Calendaring, Time Management & Business Productivity
With Google Calendar, multiple employees can post events on a single calendar that the entire company can access and edit accordingly. Additionally, these calendars can be colour-coded so that the viewer is made aware of changes to appointments. Administrators can also set permissions to calendars, so that only certain employees can see or edit items. Another useful feature of Google Calendar is the ability to create events through Gmail. When you add an employee’s e-mail address to an event on the calendar, the employee is sent an invitation to confirm his or her attendance. After confirming, each employee can view and add notes to the event.
Google Docs is an application that allows multiple users to create and edit documents, presentations and spreadsheets – all on the Web. Usually, co-workers share documents by emailing attachments to one another, which often results in incorrect file versions and scattered, misplaced copies. With Google Docs, the file is edited in the cloud, where revisions are saved, shared and recovered automatically.
Security Management and Permission in Google Apps
Like most of the other Google Apps, administrators can set permissions in Google Docs so that only certain workers are allowed to view and share files. Another convenient feature is the ability to export the documents into different types of file extensions, which can be helpful in those times when a client or customer needs a PDF file ASAP.
