You’ve probably clicked a link to a Google Docs, Slides, Sheets, or Drawings file and had to click a Make a Copy button before proceeding. This method of sharing forces a user to make a copy of the original, and the copy is now fully owned by the user and placed in her Google Drive. Sharing a file this way is super handy for when you have created a document in G Suite and want students to have their very own copy. Students can fill in blanks, finish a slideshow, label a drawing, annotate text, or complete some task in their own document (and then possibly share it back with the teacher). Sharing this way is also useful for sharing templates with other teachers. They can simply click to make their own copy and customize it without affecting your original. Creating a Make a Copy link to a Google document is a hidden feature–it’s not in the document’s menu. Instead, you change the /edit in the URL to /copy while keeping everything else the same. Share the link online, as a QR code, on a website, through a shortened links, in another document, in an social media post—however you get links to others.
