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

We use Google Workspace Essentials for team communication and document storage/management. We use Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Meet in our business.
  • Google Docs & Google Slides are essential to our company as we are remote. Multiple people can work on the documents at one time.
  • Easy to share and store files in Google Drive.
  • Google Calendar is amazing, it integrates seamlessly with other Google products and it's our company's primary calendar tool.
  • Google Sheets has limited capabilities compared to excel. Such as how you maneuver pivot tables, filtering, etc.
  • On Google Docs, sometimes if they are multiple people working at one time, you can get shifted around on the doc. For example, if someone made a big edit that took up space, it will shift my content down. I wish you could lock the area you're editing so it doesn't move or get affected by other changes on the doc while you're editing.
  • Google Drive
  • Google Docs
  • Google Slides
  • The ability to collaborate on documents in real-time has allowed us to land new business and perform at the highest level.
  • Google Drive has provided us a common place for storing internal documents that are important to our business financials.

Google Workspace Essentials is truly the easiest way to collaborate on business items/content. Our company is fully remote, so we rely on Google Workspace Essentials to collaborate on projects and access documents, etc. For proposals, multiple team members can work on the same document simultaneously. There is also an "editing" feature in addition to the "comment" feature that allows you to suggest edits to any text or item on the doc. We leverage this tool a lot when QAing content.
