TpT Sellers - Share this guide with buyers to teach them how to make a copy of a Google resource you have sold and shared with them through Google Drive. Purchase of this product allows you to add this resource directly into the zip file buyers download when they purchase your product(s).
Why would you want buyers to make a copy?
• In some cases you will want buyers to be able to make a copy of your Google resource because the product needs to be editable for students or you simply want to give buyers the ability to add new information
• Examples of editable products would be a brochure template that students use to build their own brochures or a Google Sheet with data that students use to create charts or perform calculations
• Note: If you are selling a Google Form quiz or survey, they can only be sent as can edit. It is important to add special instructions to these resources so buyers do not make changes to the master copy you send them. They will need to make a copy, so that they will have their own version, to use and send to students.
• Instruct buyers to email you upon purchase and you will share the resource through Google Drive. Keep in mind that this method is time consuming for you and the buyer.
• For most resources, I recommend you Share as a Link
. Don’t forget to provide the product link somewhere in your resource so buyers do not need to email you. They will simply click on the link to access the product.
The Exception to Option B (Google Forms)
Google Forms can only be sent as Can Edit.
This means that anyone could change the document, at any time, which would impact all of the other buyers of the product. This guide provides instructions to sellers on how to deal with this issue so you can sell Quizzes and Surveys in Google Forms.
Instructions for buyers
• This Google resource has been shared with you using the share setting Can View
to protect it
• Can View
allows you to open and view the TpT resource but not make changes to it
• To make changes to this document, please Make a Copy
of it, and then you will have your own version to edit and use
• The instructions in this guide will show you how to make a copy
Buyers will be able to make copies of the following in Google Drive…
1. Docs (Documents)
2. Sheets (Spreadsheets)
3. Slides (Presentations)
4. Forms (Surveys and Quizzes)
5. Drawings (Pictures, Posters and Advertisements)
Note: It is possible to convert a PDF document into a Google Doc, but in most cases it is not recommended. See the following resource for more information about converting PDF's to Google Docs...
