The most popular online service for working with office documents is Google Docs. Moreover, in terms of its features and usability, it’s almost as good as the Word application from Microsoft. And given the tight integration of all Google services, it probably even exceeds it. Google Docs has many useful features that not everyone knows about.
One of such useful features is the ability to create a one-page landscape. So, here’s how you can do it.

How to work offline in Google Docs
Google Docs provides a useful way to view and edit documents even if you’re not connected to the Internet. If you have edited any document, the changes are saved as soon as the connection is available.
To activate this feature, you need to enter the settings by clicking on the “three lines” icon, which is located at the top right of the main document window and looks like three bars. In the window that appears, move the “Offline mode” switch to the enabled position.
After that, you will need to install the Chrome browser extension called “Google Docs offline”. After completing all these steps, you will be able to work with documents even when there’s no Internet connection.
How to set up sharing access in Google Docs
One of the most popular features that the Google Docs platform provides for working with documents is sharing. Thanks to this feature, you can’t send the same document to different people, but allow them to edit and comment on it directly in Google Drive.
To set up sharing, you need to click on the blue button “Share”, which is located in the upper right corner of the window. After that, you will need to enter the name of the document, under which it will be stored in Google Drive.
As a result of the previous action, you will have a window consisting of two parts – the top and the bottom. In the upper part of the window, you can give access to individual users. To do this, enter the e-mail address of the user in the “Add users or groups” field.
The specified user will then receive a corresponding notification. This method is convenient if you want to give access to one person or a small number of people.
If you need to grant access to the document to a sufficiently large number of users, you can click on the “Allow access to everyone with a link” link. When the link appears on the screen, you will need to copy it and send it to those to whom you want to grant access.
