To allow people on a team to write a single document together (in realtime or asynchronously) online would be a great addition to freedcamp.
One option to make this work could be to integrate etherpad, opt. with a few related plugins (images, videos and bookmarks are quite usefull): http://etherpad.org/ (or with video: https://v.etherpad.org/)
Open office is a collaborative software integrated into platforms similar to freedcamp. It`s also similar to google docs: there are spreadsheets, text docuemtns, presentations, etc. Whether open office or something else, teams do need options to work on the same document simultaneously! thanks!

You guys have wiki but I suggest you build something like notejoy where we can create, edit and share notes in freedcamp itself with markdown support.
You can go through the link here for notejoy https://notejoy.com/
I'd like to have place to drop down an indea and develop it in the future -- edit idea description with tracking who edited this part -- some version management.
1) I have an idea but no time to consider all details
2) in next days multiple persons add ideas, comments, questions and ansvers (preferable as in the mail answers rather than as separate comments on forum)
3) we elaborate solution project from the initial idea
4) split it into a taks with estimation of effort (time, resources)
5) decide that we want to deploy it -- move whole project or subset of tasks into ToDo list, then InProceeding, QualityCheck and so on
For example, our group wants to work on a Terms of Reference as a group. From what I can tell we must edit on our own computer and then save and upload. Is it possible to live-edit? If not, yes please! :)
It would be nice to have this "Start A Doc" feature like what is in Basecamp. It would allow users to not only upload docs but actually create, manage and share them right within the Freedcamp project. Very handy for notation, etc.
Similar to working with a project on Google Drive, Allow users to work on the same project or document remotely at the same time.

Yes google docs integration is something we would love to have soon.

Something like Google Docs would be great! Maybe there is a way to use Google Docs as a plugin.

what kind of editing abilities for what kind of files?
And ability to group them.
... by various users, whilst keeping track of versions(changes made).
