Create new Team Folders

With the AODocs Smartbar installed, you can create a new Team Folder in Google Drive.

A Team Folder is a type of AODocs library that is integrated into Google Drive. AODocs libraries are associated with a single AODocs storage account that owns all documents in the library. 

– 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 new libraries. This role is defined and managed at the domain level by AODocs super administrators. Learn more: Manage library creators.

To create a new Team Folder:

1. Open Google Drive and select the library picker.

2. At the bottom of the drop-down menu, select New Team Folder

3. In the library creation dialog, enter the name of the new Team Folder.

Note: The library name can contain any kind of character (including special characters) but the library name must be unique. Two libraries can't have the same name.

4. Select an AODocs storage account for your new Team Folder.

– If only one AODocs storage account is configured on your AODocs tenant, it's selected by default.
– If several AODocs storage accounts have been configured, select the AODocs storage account you want to assign to this library from the list. This list includes only AODocs storage accounts for which the current user is included in the availability setting.

5. Click Create.
    A success message appears when the library is created.
