If you’ve ever found yourself looking for a document with a name you can’t remember, but you are able to remember who shared it with you, you can click on the Shared With Me section in the menu on the left side of the screen. From there you can scroll through the docs created by others.

If that list is too big, you can use Google Drives search function to type in the name of a collaborator instead of a file name, so if all you know is with whom you’re working, you’ll be able to find the document and get back to work!

    I started using drive three years ago because it is great to share documents and spreadsheets. The fact that it is free to use makes it easier to share with people outside my organization. Now I use a chromebook for most of my work and I don't have to care about backups.

    I use Microsoft Office applications but when it comes to online storage, I use Google Drive. It is so conveniently linked with my gmail account.
