Day 17 - Use the Template Gallery

Like Microsoft Office, Google Drive has a Template Gallery with a large variety of templates that can help you get your Document, Spreadsheet, Presentation, or Form started. Unfortunately, this great feature in Google Drive is a little hidden and takes a few clicks to discover.

  1. Create a new Document, Spreadsheet, Presentation, or Form
  2. Click the File menu, select "New" and click "From template"
  3. Click on the "Public Templates" tab at the top to view all of templates submitted to the Template Gallery
  4. Click the "Types" and "Categories" links on the left to narrow down the kinds of templates that are displayed
  5. If you see a template that you would like to take a closer look at, click the "Preview" link next to that template
  6. If you like the template and you would like to use it to create a new Document, click "Use this template". If you don't want to use the template, click the "Close this window" link to return to the Template Gallery
  7. When you use a template, a fresh copy of that template will be created in your Drive
