Convert, Zip and Download: New Export Options for Google Docs

As of yesterday,  Google announced the “Convert, Zip and Download” feature in Google Docs.  The new features make it a simple two step process to pull down any and all the Google documents of your choosing (up to 500 MB), convert them to your preferred file types, and zip them up in a concrete package you can download and save to your desktop. Before this feature was enabled docs had to be downloaded one at a time.

On the home page just  select the files you wish to download, click the “More actions” tab, and select “Export.” You then will be be guided through a process to  convert your files in various  formats, such as PDF, .xls, and .doc.The files are bundled into a .zip format.


This should be a great feature for educators or businesses who need to collect data from several sources quickly and easily all at once.
