Google Drive

Google Drive it is a great tool for sharing any kind of file between workgroup or family, the apps solve many problems like the interchange of big files, and without any limitation of file types, you can share text, music file, video files in any formats and so many others, you can also share file create in Google apps like docs, where everyone can interact with you and make change of the files to keep in constant touch with your partners. One of the biggest limitations of Drive is the storage because it is vinculated to your Gmail account and that means that if you have a full email you have a limited space for storing your file, if you want more space, you have to pay for it.

Pros

  • Great user experience and minimal learning curve. It wasn't until I became aware of Airtable that we found a solution that allows us to implement the best features of a collaborative RDBMS with our staff who don't have any training. I had previously used Zoho Creator and found that it was difficult to onboard new users because of a steeper learning curve.
  • Easy to share views and invite contributions via forms.
  • Blocks add significant functionality that would be hard to custom build.

  • Notify who and when makes updates
  • It helps to work in groups since we all are working under the same updated document
  • Google Drive has all the tools you used to find in classic Microsoft

Cons

  • It would be great to have multi-tiered selection options. So if I check a box-like, "Does this need social support?" I could then pick from a multi-select drop-down based on the choice.
  • It would be good if we could have a kanban view built off a selection from a multi-select since some projects might be part of multiple strategic initiatives.
  • It would be cool if forms could have some basic if/then functionality. As it is, we need to create different forms for different media requests that share 75% of the same data.

  • Make different types of edit privileges on shared files, especially when publishing necessary and important information.
  • This tool does not work with PDF files because PDFs shared in Google Drive are not editable.
  • Photos cannot be edited; however, they can be downloaded and edited from there

It's the cheapest, most effective platform we've found to store files in the cloud.

Just so easy to learn/use. Very intuitive in its application logic.

While I might feel like the phone is too small to use to create content, they have done a great job in creating a UI / UX that doesn't prohibit you from creating that content on your phone. On a full blown desktop they have done a great job in creating a suite of office tools that can compete with Microsofts' Office suite. While saying that I do think it's fair to point out that Excel will still knock the socks off of a Google Sheet, due to the fact that it's running in a browser.

Sometimes, I have to wait a bit longer but I'm on a low priced option so I understand why. Generally, they're able to provide me solutions to my problems as long as I'm not in a rush.

Alternatives Considered

Airtable is much more user-friendly and easy to navigate and update than Confluence. We still use Confluence as a wiki, but Airtable is used for all our day to day management.

Dropbox is a great alternative to Google Drive for collaboration and tracking real-time document changes. However, Dropbox only provides 2 GB of free storage space before it starts charging a fee while Google Drive offers 15 GB of free space. Overall Google Drive has all of the storage and collaboration tools I need while allowing me to save on the price.

Return on Investment

  • Saved time providing updates on where tasks are up to. Anyone in the team can go in and look to see where things are up to.
  • Allowed the team to have access to the same information at the same time, saving time in people asking each other for data and information.
  • Before Airtable we had information stored in several places - Excel, Confluence, emails, on individuals' computers - now we've put it all in one place.

  • The ability of this online work tool is tremendously profitable. It offers greater sustainability in the information sharing strategies, which translates into savings.
  • It is necessary to consider some aspects such as the usability level in non-potential users, it is of high quality and it adapts very well to the demands of those who maintain it.
  • Our organization has benefited with Google Drive because it does not invest in other tools that could be good but are also costly.
