Files vs. File Groups
There are two ways to save links to your files: Files and File Groups
A “file” is simply a link to an individual file. Simply click on the add file button to add one from either Google Drive, your computer or the web.
The “Add file” button is displayed in an empty section
The “Add More Files” button is displayed at the bottom of the section when other files have been uploaded already
A “file group” allows you to group several similar files together. This comes in handy when you have different variations of a file.
Some example file groups:
- Multiple versions of a logo (ex: print, web, different sizes)
- Sales decks for different types of customers (ex: smb, enterprise)
- Links to online media mentions of your brand
- A specific process within a project (ex: design references)
You can create a group by clicking the file group buttons shown in the two images above (“Add more files” shows a drop-down to create a file group when clicked). You can also turn a file into a file group by clicking on the right menu (“…”) and choosing the link there.
You can then create a file group, give it a name and add individual files to it.
