Contrary to what we once believed, remote work doesn’t have to result in the loss of productivity. G Suite apps such as Drive, Meet and Docs allow you to work together, even when you’re not in the same room. At Agosto, a Pythian Company we know simple collaboration can make or break our daily work. That’s why we use G Suite to empower our team to work together.

Improve Team Collaboration Using Drive & Docs

Our team does a ton of our daily work inside Google Drive. Why? It’s the easiest tool for streamlining team collaboration from anywhere. In our time using Drive, we’ve found a few tips and tricks that help us get things done even faster.

Assigning Comments

Inside Drive, it’s easy to assign comments and tasks to other team members inside documents, spreadsheets and more. We use this function to help alert team members when something requires their attention. When you assign a comment to someone else, they’ll instantly receive an email so they can review and take the action required.

Live Chat

When working inside a file in Drive, you can also chat with others using the file. This makes collaboration on one document extremely simple. You’ll find the chat function in the top right corner of your Google document. Via chat, you can ask questions, get clarification, share an encouraging emoji and more.

Follow-Up Search

Drive’s filtering features make it simple to find any document or file regardless of its location. Your team can also locate tasks assigned to them by selecting the “Follow-Up” filter in the search box inside Drive. This is helpful when working with a vast number of documents or files that require attention.

These tips are only scratching the surface of G Suite’s capabilities. G Suite includes many additional cloud-based tools such as Gmail, Slides, Forms, Jamboard and more, complete with the security you can trust.
