Enabling Org Mode Exporting to ODT
The ODT exporter relies on the zip program to create the final output. Check the availability of this program before proceeding further.
But it does not really tell you what
zip really is. I am assuming its whatever is in my $PATH on OS X, but I can’t really be too sure.

Also, no where in the docs does it tell you how to enable ODT exporting. In order to be able to export to ODT like you would export to any other format using the
C-c C-e export menu, you need to explicitly enable
ox-odt somewhere in your org-mode configuration file. Check out my .emacs.d repo for an example, but essentially adding this somewhere in your startup scripts should do the trick:
;; Load ODT backend to allow for exporting to open document format. (require 'ox-odt)
Exporting to ODT
C-c C-e o o. Opening up this file in LibreOffice or OpenOffice should show you a really nice representation of whatever you just wrote. The best part about this method is that you get a table of contents, and section numbering for free. In addition, you do not have to keep track of the numbers yourself, if you need to move stuff around or add new sections then org mode export will automatically update the numbering for you. Besides being able to export to ODT, org-mode also supports exporting to about a dozen other formats. If you have LaTeX and pandoc installed then the sky is truly the limit.
Uploading to Google Docs
