Now Access Google Keep From Within Google Docs!
We have a wide range of note-taking apps available on our smartphones these days.
One of the most popular competitor to note-taking apps like Evernote and Microsoft’s OneNote has been ‘Google Keep’ which is now getting collaborated with the group of applications targeted at businesses, G Suite by Google. This integration will allow Keep to become a part of the user’s work plan and to capture ideas, jot down reminders and to-do-lists, create checklists, make notes of meetings and many more such things.
The added advantage is that Google Keep is not only getting collaborated with G Suite but also with Google Docs which means you can now simply drag and drop notes from Keep to Docs according to what Google claims. The only drawback is that we access this feature only through the web and it needs you to have Docs downloaded and open in your browser. Then you can access the notepad of Keep from the menu in the Tools option which will then accommodate Keep notes into a sidebar within the user interface of Docs.
After setting up Keep with Docs you can do various things like capture notes as well as images and checklists, and simply gather them right into the Docs. Additionally, you will even be able to search the Keep notes not only from the Keep app but also from Google Docs as well as save new notes to from both Google Docs and Google Keep. In order to save a new note from Google Docs you need to follow a simple step of selecting the text in your document, then right-click on the selection and select the “Save to Keep notepad” option. The genius part of this collaboration is that there will be a link in the note to go back to the source document from where the note was created in Google Docs.
There are a lot of users from the business, education and government base who use the Google Keep app and may not form a major consumer base of the app. So it seems to be a logical and an expert move from Google to integrate Google Keep with Google Docs. This also helps to keep the business-focused notes securely with the company’s domain itself and can be managed, supported and searched since it is a part of G Suite. Google Keep can be used on platforms like Android, iOS, Chrome or Web and is available for download to G Suite customers.
