Get a jump start with templates

Save time and avoid errors by using templates in Docs. You can choose an existing template for your proposal or create your own. Share the template with your team—any changes that people make to the original update automatically.

Search and add content without leaving your proposal

Need to research or cite sources for your proposal? Quickly find citations and other resources without leaving your proposal using the built-in Explore tool. Then, filter your search results to pinpoint specific types of information, such as images or Drive files.

Enhance your documents with visuals

If you’re creating a complex proposal, add images to help get your message across. There’s no need to use additional software or leave your document—just add and edit images directly in Docs.

Make changes to proposals on the go

Edit proposals on your phone or tablet with the Docs app. Whether you’re on the way to the airport or visiting a customer, it’s easy to update your proposals when you’re away from your desk. Any changes you make automatically sync to all your devices, so you’re always up to date. Even better, if you’re in a rush, type with your voice to quickly put words on a page.

Make proposals easier to read

To keep your work organized, Docs creates outlines for you automatically. To improve that organization further, add heading styles, bulleted lists, and more. Readers can see what your proposal covers at a glance and quickly jump to the section they need.

Keep your drafts together

In the past, you might have kept multiple drafts of your files in case you needed to refer to them or switch to earlier versions. Docs keeps all your drafts in one file, and you can easily look at or restore earlier versions with the revision history. So don’t worry about making big edits—if you change your mind, you can always go back.

Collaborate on proposals in real time

Want input from various teams when creating your proposal? Draft a proposal in Docs with key objectives and project milestones. Then, share the proposal with your team so everyone can create content simultaneously, see edits in real time, and provide feedback.

Track changes to documents faster

When you’re collaborating on a document, you’ll want to see what changes have been made since you last worked on it. With Docs, you can instantly see what’s changed, who changed it, and when. If you need to revert to an earlier version of your document, use the revision history.

Set expiration dates on confidential proposals

If you’re sending proposals to outside clients or agencies, you might want to restrict their access after any projects are complete. Set an expiration date on files so they can’t view them once the project ends.

Share proposals on a team site

Want to share a draft proposal with your team? Create an internal team website in Sites and add your proposals there. You can access the site at any time, from any device. Changes you make in Docs automatically appear on the team site, too.
