Some small updates bring massive increases in usability, today’s update to Google Docs, Sheets and Slides certainly fits that criteria for me. By adding the seemingly simple option to choose which folder you can save a copy of a Doc in Google Drive, has significantly improved my Google Drive workflow and file management.
Before the update anytime you clicked “Make a copy” it would save by default to the root of your My Drive. Following today’s update you can now choose where it will save to from anywhere in your Google drive file structure, shared folders and even to your ‘starred’ directory.
This is one of those “I can’t believe it wasn’t already a part of Google Drive” features. But I for one will not be looking the proverbial gift horse in the mouth. The update is live for you now and should be available to everyone in the coming days.
