Add a file or folder managed by AODocs to your My Drive

As an end-user, you can use the Google Drive feature Add to My Drive to add any folder and files you can access in your browsing tree under your My Drive.

This Google Drive feature also applies to files and folders managed by AODocs. You can add to your My Drive an AODocs library or a specific subfolder or file of your AODocs library.

Note:
- You can can add subfolders of an AODocs library only if you are in a Team Folder or Secured Folder library.
- You can add any files managed by AODocs to your My Drive, regardless of the type of library.

Important: For a Team Folder library or a Secured Folder library, administrators can automatically push a whole library to the My Drive of all users. In this case, end-users can’t remove the library from their My Drive, but they can organize the library in their My Drive.
