Google Apps Updates - April/May

Being busy with the 2016 Faculty Technology Institute, we are a bit delayed in our follow-up to the inaugural LC Google Apps Update. Better late than never! Here are some of the new and (hopefully) useful features that have appeared on our Google Apps domain in the last couple months. Please note that some features such as Reminders for Google Calendar or Offline Access for Google Docs have been announced, but are either not yet available or not enabled on our domain. We will update our users via social media or LC Google Updates as these features become available.
