G Suite Updates coming over the next two weeks











 G Suite is making changes in the next couple of weeks to help make things easier for users.

Menu and Toolbar Editors 

Changes that affect the Google Docs and Google Slides menus: 
  • In the Format menu, text formatting options (including bold, italic, font size, and more) will be moved to a new “Text” submenu.

Changes that only affect Google Slides menus: 

  • The Table menu will be removed. Options to add or remove a table will be in the Insert menu. Options to format tables will be in the Format menu. 
  • In the Slide menu, four options for moving slides will be moved to a new “Move” submenu. 
  • In the Arrange menu, "Align horizontally" and "Align vertically" will be moved into a new "Align" submenu. 

Changes that only affect Google Docs menus and toolbars: 
  • In the toolbar, text color and highlight color will be split into separate controls for each. 
  • In the toolbar, a new option will be added to “Insert image” 
  • The Table menu will be removed. Options to add or remove a table will be in the Insert menu. Options to format tables will be in the Format menu. 

Changes that affect all Docs editors menus (including Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets): 
  • Items in the Insert menu will be reordered.

On March 21, 2018 staff at Bonny Eagle will begin seeing the new Activity Dashboard feature in Docs, Sheets and Slides.  You will see a notification that will explain Activity Dashboard and your control (user options).  

Activity Dashboard will allow any staff member with editing access to a Doc, Sheet or Slide see when a person with access to the document has viewed it.  Using this information, you can let users know when you have updated a document by sending an email to collaborators of the document or see if no one is accessing the document at all and it no longer needs to be shared.
