Using MS Office in Google Drive

Session Description: Moving to Google Apps brings lots of benefits, but what about all your old Microsoft Office files? You may have years and years of valuable documents, slideshows, and spreadsheets that you still need to access, edit, and use. In this session we will show how to upload all your existing MS Office files to Drive, and then three options for using those files. First, converting the files into Google formats. Second, the Office Editing for Docs, Sheets & Slides Chrome extension to do light editing of the files online. Third, the MS Office Google Drive plugin and the AwesomeDrive extension to edit your files with Office while still storing them in Drive. Find the options that work best for you and see how MS Office and Google Drive can live in harmony!
