What preposition is most suitable referring to the verb add and the object Google Docs?

I've just added an essay in, into or on the Google Docs?

    As an aside, Google Docs is a proper name, so you would say "in/into/on Google Docs", not "the Google Docs". – stangdon Aug 30 '18 at 18:59

to add something to something

as in a collection of documents or a database of documents

    I don't think that really applies here. Google Docs is the proper name of a site, not literally a collection of documents. – stangdon Aug 30 '18 at 19:00
  • I agree with stangdon. I can see how you might talk about adding something to your doc(ument)s, but that's not how Google Docs is really used. But I guess it's not really wrong either because one might construe it as a bunch of documents. At any rate, you usually upload a document/whatever to your Google Drive – I'd stick to that phrasing. – userr2684291 Aug 30 '18 at 19:32
  • @stangdon I was not commenting on Google Docs per se. Perhaps you should address the OP. Files are uploaded to Google Docs and then converted, as I see it. – Lambie Jan 16 at 18:41
