Quick Access Coming to Google Docs for G Suite Customers

Google has announced that the Quick Access feature will be rolling out to Google Docs for G Suite business and enterprise customers.  Functionally, it is very similar to the Quick Access feature that is found in all versions of Google Drive.  For Google Docs however, it is more AI driven based on Drive activity as well as the content of the files themselves.

Quick Access for Docs uses artificial intelligence to suggest relevant files based on signals like Drive activity and information in your documents, so you can work with the most up-to-date information and create new material quickly.

Google points out that for this feature to work, customers must have Google Cloud Search enabled on their domain.

Like other features of G Suite, Quick Access is something that can be enabled or disabled at the domain level and Google has provided plenty of documentation for Admins to determine if they want to roll it out to meet their organizations needs.
