Google Drive Workspace

The Workspaces section in Google Drive lets you gather groups of items from Drive into a Workspace for quick access.

To use the Workspace section in Google Drive first click on the 'Priority' link on the top left in your Google Drive.

When you click on Choose other files.... a new window will slide open on the right hand side. To find a file click on the spyglass at the top (1) and type in the name of the file you are looking for. You can also scroll through the list of files below the spyglass until you find the one you want. When you have found the file you want click on it (2) and then click on Insert (3). Continue to do this until you have added all the files you want in your workspace.
