As we head into the middle of July and summer vacations, I thought this would be a good time to share some tips for organizing Google Drive.  This is a perfect rainy day activity when you have a few moments (easier said than done).

Most of us (myself included) probably didn’t start off with organizational “best practices,” like naming conventions and folder structure when we started working on Google Drive.  Over the years I’ve organized Google Drive as I went along.

We’ll go over a few tips that you can do to start organizing Drive.  Not all of these will work for you and your preferences.  Your organization really boils down to what works for you, your personal preferences, and organization techniques.

 

 

 

 

 

My tips for organizing Google Drive summary:

1. Folder structure

2. File naming convention

3. Color code folders

4. Organize important shared docs/files

5. Utilize the info button/icon and use sort functions

Additionally, below is a short demo video for Archiving a Class in Google Classroom.  This is a super simple process, but worth a look if you’re not sure where to start.

You’ll also find a slideshow a for step-by-step instructions on this process here – Google Classroom – Archiving a Class.

Thanks for reading and watching!
