Force a Copy!

Here's a quick Friday tip that will save you some time!! 

About a month ago I stumbled across a Google Chrome Extension that has CHANGED MY LIFE!!!!  Yes, it's THAT dramatic!!! 

Follow me for a've all been here.  You've created a Google Doc, Sheets or Slides and you need to share it with someone but force them to make a copy of it.  In the past you've had to take the shared link, add it to a new browser, delete the ending and add the word "copy" to the end the link.  You then share that link with whoever you want to be able to make a copy of the awesomeness that you want to share.  Are you with me?

No longer do you have to do allllll of that!  Go to your Chrome Webstore and download: "Ed Tech Heroes Force Copy."

Now, all you have to do is this....When you've created your Doc, Sheets, or Slides and you're ready to share it with people to make a copy, simply click on the extension in your tool bar and BAM!  It does it for you!!!  You just click on "copy" to get the link that you need and share that with your peeps!

TOTAL TIME SAVER!!!  Trust me on this one, peeps!  You NEED this extension in your life!  Have you found any cool extensions lately?  Share them out! 

Have an awesome weekend!
