Note: In a secured folder as in a team folder, you can either click on upload and pick files or folders from your computer, or directly drag & drop the files or folders from your desktop to the file picker.

2. Import files from Google Drive

Important: You need to be owner of the file to import it into AODocs. Unless if you are AODocs super administrator.

To import from Google Drive, drag and drop your file or folder from your “My Drive” or "Shared with me" to your destination folder. You can also click on the Smarbar button "Import into AODocs" displayed on the document (1).

Click on “Import to root” (3) to import the file to the Root folder of the Secured Folder. If you want to import the file to a subfolder you can click on “select subfolder” (4) after selecting the Secured Folder.

Click on “Select a subfolder” and click on the subfolder you want to import your file in (5). Note that you simply need to select the folder you want to import the document into, not open it. The folder will be highlighted. Now click “Select” (6) to import the file to the desired subfolder.

Note: If you are an End User, you cannot import a folder from My Drive. You have to contact your administrator to realize this action.
