Google Keep is a great tool for project management, for keeping tabs on your travel plans, and for saving quick voice memos. At its core, it’s a super simple app that can be adapted for a variety of uses. But in its simplest form, Google Keep is great for making lists.
You can also take your ideas and notes from Keep and easily add them to Docs for easier brainstorming.
Get started by recording your notes, lists and drawings in Keep on Android, iOS, Chrome or the web. While in Docs on the web, access the Keep notepad via the Tools menu. Your Keep notes will appear in a side panel within Docs.
Here are a few ways you can now work better with the integration between Keep and Docs:
- Drag your notes from Keep directly into your work documents
- Easily search your notes in Keep while in Docs to find the information you need to complete your project
- Add a new note in the Keep notepad or select text from inside of your document and easily add it to a new note (just right click and select “Save to Keep notepad”). When you open that note in Keep, we’ll include a link back to the source document so you can always refer back to it.
Use Keep to capture your ideas and thoughts wherever you are, whenever inspiration strikes. And now, quickly turn those thoughts into action — right in Docs.
