NEW CONTACTS FEATURE 2
You can also specify which email address is used in a given group.
For starters there is a new preview panel on the right sidebar, you can preview videos in the preview pane, its easier to view pictures/images, its simpler to explore and browse your files and more (read the entire post for more info on these features, visit Google Docs to explore, you can even take a guided tour in Google Docs that’s really informative, and there’s an Getting Started with Google Docs page, too).
Google is asking for help improving Tasks and I’ve got a couple of ideas that I think would be pretty useful. Very similar to what Armo said (http://goo.gl/mod/7XCq) about flexibility between Tasks and Email and links to the original entry.
At the risk of some repetition of Armo’s post I’d love to see Tasks, Gmail, Google Docs and Calendar integrated to the point that any of one could be turned into any of the other with links back to whatever is needed.
Was that nebulous enough? Here’s an example… let’s say I have an appointment I’ve entered into my GCalendar for a doctor’s appointment six months from now. I setup the appointment with an email reminder (as I usually do) to remind me before the appointment so I can let my boss know – all of this is normal so far. Additionally, I need to bring my medication list to the appointment and I found a website with some great info I want to talk to my doctor about when I have the appointment also. It would be great if I could open a Google Doc an type in my medication list and associate that with the GCalendar event/reminder, and have a Task pop up the day before in whatever Task list is currently active during the time the event reminder is fire off reminding me, and possibly linking to the website with that great info I want to discuss with my doc, along with another link to my Google Doc (meds list).
At the risk of being redundant while trying to explain in one situation how this could all fit together, the email reminder would arrive with the website link to that great info, have my Google doc attached, and a handy link to Google Maps based on the info I entered into the calendar event.
Now I’m covered… on that day six months in the future if I am in GCalendar, or in Gmail using Tasks, or reading email I cannot miss my appointment – even if I ignore the emails. Of course, emails and Google docs could have links to GCalendar Events, etc… etc… so that they all interact with, link to and manage information between and with one another.
Gmail Task Poll – let your voice and ideas be heard, and let the Gmail Tasks team know what you want.
The title of this post says it all: View Word .doc Files with 1 Click in Gmail
Of course, you’ve already been able to open some other documents like this in Google Docs such as PDFs…
Okay, I probably won’t use this feature but this isn’t just MY blog, its for readers in the blogosphere and I’m sure some of you will jump on this feature.
If someone sends you an email with a Google Doc link you can preview it in Gmail.
Above is the screenshot from the original Gmail Blog post, and as you can see there are 2 Googe Docs links, with pretty cool options for previewing. If you click Show preview it will show the preview in a space right below the link itself, right on your email! If you prefer, just click Open in a new window and you get the same view as if you’d opened the document directly from Google Docs.
