Shared Drives

Team members can upload, organise, and access their files from any location and any device thanks to the convenience of shared drives. Data stored in a shared drive does not belong to a single user like it does in My Drive. Your team can keep working together and sharing information even if some members depart, because the files won’t be moved.

Not sure whether to use My Drive or a shared drive?

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Is there enough interest among the project team members to warrant sharing the files?
  • Is there a unifying concept between the files?

If the answers to both of these questions are “yes,” then a new shared drive should be set up. You should set up many shared drives if the files are for different projects.

Changing ownership of a file or folder

You can make someone else the “owner” of a file or folder if you want them to be responsible for it. The file’s owner can remove it, restrict who can see it, and set who can access it.

How to change owners

You can change who owns a file or folder in Drive.

  1. Visit the main page for Drive or one of the individual apps for using with it: Docs, Sheets, or Slides.
  2. Initiate the conversation by clicking the “Share” button:
    • The plot of Drive: To share a file or folder, simply navigate to it and click the “share” button.
    • For the Google Docs, Sheets, or Presentations dashboard: To send the file to others, open it and then click the Share button.
  1. If the new owner has access to the editing functions. If that’s not the case, try these measures:
  • In the “Invite individuals” area, enter the new owner’s email address.
  • Select the Save and Share option.
  1. In the bottom right of the sharing box, select Advanced.
  2. To make a specific individual the owner of a file or folder, select their name from the drop-down option.
  3. Please select Is owner. When you are finished, please click the button..

Transferring ownership to or from a non-Hampshire Google account

Some of us may have Google files that pertain to Hampshire that are “owned” by individual accounts. Having your Hampshire account serve as the legal owner of these things is a recommended action. While ownership transfers between Hampshire College accounts are permitted, no such transfers are permitted to or from accounts held at institutions outside of Hampshire College. The current remedy consists of downloading all of your files from your personal account to your PC and then re-uploading them while signed into your Hampshire account.
