Google Share Options Review

A few Google Doc and folder sharing questions have recently come my way. Some teachers enjoy sharing pictures of students. An easy way to do this is to create a Google Folder in Drive and then make the folder shareable by a link.


To make a Google Folder viewable to parents click the "Share" button for a folder -> "Get Shareable Link" -> click the down arrow under "Link Sharing On" -> click "More" -> select "On - Anyone with the Link" (copy the link) -> click "Done" -> then email the link to parents and/or add the link to your website to share. See images below. If you need help setting up a folder to share with parents, just let me know.
