Import files and folders from Google Drive
You can import files and folders from Google Drive by drag and drop from your My Drive or Shared with me to the target folder in your Team Folder.

When you import files to the Team Folder:
- ownership is transferred to the AODocs storage account of the Team Folder
- the files are automatically shared with all the users who have access to the Team Folder
- all previous permissions on the files are kept if the Team Folder is configured with flexible permissions
To import files and folders, you can also press the Smartbar button Import into AODocs. When using this button:
– End users and library administrators can import files and folders but these restrictions apply:
* they can import only files they own
* they can't import more than 10 folders and 100 files
– AODocs super administrators can import files and folders without any limitations
