Collaborating with Google Team Drives

Google Team Drives has recently become available as an option for sharing files and folders. With Team Drives, documents are owned by a team instead of an individual. This means that when someone leaves the group, their files remain in the Team Drive without having to transfer ownership. Our Extension Technology team has moved to Team Drives which makes finding shared documents and folders so much easier! We also no longer need to transfer document ownership to a departmental account. We all have access to create folders and manage files within our Team Drive.
Team Drives FeaturesCan be shared to Google Groups and/or users with varying levels of accessAll members of a Team Drive see the same content Files are owned by the team, not by an individualYou can add external users to a Team Drive. The external user must have a Google account and be signed into Drive.Individual files in a Team Drive can be shared with people outside of your team Differences between My Drive and Team Drives

Episode 7: Live at Program Conference

(recorded October 4, 2016)
This podcast is a bit different! We have a special illustrious guest, Mark Seeley, Extension Climatologist. We mostly talk to him about his WebEx experiences, but also a little about podcasting in general. We had a great live audience for this show! At the conference breakout session, we concluded the recording and then edited and uploaded the episode live. This is it, the real recording exactly as seen from start to finish live!
