Any Workspace card can have a Google Doc added to it, simply click on the Google Drive icon and then select a file from your Google Drive or upload one.
You can also create a new Google Drive document from the card itself by clicking on the Create New button. The document will be named automatically using the card title.
Google Forms and Slides
Google Forms and Slide Presentations are a little different to Google Docs and Sheets when it comes to sharing behaviours, as there is the option to share for collaboration (background editing) or the option to share for presentation or filling out (foreground viewing or editing).
If you use the Google File picker to add a Form to a Workspace card, Google will attempt to grant collaboration access and learners might see a "You need permission" window, which often isn't the teacher's intention.
To add a Google Form to a Workspace card for learners to fill out, we recommend to:
- Open the Google Form you wish to send
- Click the Send form button up the top right
- Copy the link to the form by clicking Link
- Paste this link in your Workspace Card via the link icon
This ensures that when students click the link, they are directed to fill out the Google form as a respondent. Don't forget to check your form settings to ensure they are configured correctly before being filled out!

Google Slide Presentations
We do recommend using the Google File picker to add Google slide presentations as you can configure sharing permissions within the Slide before sharing.
Alternatively, can publish your Google Slide to the web, where a unique webpage with its own URL is created, and this should be added to a Workspace card differently:
- Open the Slide Presentation you wish to publish and share
- Select FilePublish to the web
- Choose how quickly to advance the slides
- Click Publish
- Copy the link and paste this in your Workspace Card via the link icon
