I am looking for one or two persuasive paragraphs with a simple pleasing figure that explains the paradigm of real time collaborative editing (eg Google Docs, Google Sheets, Office 365) versus attaching Microsoft Word documents to an email that one sends to one or more collaborators.

I need it to be written for a computer-disinterested crowd. My context is both within the enterprise and among collaborators spread out across many universities.

I feel as if many people learned how to attach documents to email and how to open attachments contained in emails that they received and they will be darned if they are going to learn anything new. Ossification!

I saw an online document but this is too detailed and does not have the requisite slick graphic. What I am looking for must exist, I just cannot find it.

I have a Google Sheets file created that is keeping track of all of my movies, I'm wondering is there a way to 'stack' movies of the same series in one line.
For example if I want to put all James Bonds movies on 'one line' ... like a drop down menu?

Here is a link to the Google Sheets file. I have added comments within the file.

Como puedo abrir un documento para incluir un bunner?

This may be insanely obvious, but what is the best way to get information (exam specification details) from a table within a PDF file, into a google sheet, so that I can filter, link, search, etc.

copy and paste doesn't work; it puts the entire table row as plaintext in one cell. I feel there should be a way!
