Check out the 2 min. video that shows you how to setup offline sync so you can work on your Drive Docs even if you are not connected to the Internet.

Pretty cool feature. Note that when you turn on offline editing, your computer then appears to save the cloud docs locally, thereby taking up some hard disk space on your computer.

If you are getting HOA Events added to your calendar and you have no idea why, then check your calendar settings.

This has been a concern for many years, and if you don't know where to adjust the settings, it can get quite bothersome.

(1) Go to your Google Calendar and click the "settings" Gear Icon.
(2) Then click on the "Settings" menu choice.

(3 & 4) Scroll down until you see the section re. Events shown in the image here and say "No" to both options. You'll be adjusting:
1. Show events you have declined
2. Automatically add invitations to my calendar

(5) Save your changes.

This will adjust things so that only the Events you say "Yes" or "Maybe" to end up on your calendar (as it should be IMO).

We'll be hosting a public HOA (Hangout on Air) Event on Feb. 5, 2015 that covers who gets alerts, invites & notifications to HOA Events. Hope you can join us... here's the link:

If you are interested in getting going with Hangouts & Hangouts on Air, here is a great place to start:
