Create your first Team Folder

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

A Team Folder library 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 create a Team Folder from a template.

Important: Only library creators can create a new library. This role is defined and managed at the domain level by AODocs super administrators. Learn more: Manage library creators.
