Overall Satisfaction with G Suite

We use the full G Suite system in our company and rely on it every day. We use Gcal to schedule our meetings, Gmail to send email, Docs to do our work and we used to use Google Hangouts but switched to Zoom (I think I liked Hangouts better though).

Pros

  • The Gmail tool is easy to use and effective.
  • GCal is AMAZING especially with the new UI update it's a lot prettier now!
  • I love Google Docs/Presentations/Sheets - it's so much easier to use and I can collaborate easily and see my info everywhere.

Cons

  • The Gmail search functionality is pretty much trash and makes it pretty hard to find something. I feel like this is something people have said about Gmail since like 2005 but they have yet to make it any better (as far as I can see). Google invented search, it doesn't make sense for it to be bad but there's probably something tricky about email search that makes it hard - I'm sure they are smart enough to fix it but we make fun of it at work all the time.
  • Need a little bit more functionality of the Microsoft Office Suite in your products. I know your products are simpler and free but there are certain things such as custom animations that should really be available in presentations.
  • Lets us to do work faster
  • Lets us work better
  • Integrates with our other tools, such as Zoom
Much better in most regards - more user-friendly, but their presentations have a lot less functionality than Microsoft's PowerPoint.
Super easy to use and easy to collaborate on
