Google Workspace—our integrated solution that brings together Gmail, Meet, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drive, and more—helps people and businesses safely connect, create, and collaborate from anywhere. With such a powerful set of tools, it can be hard to know where to start or whether you’re getting everything Google Workspace has to offer. To help you along your Google Workspace journey, here is a series of guides and on-demand training options that can take you from a beginner to a power user in no time.
Getting started with Google Workspace
If you’re new to Google Workspace, the Learning Center will help you get started with the basics. Discover how to prepare for the switch to Google Workspace from day 1, including how to set up Chrome, Gmail, and Calendar across your company’s devices. You’ll also learn ways Google Workspace can help you communicate effectively, share and collaborate, run projects, and boost your productivity.
Once you’re up and running, we offer a number of resources to help you do more with the Workspace tools on our support site. For example, this article on video conferencing offers tips to make your video meetings more inclusive and productive, with instructions on how to bring in polling, Q&A, and breakout sessions in Meet. You can take distributed collaboration even further with insights on helping remote and in-person employees work together in this section on hybrid work environments.
We offer a variety of training guides to suit different learning objectives and use cases. Learn how to do more with Google Workspace with guides focused on different roles—such as this article on project management—and industries—including this popular one on the financial sector.
We also offer a wide variety of guides that focus on each individual product. Dive deeper into the tools your team already uses, or ones that you hope to adopt, to learn how to better connect with your teammates wherever they are, bring your projects to life, while safely controlling access to files and data.
Take your training further
When you’re ready to take a deeper dive into the Google Workspace solution, we offer a number of different on-demand options, available on Google Cloud Skills Boost.
Here, you’ll find hands-on labs with instructions to complete a scenario in a specified amount of time. And, for those who want even more hands-on experience with related topics, there are quests that pull together several labs.
