The Google Slides should be able to be available in a "read-only" format, even if they are downloaded. Currently, when you share a slide, it can be edited or even downloaded and edited. We'd prefer it if there was a way to protect them from being tampered with. The user interface, especially on Google Drive, could be better.

Compared to Office 365, you lose many functionalities. For Example, G Suites cannot share contacts between users. With Office, particularly with Outlook, people are not using labels but folders. They tend to create folders in folders, and this fails the mailbox migration. When migrating, we were using iMac migration and people were using special characters in their subfolders. If you use a name with a special character like a slash in the folder, it will crash the migration, with no warning. There is no pre-warning or anything to tell you that if you use characters in a file name that it will crash the migration. There should be some kind of warning, notification, or awareness regarding bad practices. There should be a check of the account that you have to migrate that tells you if the Unicode Encoding of the subfolders is valid, and that bad names won't work. To find the webpage information regarding the migration with email servers, you have to search the website documentation to locate it. This information should be on the front page. When you migrate with Gmail, there is a lot of information with different functions of what we lost and what we will get. Office or iMaps and several other service line products are displayed as part of it. This section is large and should be in the frontline of the documentation. In the search, whenever you type migration with Gmail or G Suite, it should be on the first page. In the next release, personal contact sharing should be included. With Google, you can share documentation, presentation links, almost everything, but not contacts.

Despite being an excellent platform, I would very much like Google Docs to be more compatible with Microsoft Word.

It takes a long time to import the data from G Suite into another platform. Also, the overall price per user is too high.

I have had issues with my Google Address Book. I have an address book and it is available to everyone but I cannot add additional users. In Microsoft Outlook, I could easily share certain contacts with other members of my team but I cannot do so on G Suite. Also, 90% of the world is still using MS Outlook, so more users need to convert to the G Suite side.

I need more integration features in both Google Apps for Business and Skype for Business. There are certain office productivity features which need to be integrated in them. Also, if possible, some more useful features could be added, and the performance speed could be improved when the internet connection is slow.
