Have you ever lost access to a Google doc because the owner left the UW without transferring ownership to someone on your team? It will never happen again if you use Team Drives!

What is Google Team Drives?

Google Team Drives are shared spaces where teams can easily store, search, and access their files anywhere, from any device. Team Drives allows files to be owned by a team instead of an individual. When members of a team leave, the files remain where they are so all members can continue to access, collaborate, and get the work done.


  • Add members and set permissions
  • Add files and folders
  • organize files
  • Share with people outside of your team
