Add files or folders managed by AODocs to your My Drive

As an end user, you can use the Google Drive feature Add shortcut to Drive to add any files and folders you have access to from your browsing tree under your My Drive.

This Google Drive feature also applies to items managed by AODocs. You can add AODocs libraries, subfolders and documents to your My Drive.

Notes: You can add:
–  subfolders only in Team Folders or Secured Folders
–  any files managed by AODocs to your My Drive, regardless of the type of library

Important: For Team Folders or Secured Folders, administrators can automatically push a shortcut of a whole library to the My Drive of all users. In this case, end users can’t remove the library from their My Drive, but they can organize the library in their My Drive.
