Google Docs for sharing copy


Google Docs is a free, powerful and dynamic tool use to collaborate with our clients in order to collect website content. It is perfect for sharing website copy when working remotely. It creates a single file we work on (no more drafts v.1, 2 and so on) and it gives you the ability to make comments and edits viewable by our team, in real-time. We are also able to comment by asking questions etc. Whenever a comment is made a notification is sent to the associated email address, so no one ever misses a beat. It even has an instant chat feature built-in so we can discuss the content while both Pathfind Media and the client is in the Google Doc.  

To create a new file:
  1. From Google Drive, locate and select the New button, then choose the type of file you want to create. In our example, we’ll select Google Docs to create a new document.
  2. Your new file will appear in a new tab on your browser. …
  3. The Rename dialogue box will appear. …
  4. Your file will be renamed.
