28 Apr Access files offline with Google Docs, Sheets and Slides

You shouldn’t have to depend on the internet to be able to do our work. That is why Google have launched a new feature allowing Google Apps admins to enable offline access to files on Google Docs, Sheets and Slides.

The user’s files are synced into their device depending on certain criteria, primarily recency which will take place once the user has enabled offline access. Another new feature is allowing users to choose the files they want to make available for offline access. This will only be available to users working in a Chrome browser on their desktop computer and to whose admins have allowed them to enable offline access in Drive, making it super easy for users to work without having the internet.

Let’s take a look at how you can make your file available for offline access:

Go to your Doc, sheet or Slides home screen as shown below.
