How to Create Google Docs Using Existing Templates

It looks like we can use Zapier to create blank Google Docs. Is there a way to create them using templates instead? They could be templates found in our template library, or just a duplicate of a “template” Google Doc.

Hey @kromatic ,


Can you try using this action of Google Drive to copy a Google Doc template?

Than you will get a doc id which you can use to share with others.

Hi @kromatic!

Yes, you can do this with Zapier using the Create Document from Template Google Docs action 😃 You can choose an existing template that you have and use that to create a new Google doc. 

If you have any problems with your template, this help guide can help you troubleshoot things.
