Google Docs and Microsoft Office Syncing – Soon!

Google Docs

Some wonderful news from Google today especially for those fans of various ways of backing up your genealogy data! Soon – and very soon – you’ll be able to have your Microsoft Office documents stored on your Google Docs account with a built in interface!

As stated in the post at the official Google Enterprise blog:

Users of Office 2003, 2007 and 2010 can sync their Office documents to the Google cloud, without ever leaving Office. Once synced, documents are backed-up, given a unique URL, and can be accessed from anywhere (including mobile devices) at any time through Google Docs. And because the files are stored in the cloud, people always have access to the current version.

Right now this feature is only available to Google Apps for Business customers but no doubt it will be available for most, if not all, Google Docs users. Stay tuned!
