Get the most out of Google Apps: Tips and Tricks for your users!

Five things you may not know you can do with attachments:

We know that if you're using Google Docs then you're familiar with the ease of no longer having to send attachments back and forth. However, many
still use attachments daily, so we've put together a few tips on how to
get the most out of Gmail and attachments:


1. Drag attachments in and out
In: Simply drag files from your desktop right into the message you're composing and they'll upload from there. (Make sure
you're using Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox 3.6 or Safari 5 for this to
work.)
Out: Simply drag the icon for a Gmail attachment to your
desktop. (Note that dragging attachments out is only supported in Google
Chrome for now.)


2. Select multiple attachments
Attaching multiple files one by one is no fun. Instead, just
multi-select the files you want to attach by holding down the Ctrl key
(or Command on a Mac) and clicking on each file you want to attach.
Holding down the shift key will select a continuous list of files.

3. Never forget an attachment again


Gmail looks for phrases in your email that suggest you meant to attach a file
(things like "I've attached" or "see attachment") and warns you if it
looks like you forgot to do so. Every day, this saves many people the
embarrassment of having to send a follow up email with the file actually
attached.


4. View attachments online
When you receive an attachment, sometimes you just want to view it and
there's no need to download or save it to your desktop. The Google Docs
viewer allows you to view .pdf, .ppt, .tiff, .doc and .docx files in
your browser. Just click the 'View' link at the bottom of the message.


5. Find that long-lost attachment
If you'
re looking for an attachment someone has sent to you, Gmail's advanced search operators can help you find what you're looking for quickly and accurately e.g. 'has:attachment pdf'.

Good news! Today we upgraded our chat application. If you regularly use chat, you'll probably find the new chat more friendly and reliable:

• Easy to find: You'll find the new chat in your browser window's footer. Click on it and start chatting (click again to close it).
• More responsive: It should snap to attention and respond to your commands better than the old chat.
• Better technology: It's not Flash-based anymore, so it will even work on some mobile devices.
• New sounds and notifications: You can turn those off if you want. You'll also see a visual notification when new messages are posted.
• Ignore people: Choose who you want to chat with — or click the "Ignore" button. It's up to you.
• Pop it out: Need more space to chat? Pop it out into its own window.

Give the new chat a try!
