COLLABORATE smart with Google Team DRIVE

Hi staff! - I'm sorry, but my first attempt to start up a shared folder environment totally crashed! - Reason? - I didn't get the grip around the software that was to help me perform it, so I did my homework!

Google Team Drives is a new collaboration tool found within G Suites. Team Drives are shared spaces where teams can store their files and guarantee that every member has the most up-to-date information.

Typical department folder setup!

One way Team Drives is different from a shared Google Drive folder/app is that the documents are owned by the team - not an individual. This feature removes "fear" of working in a collaborative space because only the Full Access control level may delete a file.

Important points

  • You may quickly and easily move files from your current Drive into a Team Drive.
  • You may use the keystroke Shift + Z to add a copy of something from your Drive into a Team Drive.
  • You can not move a document owned by someone else into a Team Drive. You will need to ask the owner to move it into Team Drive.
  • Team members can also move files from one Team Drive to a different Team Drive provided they have full access to the original Team Drive and at least edit access to the destination Team Drive.

Get started, put department materials into the Team Drive and feel the relief!
