I love Google Drive and Docs. I have abandoned OneNote and Evernote and now use only Google Drive/Docs/Sheets for my notes and file organization. No regrets there.

I will say, however, the document scanner on Drive is fairly crappy, so I have continued to use Office Lens until Google gets around to improving theirs. The quality is much better than with Google's and since Office Lens can save to the Android Gallery, the images wind up in Drive anyway (I have enabled that in Drive).

Yes. Office Lens is the only Microsoft app I still use regularly for the same reason. Image quality far surpasses Google Drive scan option at this time. Office Lens will scan multiple pages in the Apple App, but not Android. I keep waiting for Google to give the Scan function some love.

If a document/file is shared publicly. Does google search prefers google doc to appear on first page? When someone searches its query with shared file title, does it increase chances for our file to appear on top?

+Sushubh they do appear if the link is shared on a website, as it is a multitude of times with your example.

#GoogleDocs  stil doesn't provide section breaks. Page breaks are of little use. What if someone needs to restart footnote numbering in each section/chapter? Please don't tell me I should keep starting a new doc for each chapter. That's crazy.

Having finished my most recent add-on for Google Docs (Text Cleaner), I am thinking about doing something new based around the needs of educators. Does anyone in this community have a problem in Google Docs that they wished they could solve with an add-on?

A couple of points:

1. Some ideas that seem simple are actually very complex given the limitations of Google scripting (and vice versa). For example, adding proper columns has been requested of me before, but is very difficult to implement.

2. Please make suggestions for problems you think other people might also encounter.

This is really just a hobby for me, so any add-on would be free and open source.

Thanks!


Powerful and customisable formatting clearance.

Can you make an add-on to show non-printing characters?

Google Docs, Sheets, Slides and Forms all have a range of great-looking templates that can help make teacher’s administrative work a bit quicker and easier, here are five Google Drive templates for teachers.

When using google forms to take a quiz, is there a way that you can lock that form on an iPad so the student cannot go and look the answers up on the internet?

Perhaps have the student create something authentic instead of creating a form quiz? Perhaps posing an open-ended question where it requires thought instead of searching? What if the question were a short response and the student had to use the Internet to validate his/her response by citing a source?

I am a huge fan of Microsoft OneNote. It is particularly great for making lesson plans. The organization of notebooks, sections, and pages really lends itself to daily, weekly, and unit plans. I used it extensively during my student teaching.

Does Google or a Google Apps third party offer anything similar that is great for making lesson plans? Evernote doesn't look like it lets you sign in with a Google account. Google Keep just seems like a bunch of sticky notes. I have seen some teachers use Google Sheets, but I think that is kind of overwhelming for some people since they just want a document and not a grid. Let me know your ideas!

Jon...for years (1985 when I got my first Mac) I've used Excel to write lessons. Create a layout you like and use it as a template. Nothing is more flexible than that. The simplicity and ease of use will simply depend on your inequity and needs. Now I use Google Sheets so I can share with colleagues.

Pretty sweet Kanban app. Works seamlessly with Google Drive. I am trying it out and liking it. The free version is pretty powerful. 
Kanbanchi is a free kanban software for task management, project management, and collaboration. Online kanban board helps manage projects the agile way.

Hello everybody, is there a way to link a video file that is saved on my hard disk to a Google slide? I am not talking about YouTube videos, just an mp4 file.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I thought if you turned on offline access you would still be able to access the file? Can you save the file to your desktop? Then you could add the link to Google Slides.

I was about to launch a fun contest today via Google forms using validation to self score the test (short answer, text > must contain = answer). Works great until you look at the source code and see all the answers. What a piss poor way to implement quizzes in Google Forms.
