  1. Use add-ons. Curate social media content, create a bibliography and more in documents and spreadsheets by using one of the many add-ons available for Google Drive. Add-ons are located on the toolbar.    
  2. Track activity. You can see all changes made to your drive by clicking on the “i” in the right-hand corner.     
  3. Monitor revisions. You can save up to 100 revisions on your drive. Access them by clicking File, then See Revision History.    
  4. Work in spreadsheets offline. Work offline and your spreadsheet will update when you reconnect.    
  5. Find keyboard shortcuts. See a list of all keyboard shortcuts by pressing Shift and the question mark key.  
  6. Control access. You can create settings within documents and control what actions each person is able to take. Control comments or edits by setting access levels under Share settings.    
  7. Send large files. Gmail limits attachment size to 25MB. Use your drive to send larger files by opening an email and then clicking on the small Drive icon. 
The same applies to receiving larger files. Save them to your drive from your email by hovering over the file and clicking on the Drive icon that appears.
