Another thing that makes Google’s document tool so great is the ability to collaborate with others. You can share documents with them, and they can do the same with you. You can hammer our ideas together in real time, which is great for remote workers.
There are great search features in Google Drive that let you find anything, whether you created the document or it was shared with you.
If you’ve ever found yourself looking for a document with a name you can’t remember, but you are able to remember who shared it with you, you can click on the Shared With Me section in the menu on the left side of the screen. From there you can scroll through the docs created by others.
If that list is too big, you can use Google Drives search function to type in the name of a collaborator instead of a file name, so if all you know is with whom you’re working, you’ll be able to find the document and get back to work!
