A New Great Feature for Google Drive Users

November 16, 2016
Google introduced today a new feature for G Suite (formerly Google Apps for Work). The new custom template feature allows users to submit and share custom template files for Docs, Sheets, forms and Slides. When submitted to shared template galleries, other users (e,g co-workers) can use these custom templates and adapt them the way they want. Admins in G Suite for Education have the right to pre-approve and limit who can submit custom templates.
You can use the custom template gallery if your Google Account is through work or school. This is how to see your work or school templates:
