Last year, with the.new domain, Google launched a very easy way to generate blank docs, sheets, and slides. Your other signed-in accounts, including your job or college G Suite, are now supported by the Google docs.new shortcut.
Docs.new will open a blank Google Doc in your address bar, with sheets.new, slides.new. Sites.new, forms.new and website.new also work to open G Suite applications.
The fresh document would be part of the first Google Account entered into your browser before today. That is the “default,” with the account order visible by pressing the avatar profile in any Google service’s top-right corner.
Now you can add a number to the docs.new shortcut to transfer possession of the document to another account. For instance, docs.new/1 would create the file in my personal account if I first logged into Gmail. If the second account with which I am signed is from @androidark.com, docs.new/2 will save to the Drive job.
You can sign in to various Google accounts and the shortcut amount will still work. Google imagines that moving between private, college, and job accounts will be a very helpful trick.
Google’s updated docs.new/2 shortcut is now live, interchangeable with docs.new and docs.new/1 if you want to begin a file in your default account.
