Google Docs Introduces Linkable Headlines for Easier Navigation
Google has introduced a new feature in Google Docs called linkable headlines, which lets users create links to specific headings in their documents—making it simpler to share and navigate lengthy documents and aiding collaboration.
If you collaborate with others on a document, you can use this feature to create links to specific sections for easy reference during discussions.
Here’s how to use the linkable headlines feature: Open a Google Doc on the web and add a heading by typing content and setting it to “Heading 1.” Right-click the title and click the “Copy heading link” button. Then paste the link wherever needed.
This feature is gradually rolling out to some users and is expected to be available for all users in the next few weeks. It will be accessible to various Google Workspace plans, including Essentials, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Starter, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Essentials Plus, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Plus, the Teaching and Learning Upgrade, and Nonprofits customers.
Furthermore, Google has introduced several additional enhancements to its services. Notably, users of iOS devices can now seamlessly insert copied HTML elements into their documents. This feature enhances the integration of external content, streamlining document creation.
Moreover, Google has simplified file management for shared drives by enabling users to clear the entire trash folder quickly. Eliminates the need for manual deletion and contributes to efficient organization.
However, it’s essential to be aware that files and folders in the Trash undergo permanent deletion after 30 days, emphasizing the need for prudent file management practices.
These updates aim to improve document collaboration, ease of use, and overall user experience within the Google ecosystem.
