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.

New outline tool makes navigating Docs quick and easy

Getting lost in lengthy, complex documents? Google launched an outline tool in Google Docs on the web and Android app. Displayed in a pane to the left of the page, this outline features headers for each section of your document, making it simple to quickly jump from section to section. If you haven’t manually applied headers, Google intelligently detects the logical divisions within your work. You can then edit or remove these headers as necessary.

This launch also allows you to move through documents on your Android phone or tablet at super speeds. When you begin scrolling, a small navigation handle will automatically appear. Touching that handle displays the entire document’s structure, allowing you quickly skip from section to section, instead of swiping up and down.

To surface an outline in your document, simply click Tools > Document outline in Docs on your computer or select Document outline from the overflow menu on your Android device. Check out the Help Center article for more details. https://support.google.com/docs/answer/6367684

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.

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.

Permission to See "Free/Busy" on Resource Calendars Includes Ability to Add New Events

Google recently modified how calendar permissions work for resources (e.g., rooms). Now, anyone who has permission to see if a room is free or busy can also schedule events in that room. We recommend reviewing the calendar permissions for the resources you own. Make sure to only give free/busy access to individuals or groups who should be able to reserve the room. This is done by unchecking the Share this calendar with others box and adding individuals or groups under Share with specific people.

For more information on calendar sharing and permissions see Google Help or contact the ITS Service Center.

Easily Convert Text to Columns in Google Sheets

Copying data and pasting it into a spreadsheet can be a pain if the data does not separate neatly into columns. Today Google is launching a feature in Google Sheets that allows you to split delimited data (e.g. data separated by commas) from one column across multiple columns.

There are a couple ways to do this: 

- Select the columns you want to split, and click Data > Split text to columns. A menu will then appear underneath the data, allowing you to split the data using commas, semicolons, periods, spaces, and even custom separators.

- Format cells containing delimited data using a contextual menu that appears immediately after you’ve pasted data. You can also choose a custom separator with this method.
