Norski Ninja: Week 4

It’s week four of your Norski Ninja challenge!  Here are a few ways to advance to blue, red, and purple belts in GoogleApps.

  • Mail tip:  You may have noticed a section in Gmail called “Chat.”  This is a great feature for communicating with someone in real time.  To give it a try, choose a colleague available for chat (with green dot) and start typing!  If you’d rather not be disturbed, or would like to let others know what you’re doing, you can set your status.  Under your name, click “Set status here” then add your custom message or choose from a list using the drop down arrow.
  • Docs tip:  You’d like to share a document with others while keeping the original intact… Think about creating a handout that others can keep for themselves, edit, or share back with you… You can create a GoogleDocs template.  Your users can grab the template which creates its own copy in their Docs home page.

Please add a comment below to share how you’re using these tips and be entered into the drawing for fabulous Google prizes!

  1. I love using the templates. It’s so easy and a great way to share documents we make so that we are not wasting our time recreating things.

    Does anyone know how I can get my task list from Google calender on the Xoom? It doesn’t seem to be an option on the calendar app.
