Thanks to the
new top-level domains, many companies provide short URLs to use their product quickly. CodePen has
pen, CodeSandbox has
react, GitHub has
repo, and they're many more out there. These URLs make the web feel very app-like, I like that!
And of course, Google is providing
new URLs with
slides, too. The problem with these URLs is that many people use Docs and Slides with multiple Gmail accounts.
Which account should be used when using
docs? And what happens if Google constantly chooses the wrong account to create a new document.
Today I learned, that Google's
new URLs support a URL parameter to specify the used Gmail account:
docs– primary account
docs- secondary account
- and so on...
That's pretty cool!
