Good collaboration platform

5.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

Google document generation, editing, and collaboration features work fantastic! Handy calendar and Google Meet collaboration feature! It is easy to schedule and attend a remote meeting with colleagues. As an administrator, I like log management and investigation tools. It is very user-friendly and useful.

Cons:

Configuration and setup for different features are not so friendly. For example, anti-spam configuration is really hard and not obvious. As far as context-based access rules.

Desktop Apps for Power-Users

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: Overall, my experience with Google Workspace has been good. I wish there was better support and desktop apps for power-users.

Pros:

The Google Workspace ecosystem is pretty great from top to bottom. It's deeply integrated so that various Workspace apps are available from within other apps. Additionally, the syncing is sold and file sharing is as granular as I need it to be.

Cons:

I consider myself a power-user and would prefer a desktop app that leverages keyboard shortcuts and native gestures so that I can optimize my time in Google Workspace. Additionally, Google Workspace customer support is difficult to track down.

Google Workspace Allows us to Work with Folks Across the State

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: Has been working for us for years. We are a team of 10 that work with folks across the state in various roles. We've used other platforms and Google Workspace has been the easiest.

Pros:

It allows our team, our collaborators, and partners access to anything even though we are located across the state. We can easily create and share files and link to other platforms for easy access. Its intuitive so even less tech saavy folks pick up using the workspace.

Cons:

There isn't something I particularly don't like.

Google Workspace is the best for Education.

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: It's been great. I highly recommend Google Workspace if you're in the market for Chromebooks.

Pros:

It's simple to use and simple to manage. The Organizational Units will save your lunch! I enjoy the ability to disable lost Chromebooks so easily.

Cons:

While customer support is good, it can be difficult to get in touch with someone if you need to speak to anyone.
