Video: How to Create and Use Templates in Google Docs

I'm really big on time saving and efficiency. Templates are a way to accomplish tasks in a way that's quick and easy. Templates are also useful to share with your assistants or collaborators so everyone is on the same page. This video also covers information on how to locate pre-made templates.

About submitting templates:
When you submit a template to the public gallery, anyone will be able to use it by creating a copy of their own.
By submitting a template, you agree to let anyone use the content and styles that you created. Please make sure that you own the rights to distribute the content in your template.

After a template is submitted, any changes you make to it will show in the template gallery immediately. Please make changes with care!

Need Privacy?
To get around the privacy issue, create your own template by following the video above and call it blank_template (where <blank> is the name you give your template). Don't upload it to the templates gallery. Create a templates folder and share the entire folder or individual templates with those folks you want to use them.
