Overall Satisfaction with Google Drive

Google Drive is being used as the main storage tool and data management for our entire organisation. We've been using GSuite applications as well, so it integrates very organically with Google Drive. We can share between colleagues and stakeholders, be it a Document, Spreadsheet or even video tutorials since it has a built-in video player (like Youtube) so it's very easy and practical.
  • Data storage
  • Data management and organization
  • Sharing (colleagues and stakeholders)
  • Drive filestream doesn't show what's is shared with you, so it's not that clear how to use it.
  • How things are managed inside an organisation could be improved. There's no folder for the entire group (at least in our plan), but something created by someone that is shared with specific people.
  • It's expensive for what it offers in terms of storage
  • It helps our entire work process and we use it to store all important files.
  • Makes it easier for multiple people to work together, and we spend less time thinking about how things should be organized.
  • Expanding storage is not that cheap since we need to pay it per user.
The tool itself is easy to use, but we found some issues regarding how space was used between users and how files were shared. So if you create some file, you'll need to move it to a shared folder or share it manually with other people. In terms of ease of use, it's great. File sharing works, but could be improved though.
We never had issues that we needed to keep in touch with support, but they have a huge knowledge base and extensive documentation, so we have information about everything we needed to know in our disposal. We also refer their services to clients and it has been working very well.
Google Drive takes advantage because it integrates so well between other Google apps, so we can search for files easily. Also, we can connect Google Drive to other applications (developed by our company) which enables us to save form submissions, and other kinds of data, directly into Drive spreadsheets and documents.
It's great for a group of people working together remotely or in cases that you need to share assets with clients or stakeholders. You can create documents, collaborate, and comment, and it even has a history revision so you can see who, what was changed and when it happened. Very useful!
