In our current situation, one of the most important things to master is putting files online. When most of us, if not everyone, is working from home and only armed with an Internet connection, it is inevitable that sharing of important files and documents is one skill that everybody should already be a master of. After all, hasn’t it been more than five months and running since the world started this anxiety-driven quarantine where everybody needs to practice a safe distance from everyone else? So by now, we would have already developed a deep appreciation towards devices and apps that allow working from home to be that easy and convenient. Who knew that such things like uploading, sharing, and downloading files would become second nature to us, as essential as knowing how to participate in a videoconference (something which we should be skilled with even outside work because Facetime-ing, Skype-ing, or Zoom-ing relatives from across the country and the world is such a welcome relief) or wearing a face mask and practicing social distancing when outdoors.
One of the most popular file-sharing and cloud storage apps that people use whether for work or for other purposes is Google Drive. Since Google Drive is obviously part of the Google suite of programs that is basically ubiquitous all over the world, then it goes without saying that you would be in the very small minority if you haven’t come across the platform. So, if you’re still at a bit of a loss with Google Drive and making the most out of it, here are some information about it:
Upload and Share Documents
In these times when nobody is in the office and everyone is working at home, sharing of pertinent files is of the essence. This is where Google Drive becomes a convenient platform because email attachments can only be of a certain size. If you need to share documents or files of a larger size, your email server wouldn’t be able to handle it and this is where Google Drive comes in handy.
The first method is the simpler of the two, and it involves dragging the file or folder from your desktop, and dropping it into the browser window. The second option is to click on the "New" button on the top-left side of the screen and select either "File upload" or "Folder upload."
Download to Access Documents Offline
One of the most pressing features of a storage and file sharing platform for people working from home is the ability to download the shared files so that they can access it even if they are not connected to the net. This feature is very important especially for those who have intermittent WiFi or Internet connection.
Google Groups on Google Drive
If you want to share a file or document to not just one but several of your team members, it is not only possible but more convenient if you make a Google Group composed of these people and share your file with that group.
Multiple File Sharing on Google Drive
Another convenient feature of Google Drive is that it allows you to share multiple files all at once, not only one at a time.
