Writing a Project in Google Docs
First of all, the user needs to create an account on the Google Docs website (docs.google.com). A working email address will be required for creating an account. The email address does not necessarily need to be a Gmail address.
Once the account is created, the next step is to login. A welcome page shall appear and there the user can click on the ‘New Document’ button and open a new document.
This document, as mentioned above, can be a word processing document, spreadsheet or a presentation. The user can choose the file type based on his/her requirements. The document can be edited in the same way you edit MS Office documents.
The next step is to add a list of users who will be accessing the document. At the top right corner of the screen, there is a button labeled ‘Collaborate’. Once it is clicked, a form appears asking for the email addresses of the users whom you want to grant permission.
Permissions can be of two types:
If the main user wants to assign read/write access privileges to other users, he/she should select ‘As Collaborators.’ To assign restricted access to other users, he/she should select ‘As Viewers.’
