Chrome: Heavy Google Docs users know it can be a pain when you get an email with an attachment—even if it’s in Gmail—and want to save it in Google Docs for later. You have to view the attachment first, and then click to save it in Google Docs, and even then only if it’s one of a few file types. With the Gmail Attachments to Docs extension for Chrome, saving one or all of your attachments is as easy as clicking one link.
Gmail Attachments to Docs is very simple— it inserts a link next to the attachment in Gmail to “Save to Docs,” in between View and Download. When you click, it avoids you having to open the attachment before saving it to Google Docs for the account you’re logged in to. If you work in Google Docs frequently and don’t want to open a bunch of tabs just to save the documents you’ve received, or you don’t want to leave your mail just to keep a copy of the documents someone sent you, this extension can be a real time saver. Have a different method of doing the same thing? Let us know in the comments below.
