Share Google Drive Files Quickly with a Google Contact Group
1. Create and Name Contact Group:
Click on, “New Group,” and enter the name of your new contact group. (For student groups, you will probably want to name by class period. You can reuse these groups year to year.)
Select your new contact group from the left menu by clicking on the name of the group. The group will be empty.Click on the add contact button at the top of the page.
Here you can add users into the empty box. I copy and paste the email addresses from my Google spreadsheet, but you can also type them in manually. If these users are already in your contacts, these users will begin to appear as you start typing their name in the box.
After you have added the email addresses of the users you wish to add to the group, click “Add,” at the bottom of the box. Don’t be fooled by the size of this box, you can easily copy and paste a large number of email addresses. This is much faster than adding contacts individually.
Now when you are ready to share files with your new contact group, simply start typing the name of the group (like you normally type individual names or email addresses) and the group will appear in your list. (Note: Sometimes this can take a few minutes to sync.)
How do you share with groups? There are many other great ways to do this. Please feel free to share you thoughts below.
