Our response to your Product Ideas

Recently we opened our Product Ideas page to gather your feedback about what you’d like to see next in Google Docs. Over a two-week period, nearly 4,000 of you participated, submitting close to 2,000 ideas and casting over 50,000 votes.

Our request for feedback was designed to help us better prioritize the features you want most in Google Docs. We'll be sure to let you know as we roll out new features based on your valuable input. Here are just a few of the top ideas that we’re prioritizing:
  • Add better header and footer functionality
  • Make Google Docs available offline
  • Create vertical merge in spreadsheets
There were many other great ideas - from making Google Docs available as attachments in Gmail to allowing the use of Google Fonts across all Google Docs tools. While we can’t get started on these requests just yet, we’ll be sure to keep them in mind for future improvements.

Thanks to all who participated in our Product Ideas page! We enjoyed reading your product suggestions and look forward to sharing our progress as we move forward with the your ideas.

Share your Google Docs product ideas with our team

(Cross-posted to the Enterprise blog)

You make Google products what they are -- and the feedback you share with us every day helps shape the future of our products. We’re always listening to your requests via blogs, Twitter, our forum, and other channels, and for the next two weeks, we’re bringing back a more structured way to get your input by opening up our Product Ideas page.

On this page, you can submit your ideas, read other users’ suggestions, and vote up your favorites. We’ll use the top ideas to help us prioritize our development in the coming months. After the two-week period, we'll follow up with a blog post summarizing the results. While we may not work on all of the top ideas immediately, we’ll let you know which of the ideas we’re working on.

We hope you’ll use this as an opportunity to help us prioritize the features that are important to you -- for your business, in the classroom, or at home. Start submitting your ideas, big or small -- we look forward to hearing what you have to say!

Note: We’re specifically looking to hear your product ideas and suggestions. If you’re seeking help, please post your support questions to the Help Forum. Off topic submissions may be removed.
