Hi everyone... I've been having a mind blank and need some help please. Under the "old" slides you could copy an embedded slide from a site by clicking on the "Google Slides" words to open the embedded deck in slides and then copy ... can this be done in the updated slides?

Great to see this addition to Google Arts and Culture however if you're in Auckland worth a visit for real. The Māori Portraits Gottfried Lindauer's New Zealand was amazing plus lots more to see.

Two new Alice Keeler extensions that I'm loving :)
Drive slides loads photos from a folder into a new slides presentation automatically. Great for sites/blogs etc. No more photo peach for me.

Anyonecanview is an extension that allows you to click once to make any doc/slide/drawing/sheet viewable by anyone with the link.

Simple, smart & sexy. 

Morena NZ Google Community.
I am loving using the new improvement to Google Classroom. Particularly being able to assign learning tasks to specific students.

I am wondering if there has been ay discussion about adding another " "Events" as a type of item that can be assigned to students. By event I mean a calendar event for a video Hangout

Kia ora koutou, just wondering if anyone had tried using the new Google Sites yet? We've built a portal for staff appraisal documentation but now just getting 404 errors when trying to access it.
