Save Time with Google Docs Templates.

Ever spent more time formatting a document than actually adding content to it? Eliminating that issue one of the beauties of Google Drive.

Google Drive offers a service called Google Docs Templates. It is a gallery of document templates that you can choose from and use to create documents in your Google Drive. For the business world, it offers templates for sales invoices, progress reports, time sheets, gas mileage and much more. They’re just a few clicks and a search button away.

To get started with Google Docs Templates

First, access your Google Drive by logging into your Google account or Tnet Mail and clicking Drive in the menu across the top of the window.

When you have reached your Drive, click the red Create button. In the drop-down menu, choose From template.

Create from template

A new window will appear. You are now in the template gallery. From there, click on the Public Templates tab.

Public Templates and Search Bar

After you have selected Public Templates, you can use the search bar at the top to find a template for the document you would like to create. You can also choose to sort your results by hottest, most users, or highest rating by using the menu on the left of the screen. You can narrow your results by document type or subject category.

When you have found the template you need,  click Use this template. A new window with the document will appear. To change the name of the document, click on the document title and type in the new name.

To locate a previously used template

Return to the template gallery. This time, instead of choosing the Public Templates tab, click on Templates I’ve used. The gallery will display your 20 most recently used templates.
