GoogleApps_May30_CCloud services have really became popular in the past two years. One of the most popular cloud services is Google Docs. Docs offers a word processing solution that allows users to access their documents from anywhere they have Internet access. To make the application even better, Google has introduced a new function called Research.

In order to help make people more productive, Google Docs has a new feature called Research. Say you’re developing a flyer for a new product and need to know if a quote you’ve just used is accurate. Normally you’d have to open another browser tab and search for the quote. With Research, you can simply highlight the quote, right click and select Research. A pane will open on the right side of the document with the search results.

Hover your mouse over a result for a second, and you’ll notice three options: Preview, Inert link and Cite. Clicking Preview will open another pane with a preview of the website. Selecting Insert link will turn your selection into a hyperlink. If you press Cite, a citation will be added to the footnote of the document. To add a picture or map to your document, simply drag the picture over and it’ll be added along with an attribution to the source of the image.

If you don’t see the Research pane on your document, press Ctrl+Alt+R on Windows and Command+Option+R on Mac. You can also select Tools followed by Research from the bar under the title of the document.

Research is a great tool that could make you more efficient. If you’re interested in learning more about other features of Google Docs, please contact us. We’d be happy to help you.
