Google announced a faster way to create Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides documents. Learn about this new shortcut and how to increase your productivity when using Google Apps.
- [Brad] Hey, welcome to another episode of Marketing Tips. I'm Brad Batesole. And today, I want to share with you an awesome productivity hack to make it faster than ever to generate new Google Slides, Docs, Forms, Sheets, and so on. It's as easy as simply going to the address bar of your browser and typing in docs.new. And just like that, Google is going to create a new Google Document for you. This works, as well, for say, sheets.new, which will then create a new Google spreadsheet or even slides.new, which will create a new presentation.
I have here the full list of the shortcuts for you. As you can see, there's a few for docs, forms, sheets, sites, and slides. And I assume that Google is going to continue adding new shortcuts for their entire product suite. Now, the dot new is an actual top-level domain name provided by Google, which means this'll work regardless of the browser that you're in. Thanks for checkin' in this week. I hope that this productivity hack is helping you as much as it's been helping me.
As always, I'd love to hear from you. So shoot me a tweet @bradbatesole or connect with me on LinkedIn.
