Getting your content migrated from Google Docs to Trainual is pretty easy. To do it, you'll employ a technique you probably learned in a high school tech class: "Copy & Paste" πŸ˜‰ Here's the BEST way to do this to ensure you don't have any wonky formatting.

Start in Trainual

Set up the Subject, Topic(s), and Step(s), you'll need. If need some help thinking through how to organize and structure your content in Trainual, check out this help doc.

Next, do the following:

  1. Open a Step where you want the Google Doc content to live.

  2. Navigate to your Google Doc.

  3. Select and Copy the content you want using Ctrl+C (PC) or Command+C (Mac).

  4. Navigate back to the Trainual Step where you want it to go.

Depending on the browser you use, do the following:

  • Chrome (preferred): Right-click and select: Paste and Match Style

  • Safari: Click the Edit menu and select: Paste and Match Style

  • Firefox: Hold down CTRL+Shift+V (PC) or CTRL+Command+V (Mac)

Doing this removes the Google Doc formatting and lets you easily apply your established Brand Styles to the content you've pasted.

FYI: You may need to reformat things like:

  • headers

  • bullets & numbering

  • font colors

  • etc.

Why not just paste it without matching the style? The answer is: formatting. Google Docs has its own formatting and when you paste content without matching the style in Trainual, some of that formatting carries over and it can make "re-formatting" a challenge. It's something we're aware of and that we're working to improve.
