We have been receiving a lot of interest from the Google App Marketplace. We have Single Sign-On enabled with the marketplace enabling anyone with a valid Google account to easily sign into KineticGlue. This kind of works well, as users get to access their emails and collaboration activities – the two predominant office tools that they use on a daily basis – from a single account.
Many of these users had asked if they can socialize Google Docs within KineticGlue – share and invite comments on their Google Docs.
This sounded like a very good idea. Google Apps, and especially Google Docs are the top most productivity tools used by small and medium businesses and there was no reason why we would not want to do it. So we released this integration late December 2011.
Now, users who sign-in through their Google App Marketplace account (or simply Google account) can create, share and open Google documents in KineticGlue.
People can view shared documents and comment on them. They can also edit the documents if they have permissions.
Users can manage all the documents that they have created and shared – not just Google docs – through the ‘Files’ section in their profile.
We believe this is going to make KineticGlue more useful for people using Google Docs extensively. We are ready to integrate with more Google Apps if our customers find it useful. Please let us know.
