Google Drive Tips, Tricks, and Ideas

Google Drive is a evolutionary (and, at times, revolutionary) set of online tools that you can use to perform tasks historically requiring expensive business software. Drive includes a word processor (Docs), a spreadsheet program (Sheets), a presentation program (Slides), and an assortment of other tools that can help you channel your creative juices. Best of all—Google Drive is free!

Even though Google Drive is a breakthrough set of tools, that doesn't mean that they are problem free. I'm not talking about bugs in the programs; I'm talking about the frustrations that naturally arise when you can't make the programs do what you need them to do.
