Google has added another time-saving feature to G Suite: Users can now save custom templates for Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms.

After a user submits a file into a shared template gallery on the home screen of Docs, Sheets, Slides, or Forms, his coworkers can adapt it and use it as a template when needed. For teams using G Suite for Business and Education, admins can restrict who submits new templates or require they be approved before showing up in the gallery.

Google has been giving its set of cloud office tools, previously known as Google Apps for Work, a bit of a makeover since they were rebranded as G Suite earlier this year. Last month, they were updated with new features like Explore and Action items. The tools have also become more useful thanks to machine intelligence.
