Love this user story. Thanks for sharing +Rob Michael!
Just a quick shout out to the +Google Drive team. You guys are card-carrying badasses.

I use Drive in my teaching workflow inside +Google+ hangouts (more info on that here:

I also use GDrive in my face-to-face lessons via my iPad. Keeping the current version of a document delivered to all of my students? This is awesome!

I used to actually carry a file folder of papers from which I would distribute curriculum. That already seems like a hundred years ago.

My Star Trek fantasies are all coming true. Can I go ahead and pre-order my holodeck now?

1. Create your own Docs collaboration story.
2. Share it on G+.
3. Tag it with #gonegoogle .
We love hearing about all the different ways people use collaboration in Docs - from creating shared grocery lists to co-authoring full length novels. In the past, we created a few stories of our own and now, we want you to do the same.

With the new Gone Google Story Builder, you can make your own personalized videos featuring the characters, story, and even music of your choosing and then share it with everyone you know (or maybe just a few of your closest friends).

Give it a try and if you make something great, post it to Google+ with the tag #gonegoogle or just leave it in the comments. We’ll feature a few of our favorites right here next week.

Collaborating in a doc makes brainstorming a no-brainer. ;)
Liz Lemon and the +30 Rock crew know that sometimes the key to a successful brainstorm is just changing the topic. With everyone adding ideas to the same Google document, how hard could be it be to think up some new TGS sketches?

The brainstorm has #gonegoogle

It's my two-year Googleversary! :D (Time flies when you're on the internet.)

A little tip to help you #DriveBetter  :)
Did you miss this in yesterday's blog post?

In addition to being able to protect your cells, now you can change the color and pattern of your cell borders.

Go give it a try: Open a Google spreadsheet, highlight the cells you'd like to add a border to, and click on the borders icon to select a color and pattern.

Let us know what you think in the comments!

Don't leave it to us to decide what stock images we should include in our gallery - Pick your favorites on and submit to the form at the bottom of this post!
Want to help us curate a new batch of stock images?

When you’re creating a document or a presentation to share with others, the right picture can be worth a thousand words. That’s why earlier this year we added a gallery of stock images to Google Drive to help you find that right picture more easily--and for free. (In Google presentations, documents or spreadsheets, go to Insert > Image, click Search, and select Stock images).

You shared a lot of positive feedback about this feature, so we decided to expand our library to give you even more photos to choose from. To make this gallery more useful, we’d like your input on what we should add. 

If you’re interested in helping us out, go to and search for images, or browse through them by category. Using the Google form linked below, submit the item numbers (linked underneath each image) for up to 10 images you’d like to nominate for use in your documents, presentations, spreadsheets. We’ll use your ideas to create and curate the next generation of our stock image library. 

Looking forward to your submissions!

Protect your cells!
When you're collaborating with lots of people in a spreadsheet, sometimes someone else can inadvertently modify a cell that wasn't meant to be touched.

Starting today, you'll be able to lock down cells with new Protected Ranges in Google spreadsheets.

To get started with Protected Ranges in a shared spreadsheet, highlight the cells you’d like to protect, right-click, and choose Name and protect range from the menu.

Check out today's blog post to see the feature in action:
