Here are our top 10 G Suite Training  tips and tricks:

Tip #1
Advanced Search for Google Calendar

Use the Advanced Search for Google Calendar to find events with specific people and at specific locations.




Tip #2
Undo Send
If you make a typo or change your mind about sending an email, you can take back an email using the Undo Send feature.




Tip #3
Desktop Notifications
"We are all guilty of constantly switching back to Gmail to check for new messages." But with Gmail desktop notifications, it is now possible to display pop-ups whenever a chat message or new email arrives.




Tip #4
Invite Multiple People to Hangout
You can use Hangouts to talk with multiple people at the same time. Send messages in a group conversation with up to 150 people, or have a video call with up to 10 people!

 

Tip #5
Colour Coding Folders in Google Drive
Google Drive lets you organize your documents by creating folders. You can have nested folders too. But did you know that you can also color-code your folders to make your life easier?


 

Tip #6
Adding Attachment to Calendar Invites
Google Calendar allows you to attach documents to calendar invites.  You can use this feature to attach an agenda, a spreadsheet, a presentation, or any other useful information you wish discuss during the meeting. You will be quick to get a meeting rolling since guests have the necessary information prior!

 

Tip #7
Advanced Search in Gmail
It can be hard to browse through all your old emails just to find the one you need. So, try searching with Gmail's advanced options instead!

 

Tip #8
Making a Task List with Google
You can tackle your to-do list with Google Tasks. Keep track of your daily to-do list, organize multiple lists, and track important deadlines with Google Tasks. Create and update your tasks from Gmail or Calendar; they sync so your changes automatically show in both places!

 

Tip #9
Labels for Gmail

Wanna get your inbox organized? Here is how you can, using Gmail labels!

Tip #10
Inserting a Video into Google Slides
Including videos in your Google Slides presentation can boost your audience’s attention and interest, especially when it provides comedic relief after a few serious slides.
It’s a piece of cake to include a YouTube video in your slide!
