Overall Satisfaction with Google Workspace Essentials (formerly G Suite Essentials)

Google Workspace Essentials is how our company ensures the productivity and visibility of our remote team. Google Workspace Essentials also allows bringing the team together by allowing us to work on and share documents, sheets, and/or presentations in real-time. One of the big issues Google Workspace Essentials has solved for our operations, and the HR department is being able to keep track of where each document goes. Being able to see who manipulated the document and how and when has been a big plus when it comes to making decisions based on what our team has worked on.
  • Sharing documents
  • Visibility on last changes
  • Document tracking
  • Google Sheets makes us want to say Excel who?
  • Make it easier to configure to desktop
  • Alerts when shared documents are being deleted
  • Sheets
  • Documents
  • Email
  • Connectivity to other apps
  • Saved a ton of money by not having to buy MS Office Licenses
  • Easy to deactivate accounts
  • Control over company owned documents and information
Google Workspace Essentials is easier to use in general, has faster access to attached files, and is easier to organize.

Did implementation of Google Workspace Essentials go as expected?


Would you buy Google Workspace Essentials again?


If your company team works remotely and you want to simplify team meetings, Google Workspace Essentials will do just that.

Google Workspace Essentials is not suited or rather not necessary for really small in-office teams. However, in general, it solves all issues that Microsoft Office can solve, and I would highly recommend it as it is easy to learn.
