Did you know you can back up your Lava.net account? With Backupify, you can quickly and easily set up a free account and begin backing up your mail in about 3 to 5 minutes. Take a look.
Your mail, docs, contacts, and calendar events are actually pretty safe in the cloud. Left on its own, it’s likely that it will remain there, uninterrupted, for the duration of the account’s life cycle. So why would we need a back-up of our mail, documents, etc.?
Two words: user errors.
We’ve all done it before, accidentally deleting an important calendar events, emails or documents. Its not uncommon, and a lot of times, that data can be recovered. But for those instances where recovery is not possible, having a backup isn’t such a bad idea.
In Docs, a lot of attention gets paid to the word processing and spreadsheet applications, but you don’t see as much attention paid to drawings and presentations; the patches for these two applications tend to get overlooked.
Improvements to the existing presentation software in docs first rolled out in October 2011, adding new features to enhance your presentation by including
Transitions to move between slides with simple fades or spicier 3D effects
Animations to add emphasis or to make your slides more playful
New themes to create beautiful presentations with distinct visual styles
Drawings to build new designs, layouts, and flowcharts within a presentation
Rich tables with merged cells and more options for adding style to your data
To use these features, click on the gear icon in your document list, and select Document settings. Then, from the editing tab, check the box to “Create new presentations using the latest version of the presentation editor.”
Doc’s presentations are useful and easy to use. You can set up a simple presentation in a few minutes using the templates provided. Slides templates as well as design themes will help create a professional look to your presentation. Controls make it easy to enhance your presentation with media.
