Explore for Google Docs

Google Explore

G-Suite now has added something new that helps to enhance and simplify the workflow in Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Explore is the new kid on the block of Google features, and it's very easy to use.

Getting Started with Explore

The Explore button can be found in the bottom right corner in Sheets, Docs, and Slides. Click on the Explore icon to use the feature.

Explore in Sheets

In Sheets, Explore will demystify analyzing data.
    • Formulas - You don't need to type in a formula, you just type in the question. For example, I wanted the sum of the column for Red. Here's one way to ask the question in Explore:
    • Charts and Graphs - Charts and Graphs are already created for you. Choose one and drag it into your sheet. From there you can modify it if needed.

Explore in Docs

In Docs, Make research a snap! Explore will assist you in suggesting images or related topics as well as relating the content of your document to other documents you own or researching web sources.

Explore in Slides

In Slides, Explore can help polish your presentation by suggesting different layouts and designs.
