Web Tool Wednesday: Google Drive Plugin for Microsoft Office ... the best of BOTH WORLDS!

Last summer Google released news of a Google Drive plugin for Microsoft Office on their Google Drive blog.  Last week we finally had time to give it a try and it is PRETTY AWESOME!  Here's how it works...

  1. Install the plugin here.
  2. Create an Office document or open an existing one and go to File > Save As > Google Drive
  3. You should see your connected account ... then click Save As and give your document a name
  4. Go check your Google Drive and VOILA! Your Office document is there!
Please note that this plugin is only compatible with Office.  Also, you will not be able to modify your Office document in Drive, just view.  However, if you make changes to the document in Office and save, it will re-sync in your Drive.
