Give Official Google Docs Team Feedback on the Missing Citation Tool!

What the Cite Tool bank in #GoogleDocs? Give feedback now! | @EdTechnocation #GoogleEDU
I recently posted about the missing Citation tool in the new Explore for Google Docs and shared some alternative options (see How to Create Citations without the Research Tool). I also shared a way to let the Docs Team know your disappointment over the missing Citation Tool. The Docs Team was listening and they want more feedback! Read on to learn how you can participate in an official Google Docs Team feedback survey.


The following message was shared with G Suite domain admins on October 17, 2016:

Update - October 17th, 2016: Based on customer feedback, we are adding education-specific capabilities to the Explore tool in Google Docs before rolling it out to Google for Education (EDU) domains on Scheduled release. Please note that this will not impact the launch of Explore in Docs to EDU and non-EDU customers on Rapid release, for whom the rollout has already completed, or to non-EDU customers on Scheduled release, for whom the gradual rollout has already begun. It also will not impact the launch of Explore in Google Sheets and Slides, which is continuing as communicated.

The Google Docs Team has heard our cries and are looking for more feedback on how teachers and students used the Citation Tool in the previous Research Tool and how you might use it in the new Explore. Fill out the official form below.
