In this Zoom session, we will look at a wide range of productivity features of Google Drive, and highlight those that you may not know about. We'll go slowly so you can follow along in your own browser, allowing time to play. These include:

  • An Overview of Google Drive
  • Navigation in the main window / left-side navigation
  • Creating and uploading folders and files
  • Working with files
  • Search for files easily
  • Connecting to Google Calendar, Google Keep, and Tasks
  • Shared Drive
  • Make a single file present in several folders
  • Share a Google Doc as PDF using a link
