Forced to Copy a Google Doc, Spreadsheet or Slide? Preview it First!



+Kasey Bell tells us in great detail how to Force Users to Make a Copy of a Google Doc! here. Simply replace "edit" at the end of the URL with "copy". 

Most of the time I like to look at a document before I copy it. So I simply reverse the process when the "Copy Document" request pops up.

Here's a "Copy document" screenshot from Shannon Long's tutorial in her blog technology rocks. seriously (great title!).


Changing "copy" to "edit" creates a "View only" version, not an editable version as one might think. 

Obvious? Sometimes the obvious looks me right in the face for a very long time. :) Thought I'd share this little tip with those of you who also sometimes overlook the obvious.
