To build on our innovations in smart canvas that help you simplify workflows and complete common tasks with easy-to-use prompts in Google Docs, we’re introducing placeholder chips.
When crafting content in Docs, a replaceable chip for people, dates, files, events, and places can be inserted and quickly filled in by collaborators. Upon hovering or clicking on a chip, a search menu opens and includes results filtered to the chip type. Placeholder chips are particularly useful in building blocks, custom building blocks, tables, and more.
Admins: There is no admin control for this feature. End users: Placeholder chips are only editable on the web, but can be viewed on web and mobile. Visit the Help Center to learn more about inserting smart chips & building blocks in your Google Doc.
Rapid Release and Scheduled Release domains: Gradual rollout (up to 15 days for feature visibility) starting on December 8, 2023
Available to all Google Workspace customers and users with personal Google Accounts
