"Document Management Library" vs "Secured Folder Library"


We are trying to determine which library to use. 

According to the Article AODocs overview: choose an AODocs library , "Secured Folder Library" is fully integrated with google drive. It seems much better than "Document Management Library".

Does anyone know the advantage of using "Document Management Library" than "Secured Folder Library"?

Thank you in advance.




  • We prefer Document Management libraries because we can use a traditional check-in/check-out logic where files are locked and new versions created. I don't know enough about Secured Folder library to know if you can use workflows ... but that is also something we leverage in Document Libraries.

  • It depends on your needs.

     1. Document Managment library - it's mostly for Doc Workflows.

     2. Security folder - it's for File Server Storage organization mostly.

    So, if the purpose to store the document with different security and access level your choose should be Security Folders.

    Thank you.
