A (Dot) New Way to Google

There are several ways to create a new Google file. You can do it using the plus sign in Google Drive… or start a new document from a current one using the File menu… or go to docs.google.com/create.

Now there is a super easy way to start a new Google file… and it’s (dot) new!

Want to make a new Google Doc? Open a new tab and enter doc.newdocs.new or document.new in the address bar.


How about a Google Sheet? Try sheet.new, sheets.new, or spreadsheet.new.

Need a quick Google Form? That’s form.new and forms.new. read more

Quickly make your Google Docs Quiz into a Google Form

Do you have a quiz or a test in a Google Doc, and you want to quickly move it to a Google Form?  You can do this with the Add-on called Doc to Form. 

Open up your quiz or test in gDocs, and select the Add-ons menu. If you don’t already have Doc to Form, go to Get Add-ons and install Doc to Form. Once it is installed, it will appear in your list of Add-ons. (You only need to do this once.) 











Go ahead and start it up by selecting Create Form from Doc. Here, a wizard will appear on the side of your page, and you need to follow the prompts.

Templates in Google Forms? Yes, please.

One of the best features of Google Forms is the ability to use templates to quickly create various types of forms. There are templates available for Education, Personal and Work.  To access the templates, you’ll want to connect to Google Forms through the http://forms.google.com URL.

Once you get there, you’ll see a few of the templates. To see all of them, you’ll need to click on the little arrow.


When you click the arrow, it may open a window of templates for your organization (which will probably be blank); just click on General to see all the templates.
