Updates to Google Apps

Customize Google Apps Launcher
Google's ever-evolving universe now offers end-users the ability to customize their experience. 

Icons for your Google Apps can now be dragged and dropped to organize your apps in a way that makes the most sense to you. Put your most-used apps in the top row and move others to another screen. The possibilities are endless.

Cross-Domain Sharing
We can now share docs and other files outside of our @NILESK12 and @D219 addresses thanks to Google's new Whitelisted Domains. 

This means that users can collaborate on files with specific users outside of our organization without having to give editing rights to 'anyone with the link,' thus making access more secure and controlled.

Microsoft Office Plug-In
Google has released a Microsoft Office plug-in to better foster cross-platform collaboration. We already could save files as .docx and other Office formats, but now users can store and share their MS Office files directly from Drive and not lose any functionality. 

Presently, this plug-in works on Windows computers and Office 2007 or newer. Office 365 must be installed locally for this plug-in to work.
