We will work on basic principles in Google products, such as sharing documents, organizing drive, converting Microsoft Office files, and more. This is the session for beginning users and those that want to make sure they know the basics. Session participants may want to bring a flash drive or have access to Word files so those files can be uploaded to Drive.
