Organizing Files, Folders and Documents in Google Drive

Organizing files and folders in Google Drive works sightly differently than when using Microsoft Office. In Microsoft Office, the user creates and edits documents within the Office Suite, document organization however, is done at the computer operating system and users generally organize their files on a folder located on their computer.

File organization in Google Drive and Google Docs takes place in the same web interface that document creation and editing takes place. Although many traditional document storage ideologies still exist in Google Drive, the actual implementation is a bit different and this tutorial walks users through all of the different options when organizing and managing documents in the 2013 Google Drive interface.

I do not work for Google, nor was I compensated for the production of this video series. I am simply a Google Docs user (both personally and professionally) that would like to share my knowledge and insight with others to help provide a more seamless transition to Google Drive.

Feel free to share my video with others and if you plan on watching the entire Google Drive Tutorial 2013 video series, you may want to bookmark my post containing all 4 videos on the same page.
