Google is making every lawyer’s dream come true, at least the dreams of those who use track changes, or at least collaborate on editing. Google Docs allows users to suggest edits without effecting the overall text of the document. This is a great feature if you want to put one person in control of the entire document modification process.

However, a lot of lawyers use Microsoft Word’s suggested edits tool, which don’t appear in Google Docs. At least until today.

A new update to Google Drive allows users to synchronize suggested edits from Microsoft Word .docx documents.

This is huge!


I think  this will entice a lot of Microsoft users to jump over to Google Drive.

I’m not sure there are too many other Microsoft Word features that Docs is missing. Can you name any?
