However, a lot has changed in the world of technology in the past decade, since Google Docs came into the picture. When Google started offering real-time document editing and collaboration, it was a game-changer for a lot of remote teams who previously collaborated on work using a long chain of emails. Google solved the problem of lost information stuck in email attachments.
However, today’s fast-paced, digitally inclined systems we incorporate in our daily lives need to be versatile, robust and should not only match our digital workflow but also surpass it for added efficiency. That is why we created Bit, the collaboration tool everyone expects in our digital world.
An introduction to Bit: The Future Of Documents!
Bit is unique and will change the way you and your team think about collaborating and sharing information with your colleagues. Bit’s platform helps you create documents of the future. Instead of relying on plain text and images to communicate, Bit helps you add rich media like YouTube videos, Google Docs, One Drive Excel Spreadsheets, GIFs, Tweets, and much more. Basically, anything on the internet with a link can be shared and Bit will automatically turn it into visual interactive content.
Bit allows teams to create workplace documents like- project proposals, sales decks, training documents, how-to guides, company policies, process documentation, media kits, fact sheets, competitive research, case studies, e-books, etc. and provides a safe and robust place to store these documents. If you want to send these documents to external partners, clients, customers or prospects, you can even track them to get intelligent engagement insights.
Bit’s documents are smart enough to read any weblink and automatically transform that link into visual content. Just enter any web link on a blank line and hit enter. Bam! The content will show up beautifully.
If you are a long time Google Docs user and have a lot of your workplace documents written in Google Docs, simply copy the URL of the page, and paste it onto a blank line inside a Bit document. And voila! You have a Google Doc embedded inside a Bit document! No more dealing with messy iFrame/embed code! Embed Google Docs inside a document in seconds!
Now you may be wondering why the heck do I need to do that? Well often times we are sharing various types of content and our emails are filled with links and attachments along with directions and explanations for our audiences. Bit helps clean up that communication, whether you’re sharing knowledge or collaborating and allows one central place to showcase that information in a professional and visual way.
Follow these simple steps to add Google Doc cloud files or any weblink into your Smart Bit Documents:
1. Click the share button for your Google Docs weblink.
2. Customize your shareable link. We recommend that you choose ‘Anyone with the Link can View.’ You can do so through the drop-down menu above the shareable link or by clicking on the ‘Advanced’ button on the bottom right corner.
3. Copy the Google Docs shareable link.
4. Go to Bit.ai and paste the Google Docs weblink on a blank line and hit enter.
5. Bit will automatically fetch the Google Docs and display it like this.
Important: Any changes made to this Google Doc will be reflected in your Bit document rich embed.
