      lynjensen Like Google Docs, Nuclino allows users to collaborate on documents in real time, but instead of getting lost in folders, in Nuclino these documents are structured in a visual and easy-to-navigate way. It's like if every Trello card had its own Google Doc.

      stephenbarrow895 It's very similar to Google Docs but much better organized. You can use internal links to structure your docs like a website or a wiki, so it's easy to navigate.

      PavlinaKellerova Does everything Google Docs can, and more. It's like a wiki made up of interconnected Google Docs. My company has recently started using it as an internal knowledge base and we're quite happy with it. Lucky to have discovered it.

      Way easier to find documents and to stay up to date with what your team mates have been working on. It's very transparent and all the team can simply access the knowledge accumulated.

    4. Etherpad is a highly customizable Open Source online editor providing collaborative editing in really real-time.
      Most users think Etherpad is a great alternative to Google Docs.
    5. Dropbox Paper is more than a doc—it’s a workspace that brings creation and coordination together in one place.
      Dropbox Paper vs Google Docs opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Dropbox Paper is a great alternative to Google Docs.
      Paper is faster and easier to use than Google docs. Docs becomes very slow to load when dealing with long documents, and that's where Paper really outshines it. Paper does have a comparatively limited feature set, but I think it does include the real necessities and the things it leaves are not really missed for me.
