Create your first Team Folder

Libraries are document containers. A Team Folder library is associated with a single Google Drive storage account that owns all the documents in the library. Each library has its own specific configuration.

A Team Folder is integrated in Google Drive. You can create Team Folders in Google Drive and the AODocs interface.

Notes
– In Google Drive, you can also transform Google Drive folders into Team Folders.
– In the AODocs interface, you can create a library by copy or from a template.

Important
– You must be a Google user to create Team Folders. Microsoft users can't create Team Folders.
– You must also be a library creator. This role is defined and managed at the domain level by AODocs super administrators. Learn more: Manage library creators.
