Let’s start with Thank You.
Thank you for making free software that’s so good that I cringe a little every time someone sends me a PowerPoint file. It’s been over five years since I made G Suite my go-to software and (with one exception) I’ve never looked back. So please take the following observations as the suggestions of a generally satisfied (and grateful!) customer.
Let’s start with Google Docs. You guys really nailed it with this one. We use the collaborative features nearly every day, sometimes even in real time while on team calls. The range of controls from View Only, to Comments, to (my personal favorite) Suggest edits, to full Edit mode simply and elegantly covers all my use cases. The formatting options are the perfect balance between simplicity and power; if I need anything fancier, I simply switch to Slides. If I had any complaint, it’s that I don’t need email updates every time somebody accepts my deletion of an extra space or comma. If you could find a way to hide trivial edit activity (perhaps the same way you default to suppress duplicative search results) but give me the option to see all activity, that would be awesome.
