Properly using Google Drive is one of the best ways teachers can save time and energy in the classroom. But if you’re creating daily assignments for students in multiple classes, it can cause a few headaches.

One of the best ways to create assignments in bulk, while maintaining the same naming conventions and sharing them directly with students, is the Google Apps Script Doctopus. With Doctopus you can ensure that all students have their own copy of an assignment while using the power of Google Drive, Docs, Spreadsheets and Folders.

This video walks you through all of the steps you need to take before actually running the Doctopus script. This involves setting up your template (if you need one), along with building a student roster in Google Spreadsheets.
