Using Google Docs Plug-in For Microsoft Office | Offisync

For many years we are hearing that the future is of cloud computing. But synchronizing the offline world with online
is the only way which makes a perfect match for users. Neither only
the online applications can fulfill all the demands of an active user, nor can
mere offline applications allow you to remain synchronized with your friends
and colleagues.
For example take the example of online text editor Google
docs of Google which allows you to edit your documents online and as your work
is saved online you can allow your friends to edit your work. Not only this but
you can see other users’ editing online in real time “character by character”.
Moreover you can chat with the person by using the chat option presented in
Docs. You can also edit
your Google docs documents from any mobile device
like Android-based
handsets running Froyo version 2.2 as well as from an iPhone, iPad or iPod
touch running Apple iOS version 3 or higher.
Thus Google Docs now enables
you to edit your documents on the go. These are the amazing features which make
Google docs an amazing tool but young Docs still lags behind the most popular
competitor Microsoft Office for many functionalities which Google Docs is
unable to provide yet. On the other hand Microsoft Office provides you with a solid
control but cannot make you go online for collaboration with friends for
editing any documents in real time. That is why I say that combination of both
offline and online tools can make a perfect match.

And, now this has happened now, as Google has released a
plug-in for Microsoft office which allows you to make Google Docs go compatible
with Microsoft office. Plug-in is known as Offisync.
More precisely this is an add-on
allowing you to import and export the files from Google docs to Office and vice
. More precisely the plug-in is an add-on with the help of which you
can import your documents from Google Docs, edit them and then export them to
back to your Google Docs library. You can import text documents, spreadsheets
and presentations.

However one ambiguity is caused among many people who become
confused with the name of plug-in. The plug-in offisync does no actually automatically synchronize your office
edited files with that of Google docs and vice versa. But it only allows you to
create versions of files for editing which you can then import or export to any
of the editor.
Despite being a very useful plug-in, it might not be very
much helpful. This is because Microsoft Office contains many features and
functionalities which Google Docs is unable to provide. This can make some of
the options of office incompatible with
. The plug-in however carries some potential uses for many users like
many of you might not be comfortable using an online editor but still want to
benefit from real time collaborative edits. For this purpose you can create or
edit an office file and then export it to online Google docs interface. Thus,
allowing you to allow other people to edit files.
