slash edit to slash copy

A feature of the old Google spreadsheets was to be able to append &newcopy to the end of the URL. What this would do is when you share a view only link with a student, it would prompt the student to make a copy. This is a feature I used all the time with students and sharing templates with colleagues. Unfortunately this feature no longer works with the new Google Sheets.

/copy

New to Google Docs is now the ability to replace the /edit at the end of the URL and replace it with /copy. This has the same functionality that the old feature had.
Copy a Google Doc


(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ALL GOOGLE DOCUMENTS

The /copy works with ALL types of documents. Sheets, Documents, Slides, Draw!! 

Replace /edit with /copy

In the URL up in the address bar delete the /edit at the end of the link. For a spreadsheet you will ALSO delete the #gid=#### to the right of the /edit. Instead type /copy

Example

The URL on this Google Drawing is
https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1pR1dKjOUXZomftAmdDe383jbDNKTcO9h-dRe7rgE7w0/edit

DELETE the /edit and replace with /copy

https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1pR1dKjOUXZomftAmdDe383jbDNKTcO9h-dRe7rgE7w0/copy

Notice when you click on the link that it prompts you to make a copy of the drawing.

Example

The URL on this Google Sheets spreadsheet is
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1RWhBCSuY0qhNoc42Yh6vtxKNp6TcM
mF_KyXKztntujA/edit#gid=3

DELETE the /edt#gid=3 and replace with /copy
Note that your #gid= will be followed with a different number than 3, that number refers to the tab ID.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1RWhBCSuY0qhNoc42Yh6vtxKNp6TcM
mF_KyXKztntujA/copy

Notice when you click on the link that it prompts you to make a copy of the spreadsheet.
