Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Google Docs to replace Word, part of Migrating from Office 2013 to Google Apps.
- Google Docs may not have all the features…that Microsoft Word has,…but if there's one thing you can do with Google Docs,…it's get your work done.…I'm gonna give you a very quick overview of Google Docs…so that you can get started using it right away.…If you want to learn Google Docs in its entirety,…you can watch my other course,…Google Docs Essential Training.…But for now, let's create a new blank doc.…And we do that by clicking the red New button…and selecting Google Docs.…This is going to open up a blank Google Doc.…
The first thing we want to do is give the doc a name.…This is how I'll find it in Google Drive.…We don't have to save it because…Google Docs saves our files for us automatically,…but it's the equivalent of clicking File, Save As,…in Microsoft Word.…In the top left-hand side of the screen,…I'm gonna click on Title document.…This is going to bring up the Rename document dialog box…and now I can give my document a title.…Click the blue Okay button,…and our document's been titled…and it's automatically saved.…
