Google Docs is changing to Google Drive

Dear Ross Community:

As you know, in June of this year we finalized our transition to Google as our email solution.  As part of the deal, we were also given access to 40+ additional “apps” within the Google suite of products.  The purpose of this email is to alert you to a change to one of the more popular apps, Google Docs.  This is an informational email only, and no action is required on your part.

Google Docs is a popular way of creating, storing, and sharing word processing documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.  Google has made some significant changes to how Docs functions, most notably that it is now referred to as Google Drive.

Google Drive comes with a new user interface, and some new functionality.  You may have noticed this already.  You had the option of “opting in” to the change early on, so if you already use Google Drive, you will not see any change.  If you’ve not yet switched to Google Drive, you will be automatically upgraded sometime over the next several weeks.  This will only change the way Google Docs looks and feels—none of your files will be removed or modified.

For more information, please refer to our webpage, which also explains some of the new features such as the ability to sync your documents to your desktop and across mobile devices.

Please also consider following us on Twitter (@UMRossIT) to get updates, news related to technology at Ross, and helpful links.

Thank you,

Ross Technology
