Summer Luxury

These Bowls are beautiful

 

I recently started working entirely in the cloud. My work files live in Google Drive, and I use Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides for the majority of my business work.

One problem, which I mentioned when describing my transition to working entirely in the cloud in last week's column, is that working offline is possible but that requires setting it up ahead of time.

Sure, that sounds reasonable. Before you work offline, of course you need to set up a few things in advance! The problem happens when you don't realize you won't have Internet access. You know what they say about assumptions...

Maybe you board an airplane thinking there will be Wi-Fi, and there isn't. Or you arrive at a hotel where you expected Wi-Fi, but the ISP is down. What if a storm knocks out your Internet access at your home? Or maybe you were so excited about a trip to Tahiti that you plum forgot to set up offline access. It happens.

If you don't want this to happen to you, you need to set up Google Drive offline access now. Here's how.
