AppsCare provide Google Apps, a cloud-based suite of collaborative tools to thousands of companies across the globe. Google Presentations, similar to the Microsoft product, 'PowerPoint' is part of the Google Apps suite. AppsCare customers are now able to view and edit Google Presentations even when there is no Internet connection available. Offline capabilities for Google Presentations impact customers of AppsCare, a Google Enterprise Premier Partner. This will "increase remote access for our customers using the suite as it provides access to presentations when travelling on an airplane or train without wireless Internet," said a spokesperson from AppsCare.
How does it work? All formatting changes are saved to a local cache and then synched to Google Drive when back online. When working online any edits that are made when using Google Drive products are automatically saved, so there is no need to worry about searching for the latest version of a file.
In order for AppsCare's customers to be able to work in offline mode, it needs to be enabled.
A few things to note:
- Set up computers individually. If offline access is required on both a laptop and desktop computer, it will need to be set it up twice — once on each computer.
- It's Chrome-only. Offline access is unavailable in other browsers. Give Chrome a try!
