Google Apps: Creating and Sharing a file

It is easy to create a google drive file, this could include docs, slides or sheets, which can be shared to other staff or individuals with a link. File created and stored in google apps can be simultaneously edited by different users and accessed from any device with internet access.

To create a file you will need to log in using your Marjon google apps account. If you don’t have one then please contact the Melt team at elearning@marjon.ac.uk.

Once you have accessed your google account you need to navigate to your google drive, using the menu in the top right hand corner.
