Adding a Table of Contents to a Google Doc

In this video, I show you how to add a table of contents to a Google Doc in two different ways. One way is by changing the specified text to “headlines” and then inserting a Table of Contents, which automatically creates links to your headlines. The other way is by making your headlines into bookmarks and then inserting links to your bookmarks at the beginning of the document.

The fact that you can create a table of contents on a Doc is one of the many benefits of using Google Docs and the fact that it is all on the internet. Once you watch this video, you’ll see how easy it is to add a table of contents to any Google Doc.

  1. Great tip! Can you do similar (just without links) on Word? If so, I didn’t know that! Regardless, this is a great tip, thanks for sharing!!!


  2. Rosi, thank you for your question. Yes, you can make a table of contents in Microsoft Word. However, the difference is that in Docs you can click on the header in the Table of Contents and it will go directly to that spot on the page. In Word, the Table of Contents is just text.



  3. Hi,

    thanks for all the instructional videos. Regarding TOC, is it possible to create an automatic TOC pulled from multiple documents?

    document A with heading 1
    document B with heading 2
    document C containing TOC like: docA-heading1, docB-heading2

    thanks much for you help
