Google Shared Drives are a great way for departments and project teams to create, store, and search files. You can belong to multiple Shared Drives, and they are available wherever you access your Google My Drive.

In Shared Drives, you don't have to worry about who owns the files because the team owns the files, not individuals. And if a member leaves the team, the files stay in the Shared Drive.

Note: Shared Drives cannot have Google Forms with file upload questions in them

To get started, submit a ticket to request a Shared Drive.
