Teams of coworkers often work on projects involving dozens – sometimes hundreds – of files, like documents, spreadsheets and presentations. As new materials are created and as teams grow and evolve, making sure the right people have access to the latest set of files has been a big challenge.
Today, this is changing with shared folders in Google Docs. Now you can assign viewers and editors to entire folders. Coworkers with access to a folder automatically have access to all the documents, spreadsheets, presentations and PDF contained in it, even as files are added or removed over time. This has been a top requested feature from Google Apps customers, so this an exciting development.
We're also launching the ability to select multiple files to upload in one step. Next time you have a batch of files saved on your computer that you want to collaborate on with coworkers from anywhere, give it a try.
