Google Docs Update Enhances Access to Content

Google Apps users sometimes wrestle with the same problems as users of Google's popular search engine -- how to quickly find the most relevant information.

To be sure, in the past few years Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) and its search competitors have added features to present users with the most relevant results at the top of the page. The company has also added relevancy features to its Gmail email service, giving users the option to view a Priority inbox that ranks emails based on their likely importance.

About a year ago, Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) gave Docs users the ability to upload, store and share any file in the Google Docs cloud so that they are then available wherever the user happens to log into Google Apps. In a blog post today, Google introduced a refresh to Google Docs that's designed to help users better organize the number and variety of files they can access in one place.

For example, Google Docs now has several filters designed to help users narrow a search by file type, visibility state and other criteria.

Read Datamation's report on the new features including a Priority feature that has a few things in common with an earlier update to Gmail.
