Tuesday Tip! Accessing G Suite Tools
In our district we are fortunate to have a Dashboard App which allows us to access all our favorites from one place. But what happens when that Dashboard App is not accessible. At first we sort of flounder like when the electrical power goes out and we still turn on the light switch anyway. Next, we look to our Bookmarks and hope we have saved some of our favorites there.
There is an easy way to access our favorite G Suite tools when this happens. For example, to access your Google Drive where all your files are stored in G Suite, simply enter the following into the omnibar: drive.google.com
You may have to log in to your account by entering your username and password or your Gmail address, and you may want to sign in to Chrome as well.
If you would prefer to go straight to a different G Suite tool, access is very similar:
For Classroom – classroom.google.com
For Docs – docs.google.com
For Drawings – drawings.google.com
For Forms – forms.google.com
For My Maps – mymaps.google.com
For Sheets – sheets.google.com
For Sites – sites.google.com
For Slides – slides.google.com
So, don’t just shut down when it seems all systems are not on go, look for another access point and keep rolling along!
