Why a shared drive?
Shared drive files belong to a GCISD District team instead of an individual. Even if members leave, the files stay in place so your team can keep sharing information and work anywhere, from any device.
Only collaborative and shared files should be moved to a Shared Drive. The Shared Drive function is not to be used as additional storage for personal content, "memorabilia" such as images/videos of years past, or files that are not shared or not currently being used for instruction. Those items should be archived in personal cloud storage or devices.
**Only add @gcisd.net email addresses to shared drives!
How to move items to a shared drive?
Important: You must be either a manager or a content creator of a shared drive to move items into a shared drive! If you need to be added as one of those roles, put in a help ticket or ask the drive manager to add you to the role.
