How to Set a Google Document Link That Forces Each User to Make a Copy


  1. When finishing a Google Document, go to the blue share square
  2. Change the link permission to Anyone with the link can View
  3. Do not copy this link. It’s not the one you want
  4. Go to the link at the top of your document and find the word “edit” in the link
  5. Erase the word “edit” and change it to say “copy”
  6. Copy the entire new link
  7. Paste it in a new window or tab to test it.
    Here is an example:

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mg7QbBeGTG5ExWrQUti8qVHWMzopHXziWh216996YVQ/copy
  8. When another person/student uses the link and clicks the blue Make a Copy button, it will automatically save their copy into their Drive.
