When creating a text document in Google docs it can be handy to have a table of contents.  The TOC might be used for long documents that would allow participants in the document to know the outline of the document as well as be able to jump to the part of the document that covers that topic.

Steps:

To create a TOC you will go to the insert menu and choose table of contents.

The TOC will be inserted where your cursor is. In order to get the TOC to work you will have to utilize the heading options. Highlight the text you wish to make a header, in the toolbar the default is normal text.  Change the text from normal text to being a heading.

Heading 1 will create the largest font and will be justified left in your table of contents.

Heading 2 will be smaller in the document and will be indented in the table of contents

Heading 3 will be small within the document and indented in the table of contents further in than heading 2.
