Can someone please explain why a web-based upload to Google Drive shows its exact progress but the native Windows program fails to do so? "Uploading...", no, seriously?

I used it on a Windows Server once where Google Drive was just refusing to work. And it worked great. Also it is a good option if you are on Linux as Google has no official Drive client for Linux.

Let's say I share the same google slides presentation with about 36 students and each student is going to work on a specific slide number.  How many students do you think could be simultaneously working in the same document, editing at the same time, adding images, text and so on, before it would break the presentation?  Is there a cap or issues with lag/performance that has been experienced by anyone that has tried this?  
I am sure this is a bad idea in itself with just students editing/deleting each others' slides... by accident of course, but I am curious if anyone has got this to work with some high numbers of simultaneous users. 

I saw a help topic that said 50 was the cap at a time with about 200 emails totals given access.. but I want to hear from those who have experienced a lot of simultaneous users doing strenuous amounts of editing.

I have done this many times with 30 or so users with no problems whatsoever. The performance will most likely be determined by the bandwidth available to users, not any restrictions imposed by Google. And no, this is not a bad idea at all, it's an excellent teaching strategy and a great way to introduce students to the concepts of online collaboration and crowdsourcing. If you're worried about students deleting each others work, have a session that allows them to do just that so they know how to avoid it in future.

What exactly does this vague Google Drive/Docs error mean?

I have a tricky business requirement that I'm hoping to reach out to the Docs and Drive community for some ideas.

Our Legal department produce hundreds of letters (yes, print, post and stamps) sent to solicitors. The front page is printed on pre-printed letterhead paper, the following pages on plain A4 paper. I'm delighted that the team are adopting docs and drive for their documentation but a barrier to full adoption is the lack of ability to send a print job to different trays on the printer. In Word (2007) they were able to set this as a Word template but in Google Docs it appears not.
It's become a sticky problem and we've run out of ideas locally so thought I would see what the community might be able to do.
All and any ideas welcomed
Thank
Alan

Thanks Scott. This is a great idea and could have legs. We do use a print server to share out our multi function copier/printers.

Good evening folks. Is there an app or extension that will break a video into chunks to make uploading to GDrive more expedient?

Well, the question was make uploading to GDrive more expedient, so I hoped to answer the user's question, not expound upon the various merits of my superior point of view. :p

Is there a way to put page numbers automatically in a table of contents in docs? Seems an odd omission unless I am missing something.

Just found out that web hosting from Google Drive is being discontinued.
Question: How will this affect things like embedding published Google Drawings in Sheets? What other functionality will we lose?

I have a stumper and I'm calling upon the community collective!

I have a teacher who would like to gather pre- and post-assessment data (using a form--if that's best) then have the resulting data graphed by student that compares data from each of 7 traits. The first chart is easy peasy, but is there an automatic way to have the spreadsheet generate similar charts per student? Perhaps a script, formula, or add-on?

Hey G+ Community! Having some issues with google forms...the past week or so, when I've tried filling out a google form with a text area, I have this issue (See pic) where the text box is greyed out and I cannot type, copy text, etc. I've had this issue on OSX, Chrome for iOS, and Win XP. I've used chrome (signed in to google) and firefox (no google account) on the mac, and firefox (not signed in) on Win XP.

In my opinion, another reason to avoid the new forms and stick with the classic.  Google really messed up on this "improvement."

Hi community! I told you once that I am developing a dashboard in a google spreadsheet (with Google Drive, not Apps). The idea is simple, some scripts have queries that look for data in a DB and paste it in tables according to de criterias selected in certain cells by the user (like for example year, country, etc)

My issue is the following. I want that end-users to have permission to only edit those criteria cells and run the script that collate the data from the DB.

I see 3 different paths with the following consequences
(1) If I grant end-users view permissions (which I would prefer):
- It looks just like I want, everything is safe
- BUT I can't let them select or edit the criterias neither run any script (or is it possible?)

(2) If I give end-uses write access (using protected ranges) I have the following issues:
- editors can see (even edit) the script which has the user and password of the DB connection, the script can't be shared
- editors can make a copy of the file, which I don't want to allow (to avoid copying the script in a new file without supervision)

(3) publish the script as an Add-on
I am still trying to test how it really works. But it is by now, what I understand the best despite is not perfect.
- I can hide the code, the add-ons can be private (only accesible by a link), they can be run locally IN the sheet (not run by the user) and if somebody makes a copy of the spreadsheeet, the add-on is not transfered.
- BUT that private becomes the gold key to get access to the DB. I don't feel this is safe enough. What if he or she is fired? The link would remain the same always.

any idea? suggestion? clue? what would you do?
Many thanks,
Gerónimo
