Google Drive Keeps Club Organized and Connected With 69 members and 79 service projects last academic year, the University of Texas at Austin Lions need more than their enthusiasm and dedication to service— they also need to be highly organized and efficient. This high-energy, tech-savvy club relies on Google Drive to collaborate on tasks and streamline club operations. “Google offers many tools that are similar to the Microsoft Office Suite such as Google Docs [Word], Google Sheets [Excel], Google Slides [PowerPoint], and Google Forms that are our bread and butter for organization,” says 2015-16 Club President Darren Tan. Google Drive offers a central location to store, update and share club files. Use the app to upload photos and videos, collaborate on presentations, edit spreadsheets, update forms and more. With the ability to access files from a smartphone, tablet or computer, your files follow you to every club event or project. “We use Google Forms for service project sign-ups so our coordinators can have all of the participants’ information at their fingertips during the events. Meeting minutes are streamlined with Google Docs, with multiple people able to type at the same time. And when we do presentations using Google Slides multiple people can edit the slides, so the information is always updated without one person having to fix every detail,” says Tan. Start out with 15 GB of free storage, with the option to purchase more. Find the app at the iTunes or Google Play stores or learn more.
