Force a copy of a file in Google

This feature in Google is amazing and this can help you share what you have created, yet not allow anyone to change your work.

Below you will see a 1 minute YouTube video explanation as well as written directions below. The link is live so you can click on it and see how it works.



Remember when you share - make sure of a few things.

  1. Select Share
  2. Select Advanced (bottom right)
  3. Change link sharing to either Public on the Web or Anyone with the link
  4. When you are still on the file - check out the URL and change whatever is written directly after the last / to COPY.

Example -

As always, any questions please let me know!
