Check Out the New Look for the U-M Weblogin Page

Hello,

The weblogin page we all use to log in to many U-M websites, including Box and Google, has a new look. This updated page is designed to work consistently across all electronic devices. The new look accompanied the implementation of two-factor authentication.

Embed and update charts from Sheets in Docs and Slides

Many times, a chart is used across multiple documents and presentations. If there is a change to that chart, it can be very time-consuming to replace it in every file that uses it. To save time, you can now update your chart with a click—no need to leave your document or presentation. To enable this feature, go to Insert > Chart in Google Docs or Slides on the web. Insert a new chart or select From Sheets to add an existing chart from your spreadsheet. Check the Link to spreadsheet box and you’ll be given the option to update the chart with one click—as long as the underlying data in Google Sheets changes. If you no longer want to be notified of updates to a chart, you can unlink it. This is also available if you copy and paste a chart into a document or presentation.

Please note: The ability to import or update linked charts will only be available to collaborators with edit access to the document, presentation, or underlying spreadsheet.

Google Calendar Reminders are coming to the web

Last year, Google launched Reminders in the Google Calendar app for iOS and Android systems. Now, Reminders for Google Calendar on the web are here. With Reminders, you can set a reminder for a specific time and date. To create a reminder, tap or click on a time in the calendar grid, then select “Reminder.”

Reminders carry forward until you mark them as “done” by clicking on the reminder and selecting “Mark as done.”

Please note:
Reminders created in the Google app and Keep will show in Google Calendar.
Reminders will sync to your Google Calendar Android and iOS apps.
Reminders are private and are not viewable, even if your calendar is shared with others.
Google Tasks users won’t be prompted to use Reminders. You can enable the feature from the drop-down menu on the Tasks calendar.

Set Goals! Google Calendar mobile app

A good mobile calendar should help you make the most of your time. That’s why Google introduced a new feature called Goals in Google Calendar for Android and iPhone. Create a goal, such as “working out”, and the Google Calendar mobile app will help you find the time to meet it. If Goals doesn’t sound like something you want to use, you can simply click “No Thanks” when the new feature prompt appears.

See event locations at a glance with Calendar on the web

Tired of having to open up a calendar event to see where it is taking place? Event locations will now appear in the day and week views in Google Calendar on the web. This will eliminate the need to navigate to the event details to see the location. Please note that the details will only appear when there is enough space available to show it. The image below shows several events with locations visible.

You can now accept questions from the audience when presenting in Google Slides!

Skilled presenters know an interactive presentation can be an effective one. Google Slides has added a new feature allowing your audience to submit questions and vote on them, all while you are presenting! Want to see the feature in action? Check out this video of Google Science Fair winner Shree Bose taking questions from a group of 200 middle school students.

Some things to be aware of:

- The Slides Q&A feature works on desktop computers, Android mobile devices, and iOS mobile devices.

- You can only use Slides Q&A if you have edit or comment access to that Slides presentation.

- Any user in your domain can submit a question. External users can submit questions too, if allowed by your organization.

- You can use your mouse as a laser pointer in Slides on the web.
Choose the laser pointer option in the toolbar and move your mouse. A red laser-like dot will appear on screen!

- In the iOS app, you can present in a new Hangout or go to a Hangout selected from a meeting on your Calendar.

More information can be found at the Help Center.

Tip: Did you know? You don’t have to switch to a different application or software to create images for your documents and presentations. You can crop, recolor, and more right in Google Docs and Sheets!

Google Drive is now supporting web notifications in Chrome

Want to respond quicker in Google Drive? Drive now supports web notifications in Chrome when files are shared with you, or access to your files is requested. This will help you keep up with what is happening in your Drive. There are a few things you need to be aware of with this new feature:

You have to opt-in to turn on notifications.
Notifications will only be visible while using Chrome.
You can control which notifications you want to receive on a per-device basis.

Watch for a message in the bottom left of your document list with a link to enable the feature.

You can also turn notifications on/off by going to your Drive settings and selecting Notifications. You’ll be given three options to choose from. Pick the types of notifications you want to receive and click Done.

Want an easier way to read in Google Sheets? Resize the formula bar!

Coming soon: Working with a spreadsheet can be challenging and you shouldn’t have to struggle to view the cell contents. Google Sheets is introducing a feature that will allow you to resize the formula bar so you can read the entire cell, even if you only have view or comment access.

Tip: Did you know? With Google Docs, you can see at a glance what’s changed in a document since the last time you opened it.
