Google Docs & Spreadsheets - Cool Now

Google Docs & Spreadsheets matures with a fresh new face

When you log in to Google Docs & Spreadsheets today, you might be in for a bit of a surprise: Google has completed a pretty significant redesign. Since Google Docs & Spreadsheets launched less than a year ago, they have made dozens of updates to enable better collaboration. With this latest refresh, you'll see that Google have been listening to feedback and spending time thinking about the best ways to stay organized.

Some highlights of the clean new look:
  • Sidebar with folders: For those who used tags, all your tags have been converted into folders, and you can now drag and drop your documents into any folder. Just like tags, docs can live in multiple folders.
  • Documents sorted by collaborator: Sometimes you can't think of the title or even the content of a document, but you remember whom you shared it with or who shared it with you. To make sorting easier, we've added new "created by me" and "shared with..." folders.
  • Better search: With autocomplete, all relevant documents, folders, and collaborators are displayed as soon as you begin typing your search query.
The redesign also includes new icons, chronological sorting, and an easier way to save documents in alternate formats.

These features and other improvements are now available to anybody using Google Docs & Spreadsheets at http://docs.google.com
