New Google sharing dialogue

What’s changing 

We’re updating the interface you use to share files from Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms on the web. This will replace the previous interface used to share files and manage members of shared drives. These changes will make it easier to share files only with specific people without expanding access beyond what’s needed.

Who’s impacted 

End users

Why it matters 

Sharing files is critical to collaboration. This is especially true now, as more workforces are remote and collaborating on files from different locations. By making it easier to share files with specific people, we hope to improve collaboration while reducing the risk of access by unwanted users. 

Additional details 

We’ve made several changes to the sharing experience. These make it easier to perform common tasks, avoid accidental permission changes, and quickly see who has access to a file. Specifically you may notice:

  • Separated, task-focused interface: The new sharing dialog highlights essential user tasks like sharing a file, changing permissions, and viewing file access. The redesign also visually separates sharing with people and groups from link-sharing. 
  • Quick “copy link” button: We’ve added a “copy link” button to make it easier to get the link without changing link permissions. 
  • Easily see current access: The new interface more clearly shows who currently has access to the item, making it easier to quickly audit and change permissions.

Technology tips for internet at home

With many of our students and staff working at home during this emergency, it is a good time for Technology to pass on some tips to make your Internet connections successful. Keep in mind that your school has a very fast Internet connection compared to homes. So your connection at home will be slower than at school. Also, the school uses enterprise-class wifi routers that will support many users at the same time. Home routers can support several users, but will be slower.

So, what can you do to make your home Internet experience successful?

1. Take the time to locate the wireless router in your home. The closer you are to it the better (and faster) your connection will be. Being in the same room is much better than being across the house.

2. Keep the number of tabs that you have in Chrome to a minimum. A few tabs is OK, but more than 5 or 6 will slow your computer down.

3. Many students like to listen to tunes while they do their work. But those tunes come to you over your internet connection. If each person is listening to tunes (or watching streaming TV, like Netflix or Hulu), the slower your Internet will seem.

4. It is a good practice to restart your computer every week.

We hope that you have a good Internet experience while you are working
