Two new updates for Google Docs
make this very simple and free collaboration tool even more useful for
a board or committee at any small non-profit — shared folders, and the
ability to upload multiple files at one time.
To share a group of items, all you have to do is put them all
into a folder and share the folder. As you’d expect, if you add an item
to a shared folder, it will automatically be shared and if you add
someone to an existing shared folder, they will instantly get access to
all of the folder’s content.
It’s now easy to upload a group of documents, grouping all
of those related to one project in one folder, and then to share all of
those documents with other members of your work team without having to
set the share permissions separately for each and every file.
Shared folders, plus the multiple-file upload feature, equals a
small convenience that can be a big timesaver for online collaboration
on quick projects.
