Google Keep is Now a G Suite Core Service

posted Mar 15, 2017, 5:39 AM by Amanda Hudeck

Google Keep helps you capture thoughts, ideas, action items, and more in one place. Google Keep has been added to the G Suite core services in U-M Google. Keep is accessible in Google Docs, so you can easily revisit and re-purpose your notes. Keep has the same technical support and service level commitments as any other core service.

To use Google Keep, select Keep notepad from the Tools menu in Docs to pull up a sidebar containing your notes from Keep (and the option to search them). You can edit those notes and drag-and-drop them into your document.

If you’re inspired by the content already in your doc, you can create a new note by highlighting the relevant text, right-clicking, and selecting Save to Keep notepad. Or, if you simply want to create a new note with brand-new content, you can enter a prompt in the Take a note... box in the notepad. All notes you create while in a document will be added to a “related” section within the sidebar. When you view those notes in Keep, they include a link back to the document in which they were created.
