Group Email Accounts
For Example: You are planning a gathering and you are planning to use Evite - A great free invitation response system. You send out the invite and your guests can respond if they will be attending, bringing a guest, even what dish they are bringing. However sites like this rely on each guest having their own personal email address. Each email the system sends is customized for each email address, this is how the system keeps track of who has responded.
If you want to invite a group of people to your event and you do not want a response and you are using an outside system, then the group email accounts will work fine.
A few of the response system can use group email accounts, however those are very rare. If you are planning to use a system like evite and you would like an email list of the members of a group email, please email me and I'll send you the list.

How do I Convert Word and Excel Files to Google Docs and Sheets?
- Upload the Microsoft Word or Excel file you want to convert to Google Docs or Google Sheets.
- Once uploaded, double click the file and a window will appear with a preview of the document.
- At the top of the window, you will see the option to "Open" with Google Docs or Google Sheets. Your file has successfully converted!
You can also see it in action in the video below.
Keep in mind that in Docs, text will convert seamlessly. However, if your Word file contains elaborate tables and a lot of graphics, it may not look the same in a Google Doc.
