I love to collaborate and allow people to edit documents. However, no everyone knows how to edit a google drive word doc and why should they. You can avoid doing extra work fixing things on your google drive doc by helping collaborators learn how things are done correctly. Feel free to share the following tutorial on how to edit a google drive doc with your colleagues and friends.
