Google Drive is also beneficial as a location for shared documents and files that team members need to access regularly (or even once). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like how compact the Google Workspace is specially what is included on the workspace, like you can use multiple office apps in it, not only that it really helps with managing your workloads and instead of working offline you can have it uploaded on your google drive as well as share it to appropriate people that you deemed worthy. Plus not only is it for work, but it is also available for recreational purposes such as podcasts, drawings for something that you have in mind all with unlimited access.

Google has taken a lot of the hassle out of setting up your business with Google Workspace. The team provides a custom email address, calendar, document and spreadsheet tools, along with collaboration tools like Gmail, Calendar, and Meet. You can also set up sites to connect with other websites and access them from anywhere using an Android device or Web browser. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The fact Gmail retains information about the user; the nesting of email threads. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Google rewrites external links in emails to hit their server before being rerouted to the final destination. There can be only one reason for this, to track you. The worst part about this is that they don't tell you they are doing it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Why would Google offer free email? Because they read it; that's why. In fact, they will even report suspicious emails to the authorities. Not that I'd ever break the law, but I don't need a company monitoring my email. Host email on your own mail server and keep Google out of your life. Also, clear your cookies daily and never surf the web while logged into Google. They are tracking and storing every website you ever visit. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The best thing about workspace is that it keeps your life in order. Be it your daily schedules, your files or your photos and videos back up. I have been all reliant with the software for years.

Service client pas fluide , pas ractif a se tirer les cheveux

Support technique totalement inexistant. Lorsque l'on paye en tant que professionnel, on s'attend en avoir pour notre argent. En ralit c'est comme gmail gratuit mais payant, sans aucun service support, une honte.

We use Google Workspace as full suite solution for our needs including email, authentication to an in-house database, creating documents, spreadsheets, slide presentations for talks, etc. We make use of Google Drive to share files between workers and to communicate with our Board of Trustees. Google Workspace is at the heart of our inter-office communications.
Email. Google Drive. Authentication.

Google Workplace is the central hub for everything we do. Gmail, calendar, forms, docs, sheets, slides, so in essence it replaced Microsoft Office years ago. We like it due to the simplicity of sharing, the ease of use, and the lack of bloated features that never get used. The best thing about it is how many other companies we work with use it, making sharing and scheduling a breeze.
Sharing files. Nothing is as easy. Making templates-you just save them that way. Forms that integrate into Sheets for tracking data.

I am a solopreneur and use Google Workspace for all kinds of things. First of all, I use the custom domain for my email address. It works so much better through Workspace than the company where I bought my domain. I also use Google Workspace for my work calendar, creating surveys, sharing files (Sheets, Docs, Slides, and Drive), and even for Google My Business. And I occasionally use Google Meet, though I prefer Zoom. It's terrific to have an entire suite of products that works both easily and seamlessly together. I have been very happy with it, and have referred it to others.
It's terrific to have a suite of products that is built to work together, rather than having to piece tools together. The email and calendar are the tools I use most often together. I use Gmail through Apple Mail rather than in the browser, and it works great. Also really easy to access and use my calendar. I use the other suite of features both for my own company internally and to share files with clients. Super easy to use and share.

Utilized for management of corporate email addresses and file storage for many years. The quality of support and complexity of data migrations have been declining every year.
Complete lack of sales team support. Inability of the support team in solving simple issues. Complex data migration system, to force clients to remain current users.
- Russ MichaelsJedi Master
I use it on a daily basis for myself and my business, I also use it for my family and resell it to clients. It is primarily used as a secure business email solution and cloud storage. I find it preferable and more secure than Office 365, and easier to manage.
customer support (terrible) Partner support (realy really terrible) downloading mail from external sources

We use it across the organization - every department has access to it and we use it and along with Microsoft Office apps for external compatibility. Its sharing functionality addresses the dreaded email and merges chain that you so often get in office. It also handles our organization's email which is fairly well best of the breed.
Import/export from MS Word/Excel/etc is a massive problem (claimed to work but causes problems, can't copy/paste with comments/etc) Spreadsheets are VERY slow seems like it was more robust in the past: odd errors with permissions (you cannot access your own document) crop up regularly. Support has significantly dropped off - the assumption is that it works and you can fix it yourself (and you can't always) Offline editing still a problem (claimed to work, craps the bed) Limited functionality: word and excel are slightly too massive beasts but google docs are too limited.

Google Workspace is a great application without any issues. Documents can sync easily and it is really quick to upload documents online. Additionally, it integrates well with Google's other programs such as calendar, Google sheets, Google meet and many others, giving an under one roof experience. The security infrastructure is also world class. However Google Workspace is pricey, costing at the top of the range compared to competitors so it might not be ideal for small businesses or start up businesses. Furthermore, Google seems to be less innovative especially when one considers how much it's smaller competitors are doing. It's a matter of time before it loses ground especially to competitors like Zoho Workdrive.

As a research driven individual, i have looked for a variety of resources that allow me to collaborate with my teammates on research articles that have a very tight deadline. I came across Google Software that is a highly sophisticated website with a variety of online features to accommodate any research needs from editing and formatting documents to creating folders for organization purposes and other features. I highly recommend this software to any organization that needs collaboration tools.
- Zahid H.System Engineer
It offers a wide range of tools and features to enhance productivity and collaboration, making it a popular choice for businesses and organizations. The platform is easy to use and offers seamless integration with other Google products. However, some users may experience limitations in customization options and data privacy. Overall, Google Workspace has been well received for its cost-effectiveness, accessibility, and ease of use.

With Google being the giant that it is, I'm honestly not sure where to go if I do need support of any kind for G Suite. It's not like Google has a main switchboard that you can all in to and "press 1 for technical support." Perhaps they do and I don't know it. But thankfully, it's very very rare that I need support beyond what can be found online. I wouldn't hesitate to deploy G Suite with any of the companies I oversee.
Privacy issues, huge control, not following standards, and have their own proprietary standards to login to the web mail interface, censorship. Avoid.
Easy to use. Google Suite of products having consistent user experience and possible collaboration makes it powerful.
