On Monday morning I was preparing to give a presentation using Google Docs, Google Docs went down. As my friend Greg Kulowiec noted, “teachers all over the East Coast were panicking.” Fortunately for me an many others Google Docs came back within about twenty minutes. It was during Monday’s Google Docs outage that I was reminded of the Google Apps Status Dashboard. The Google Apps Status Dashboard is a grid of Google Apps products and they’re current status of service outages and service disruptions. The next time you’re wondering if a Google Apps product is down for everyone or just you, check the Status Dashboard.
