Description

Frustrated with using a server for team projects? Not quite sure if a move to Google Apps is the right fit? This table talk will cover our team's adoption of Google Apps and Team Drive for the vast majority of our work and our move away from exclusive use of our server storage system. This coordinated shift in process has significantly improved our team’s efficiency. In addition, our adoption of Google Apps and Team Drive more easily allows all team members to work remotely when needed without the burden of waiting for documents on our server to load, trying to work on documents already opened and locked by another user, or being kicked off the server mid-project due to various connection issues. We'll answer questions or concerns others might have and discuss:

  • The impact of our move to Google Apps for a variety of roles on our team

  • Common practices that have been made more efficient by our move to Google Apps

  • Strategies that have helped set our team up for success

  • Lessons learned
