Differences that matter

Highlighted differences between Google Docs and Craft

From docs to blocks

With Craft's block-based editor you can effortlessly switch between writing and styling to quickly share stunning, structured documents. You can easily add headings, tables, code, quotes, links, video, images and more to create engaging and detailed docs for any use case.

Docs with depth

Create cards and sub-pages inside your docs to arrange your thoughts, structure documentation or just keep things tidy. Link from one doc to another with backlinks and organize your documents in folders, spaces and teams so you can find what you need.

Editing on the go feels just as good

Craft's best-in-class mobile experience makes working on the go as easy and enjoyable as working at your desk. And offline support means you can catch up with your team's latest update or jot down your big ideas no matter where you are.

Seamlessly integrate with Google Services

Craft works better with Google Drive, Calendar, and Youtube than Google Docs do. Add Smart Links to Google Drive files to share important context, embed Youtube videos in your docs, and connect your Google Calendar to see and events right inside Craft, and take meeting notes with a click.
