From your Docs list, click the Create new drop-down menu and select Spreadsheet.

An untitled spreadsheet appears in your browser -- now you're ready to edit!

Docs Basics

Docs Accessing, creating, editing, printing, and sharing

There are several kinds of Google Docs: text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, and forms. We’ll use a basic text document to show you how to get started with Google Docs. Most of these steps also work for other document types, so learn these tasks and you’re on your way to creating presentations, spreadsheets, forms, and drawings too.

Access your documents

One of the great things about Google Docs is that you can access your documents from any computer, anywhere in the world.

To view a list of documents you own or have access to, or to create a document:

  • Visit your district portal page and sign in.

A list of the ESU 13 portal address can be found here.

  • Click the link on your district portal page for “Google Docs”

When you're using a Google Apps product (e.g. Gmail, Calendar), you'll see other Apps products listed at the top left of the page. Click Documents to access your Docs list.


In your Docs list, you'll see all of the documents, presentations, spreadsheets, forms, and drawings you have access to.


Create a document
From your Docs list, click Create and then select Document.




Rename your document

Just click on the title (the title is “Untitled document” when you first create it) to rename the document.


Edit and format your document

There are many ways to edit your document with the edit toolbar.
