Docs & Spreadsheets is a web-based word processing and spreadsheet program that helps people in your organization collaborate on files and update documents from any internet-connected computer. Google started offering this new service for Google Apps for Education on 22nd February 2007, if your administrator has activated this service, you can get started right away by creating a new document or by uploading a file from your computer. Like your other Google Apps services, Docs & Spreadsheets is integrated with your Gmail contacts list so it’s easy to invite people to view or edit your files.

Main Features

Share a document with others, and you’ll all be able to work together on the same document from different computers. Multiple people can make changes at once, and everyone’s changes show in real-time. When you’re ready, you can publish your document to an internet address that can be accessed by your entire organization. If you need to make a change, you can edit the document and choose to republish once you’re ready.
