  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

  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.
