Import folders from Google Drive in a Secured Folder or Team Folder

In Secured Folder libraries and Team Folder libraries, you can import folders stored in your My Drive using the Import folders from Google Drive feature in the AODocs user interface. 

Note: You must be a library administrator or super administrator to perform this operation. 

1. From a view, press the Import folders from Google Drive button. 


2. A pop-up displays all the folders you own in Google Drive. Select the folder you want to import.

3. Press Select.


If you aren't an AODocs super administrator, the following restrictions apply when you use the folder import feature:

  • You can only import folders you own.
  • You can't import more than 100 files at once - if you try to import more than 100 files, AODocs the import operation won't start.

If one of these restrictions is encountered, the progress bar that appears during the import operation is displayed in red and shows that an error has occurred. Press View more details to see the reason why the import failed.


When you press View more details when an error occurred, a pop-up displays the error encountered during the import.

Error details - the limit of 100 files has been exceeded

Error details - the files in the folder are not all owned by the user running the import

Note: If you need to import a folder that contains files owned by multiple users, an AODocs super administrator can perform the operation and avoid having ownership transfer errors.

You can also import files from the Google Drive interface if you have installed AOdocs Smartbar.
