4. Select a file or folder from your computer in the dialog.

Important: You can't upload files using the Files feature on a Chromebook. You must use the AODocs import feature instead (see below).

5. Click Upload or Open. The file or folder is added to your Team Folder.

Note: When you import folders from your computer into AODocs, temporary files are not imported.

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

Notes:
To import files and folders, you can also click 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
