3 Ways to Get More Out of Your Links on Google Docs

Hyperlinks have been around since the dawn of the Internet; however, are you getting the most out of your Hyperlinks and Google Docs? Here are three ideas on getting the most out of a powerful connection tool.

Check out my video or text below:





Idea # 1 - Do a Search 

Did you know that you can do a search for a website, document, or bookmark in Google Docs? When you are adding a link, Google will suggest results or you can do a simple good search from the Insert Link window.



Idea # 2 - Use Headings and Bookmarks

Need a way to link to specific locations in your document? There are several different options.

Headings are not only a great way to organize content in your document, but also a great way to navigate through your document. If you change your text to the heading format, you can navigate using the document outline pane or you can directly link to headings using the Insert Link function.



Bookmarks are another helpful feature for linking to specific locations in your document. Check out my video for more!


Idea # 3 - Preview a Google Slide Presentation

With the emphasis on remote learning, this could be a helpful way of sharing an agenda and sharing a picture-in-picture preview of a Google Slide presentation. This is only currently available for the owner of the document but provides you with the ability to work with multiple items on the same screen at once.
