– I think a lot of the things that we do just inherently because we’ve been using it for so long some people might not be aware of. So if things like comments, and then signing things to people in those comments will be very helpful to show. What are we gonna talk about? We’re gonna talk about G Suite Enterprise collaboration and productivity apps, and, I guess, specifically how we can work faster, smarter, and together.

– So, Mark, what do you mean faster, smarter, and together? Do you have an example of that?

– Yeah, I guess, so faster. Just, how can we let our technology do more of our work for us, so we don’t have to work as much, right? I don’t wanna work.

– That’s my number one goal. Especially when the sun’s out.

– Yeah, it’s true. So things like Smart Replies, Smart Compose.

– Oh yeah, okay, all right.

– So, how can we move faster?

– I get that. Okay, and then smarter. When I think smarter, I think of you. Sheets.

– Oh.

– Sheets Erlandson.

– Thank you. Oh, sheets. Spreadsheets, yes. Google Sheets. I love sheets. I’ve said sheets so many times. How many more times can I say sheets? Yeah, so with the sheets. I am a big fan of all the formula’s you can do, and automate things, and you’ve actually showed me some tips to… You could say work smarter, you could say–

– Well, listen.

– Don’t be as smart, let the machines be smarter.

– I would argue the formula’s are hard. And, again, I don’t wanna be working hard, I just wanna get it done. So, I do wanna work fast, and I don’t wanna work hard. So I like Sheets Explore.

– Does working smarter mean working harder? No.

– No, not usually. Maybe in your case it does.

– Not working harder. So, work smarter like Sheets Explorer.

– What do you mean when you say, “Make it together”? I think everything in G Suite kind of is making it together in some ways, right?

– Yeah. It’s very collaborative, so I mean, we focus on a drive a lot. We use drive every single day, so. I think a lot of the things that we do just inherently, because we’ve been using it for so long, some people might not be aware of. So if things like comments, and signing things to people in those comments would be very helpful to show.
