Google makes collaborating and sharing a document in Google Drive VERY EASY!

When editing a Google document, in the top right corner there is a Share button.  In the EVSC, you can easily search all the staff and student names in our network and select the names you want to share a document.  There are also options to limit access to editing and viewing.

Current Limitations of Google Drive Document Sharing

  • 50 people can edit at the same time.
  • 250 people can view at the same time.
  • If the document is published to the web, viewership is limitless.*
* As long as no restrictions to limit access have been placed on the document.
