Tired of emailing documents back and forth with others to review and edit? Looking for a one-stop shop to store and share docs, spreadsheets, presentations, photos, .pdfs and more? Look no further...A Shared Google Drive is the solution to all your digital communication woes! Google Drive is a cloud-based tool ideal for sharing and collaborating on projects with your team, or even with those outside of your team or organization. A Shared Google Drive provides access to Docs, Sheets, Slides and more, allowing real-time edits by team members for easy collaboration. Even better, Microsoft Office products are compatible for use with Shared Google Drives. In this 2-hour long project-based course, you will learn how to create a Shared Google Drive, add members and manage member roles within your new Shared Google Drive, build content within new Shared Google Drive using Google tools, continue building content using sources outside of Google and review/adjust settings in your new Shared Google Drive. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
