FAQ for our Google Workspace - Part 2 - Collaboration

Q: How do I share a document in Google Drive
A: In this session we walk you through safely sharing documents with colleagues and external parties. There’s more to sharing than just right clicking on the file and selecting share. 

Q: What’s the difference between my Drive and a shared drive
A: My Drive is your “My Documents” but hosted in the cloud, you are the only one that can access your My Drive. Shared drives is a shared space where you can centrally store documents and files.

Q: Can I use Microsoft files in Google Drive?
A: Yes you absolutely can, Google Drive has the ability to open and edit Microsoft documents. You can upload a Microsoft format document in both My Drive and Shared Drives to collaborate with colleagues on.
