Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides are a great way to collaborate. If you don’t have an internet connection, you can’t work in real time with someone else. But you can work offline and save those changes once you have a connection again.

• Open Chrome and make sure you’re signed in with your Google account. Go to drive.google.com/drive/settings.
• Next to Offline, you will see a box to create, open, and edit your recent Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides files on this device while offline. Check the box.

• Turn on Available offline.
