pros

1. The real time sharing of everything in the selected folders
2. The shareable link that can be easily created and controlled by the owner of the folder
3. The integration with gmail and android
4. The ease of use with google docs, sheets and other substitutes for microsoft office
5. The ease of uploading and use of microsoft office programs
6. The convenience of having every gmail account with a drive attached to it.

Cons

1. Switching from different drives can be a pain. Some people have more than one (1) email address and when switching from one drive to another, instead of closing that drive and opening on the same window, it usually open in another tab. There should be an option at the start to select what you want to do as I can see this being useful for some people but because I have several email addresses I manage, I don't want several tabs and have to find the one I want.

Pros

Intuitive layout means you can start using Google Drive with almost no instruction. The apps integrate with Microsoft so you can share files and most importantly edit them live. Easy to learn permissions to control who has edit and view access of each part of each file. Having worked on both Google and Dropbox I am a firm favourite of Google. We have recently added Google Team Drive to make accessing all of our company docs ever better.

Cons

There aren't many cons but there are some small formatting issues if you are regularly working on both Google Docs and Microsoft Word/Excel.

It needs fast internet speed to download or upload data. A slow speed internet can take a lot of time to download or upload, especially when file size is excessively huge.

N/A
Pros

The best thing, first off is it's free, which is always a great thing! The second thing is that it can hold so much memory in the drive. I mean I have at least a thousand photos and tons of videos stored in it and never have any issues finding specific photos or videos (once I figured it all out, that is...)! I love that it shows a thumbnail of each photo/video, so you know what you are actually clicking into, which makes it a cinch to find any file at anytime, even on a tiny smart phone. It's always a plus that you can share photos or files so easily, with just a click of the button and it's paramount that they have the audience setting right in clear sight, as to no need to search and worry that your file just went public! Anyway, Google definitely has saved my days many times over!!

Cons

My only pet peeve about it is that it's not organized correctly. When I first started using it a few years back, I felt like I was going around in circles trying to access different areas of the drive? It took me awhile to wrap my brain around where things were saved to, when I accidentally clicked upload to drive and went searching all over for that one file! That's how the whole Google Drive thing started in the first place, by accident! Anyway, once I figured it all out, and believe me, google's "help" pages, at that time, did NOT help at all, I started using it all of the time. But I had so many duplicate files because of not being able to find them originally, it's not even funny, so that was my main pet peeve. And like all software, gadgets, computers, appliances, etc..., there's always a few glitches here and there, but that's to be expected and necessary some times! ;)

I use it for quick access to documents on the go.

Pros

Free. Works like any other Microsoft product but with limitations. Organizes folders and documents like any PC would. Phone app allows the same functionality as a desktop and you can access it anywhere and they give you 15 G's of free storage.

Cons

The Google Sheets, Docs and Slides have about half the functionality of MS Office but again I digress to Free! When you share a file you are only sharing access unless you download and send.

Pros

I was skeptical about using Google Drive in my personal life because I am not one to use a "cloud" service to save my pictures and videos. Google Drive was automatically installed on my new phone and I would have gotten rid of it had I not taken a look at the interface and tried using it on my PC. The ease of access with this software/app is unrivaled and its seamless integration with your phone and computer cannot be beaten. After a few months of using it in my personal life, I moved on to suggesting it in the work place and we have never looked back. I still use it in my personal and professional life to this day. Google has won yet another war: the file sharing show down.

Cons

There are no cons with this product except for the fact that you do have to pay for additional storage. If you're using this for business and storing simple .Docx, .Xls, or .PDF files then you should have more than enough space for thousands upon thousands of documents simply using the free version of the software.

Google Drive and the apps it includes are perfect for collaboration on group projects and workflow management. It's great because Drive allows all contributors to work and edit the same document at the same time, and you can track all the changes, along with when those changes were made. The autosave feature is fantastic too because it means no more lost work because of human error.

Cons

Being able to work together on a document at the same time does have its disadvantage, as the changes affect everything below it. And the file system isn't as intuitive as I would like, so the UI leaves something to be desired.

In my organization, we use this tool to share files, some times external suppliers share files too, and because I have my own personal google drive, I don't want to mix things.
Google drive is very intuitive and in one single platform you can have all your documents stored separately, even those who has been shared with you.

Pros

The simplicity of the tool with most of the more common features incorporated. It syncs very fast and you can work simultaneously between a PC, an iPad and other devices without glitches.

Drive is always waiting in the cloud. It makes secure storage and collaboration easy, in that you can create custom sharing links, and add, edit, or remove those links at any time, so you have complete control over the content you share with others. I have been using it for some time, and plan to continue doing so.

Pros

I like that I can access Drive from anywhere and that it makes interoperability incredibly easy. I can access work documents or customer information anywhere, simply by uploading a document to my drive before leaving the office. Then if I need to refer to some customer information or technical documentation, I can simply access my drive right from my cell phone. It is compatible with both Android and IOS, meaning that you can bring whichever smart device you like to access your info. Conversely, if you want to store things in a secure location while out of office,

I had used Google Drive during my entire lenght of college life, it is really helpful for group assigments as you can see the progrees of others and changes are safe instantly

Pros

I like that is really helpful for group projects and assignments because everybody can edit and work the document and you can track at what time and what parts of the document the person worked on. Also, it shows you with a different color the variety of people who made changes on the document as well as show you who of the group is online. Another cool feature is that changes are instantly saved and you can access the Drive remotely in any electronic device.

Cons

I don't like that when many people are working the document if one person is working on page 1 and the other person is on page 3, if the person on page 1 makes or types a lot the changes of the person working on page 3 will be moved to page 4, it gets really annoying when everybody is trying to make progress at the same time in the Drive

edia plans and communication strategies for a quarter go with me everywhere and may suffer variations according to the dynamics imposed. Having Drive allows making adjustments online to documents that can be edited before being sent to the final recipient, prior to a meeting or interview. Likewise, having important documents for the interviews, such as photos, videos, reviews of the interviewees, press releases and other support material such as logos and statistics, can be shared with the journalists who will do the interviews in the media, without having to copy the documents in a pen drive or CD for each one, thus saving costs.

Pros

The possibility of having everywhere valuable information and documents, both personal and office, to which I can access from wherever I am via mobile. In addition to being able to share it with contacts anywhere in the world.

Cons

The obligation to download the Drive application on mobile, should be accessed to Drive simply having your gmail or google account active on the phone, and access through the mail, since the space requirement to have the application, exceeds some phones not so powerful and that prevents it from being accessed on any Android device.

Google drive allows you to stock files in Internet and have them always available in your account. Also, you can synchronize one folder in your computer and/or a mobile app to use as a normal folder, share with other people files or specific folders through a link or a syncronized folder with other person to always have available the shared information, whatever it is.
Google Drive gives 15 GB of free stock in the cloud, much more than other competitors in the market such as Dropbox, which only gives 2GB. Also, several users could be working over the same document at the same time.

Cons

- People visiting Drive could see hte pages you used if by mistake they were shared.
- The security of your account depends on the security of your password.
- If the shared document has several users, there is a potential risk to be deleted by one of them

As a platform it is super complete and my experience, I think it can provide good solutions in companies or even in the development of projects as an entrepreneur. The cloud is synonymous with agility and just as companies, some less frequent users, in technological terms, must get on that wave and take advantage of its benefits.

Pros

I must admit, at first all this cloud confused me a little. He talks a lot of time ago, and when I started using drive I felt a little lost and did not understand well what was going on and also why things that I had not intentionally put there, appeared.

However, with the use and some research about its features, I understood that it was not just another tool but a global trend, I was already a user of another platform at that time. That's when I understood that I was facing something different. I am referring to a new era, in which storage has undergone a disruptive change.

So to store any type of documents or share them, is as simple as making a few clicks.

Cons

Something negative, could be linked to the user and not the platform itself. I think that the knowledge of its characteristics and benefits that it can offer in corporate environments can be seen as a barrier. I think that if it is the case, you can use consultants or agencies that help to work on solutions that favor the implementation of tools like these.

Flexibility is important. I need to be able to work from home, the office or away on vacation. Drive allows me to have access to my files wherever I am.

Pros

Easily accessible from all of my devices, no matter where I am -work, home, or a coffee shop.

Cons

Would love to see a better filing and syncing system with PC.
