Google Shared Drives – Move entire folders, manage folder level permissions

submitted by

Google has enabled the ability to move entire folders from your personal Google Drive to a shared Google Drive and manage folder level permissions on shared drives. Up until recently files had to be transferred individually between drives, making for a very arduous process. Now entire folders, including folders containing nested folders or Google-type documents can be transferred.

Departments are encouraged to use Google shared drives for storing files because they are not tied to one singular owner, simplifying employee departures. For more information please contact your LFC.
