Productivity Hack: Using Google Docs Offline

One great blessing (and occasional curse) of most jobs today is that work can be done remotely. Cloud services like Google Docs and Sheets and Dropbox have enabled increased productivity and the ability to access your files anywhere, anytime. Well, almost anytime: you still need internet access.

Google has recently rolled out an addition to Google Docs to allow offline access. Yep, you read that right: offline access! This means that you can keep working on that pesky TPS report after your plane has taken off or when your subway train goes underground. Pretty cool, right?

To turn on the new offline mode feature, you just need to follow a few simple steps:

1. Click the settings “hamburger” in the upper left corner


2. Go to Settings


3. Turn on Offline mode!


All set! Enjoy your new productivity hack.
