How To Collaborate Using Google Cloud Connect On Microsoft Office
Need a better way to collaborate? We reviewed Google Cloud Connect to see how it worked in semi real-time.
Collaborating can be tricky. You either have to email documents around or send it to a shared server. Unfortunately, both of these solutions force everyone, except the person working on the document, to wait for their turn. Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office tries to solve the need for two or more people to collaborate on a single Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint document in near real-time.
Here's how to collaborate with Google Cloud Connect:
The first step is to download and install the free software from Google. Note, that this software is only available for Microsoft Windows. Use your Gmail account and password to login to the service. Click on the Google Cloud Connect "Login" button to start the configuration process.
Next, accept access authorization to Google Docs and Google Contacts. Note that Google itself has not completed rebranding everything to Google Drive.
The final configuration step presents the default sync setting. That's the automatic option. The other option is to specify which folder to use as a "Save location" instead of Documents ("My Documents").
