I have one google document - which i like to keep as a master copy/template. I want to allow users without any kind of email/account to access this master copy - edit something and save it to doc file or pdf file. Is it possible? Any small script or access setting possible ? Please suggest.
It is not possible to open or use Google doc without google account. Here is what you can do to protect your master template:
Grab the url and replace the last path element
/copy. Example: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1BKMD8jG5Z6zUds1fonf-Vvt1uA3kAZoS5OCeCZTeFME/copy
When a user opens your new link, he will be presented with the dialog below. If he clicks on Make a copy, a new copy will be created on his Google drive
