In addition to the Drive web app, Google recently created a web interface for each of their primary Drive apps:
Using these interfaces allows the user to see all of the files that are stored in their Google Drive that can be accessed by the particular app. For example, navigating to slides.google.com will show all of the Google Slides files stored in your Drive, as well as any presentations formatted for Microsoft PowerPoint that the Slides app can read.
At the top of the interface will be displayed a list of templates provided by Google for users to start with; why re-invent the wheel if you don’t have to, right? Clicking on the TEMPLATE GALLERY link in the top-right corner of the window will expand the bar to reveal additional available templates.
Now, Google has added the ability for G Suite for Education and Work users to use and upload their own artifacts to the TEMPLATE GALLERY under a tab for their organization.
- Navigate to one of the app web interfaces listed above.
- Click on the TEMPLATE GALLERY button in the top-right corner of the page.
- At the top-left there should now be two tabs: GENERAL and YOUR ORGANIZATION NAME. Click on the latter.
- Templates that have already been contributed to the gallery will now be displayed. Use the SUBMIT TEMPLATE button in the top-right corner of the page to upload and share your own template(s).
NOTE: If you do not see the new galleries, then this feature may have been disabled. Contact your Google Admin about requesting access to the new galleries and template submission option. For more information, please refer to this post on the G Suite Updates blog.
