Google Docs Adds Over 300 New Templates

Google Docs Templates

Google Docs recently added over 300 templates for a variety of business documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. Need templates for a calendar, a letter, a resume, or even Avery-compatible labels? You're good to go.

My favorites are in the eclectic "Miscellaneous" section, where you'll find templates for athletes, parents, wedding or event planners, wine nerds, screenwriters -- even "animal guardians".

Cool new resource and a neat idea. Yet another reason for MS Office to keep an eye on its dwindling lunch.

I'm looking forward to spending some time with these, because I'm a huge GDocs nerd. Can't wait until you can edit Google Documents via your iPhone. That's when the game really changes.

@Jensen -

You could try Zoho. Also try the forums for support.

That said, I'm a HUGE Google Docs fan myself (full disclusure, my company makes two products that integrate with GDocs, so I have stake in GDocs success). I can't say I've had any problems that you discribe and I think I must have thousands of docs in my account.

The terrible thing about me and products I love is every time they come out with something, my thinking is "But, what if it could do ...". In this case I'm hoping this means I'll be able to create templates through the API soon.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
