Create your first Secured Folder

Libraries are document containers. A library is associated with a single storage account that owns all the documents of your library. Each library has its own specific configuration.

A Secured Folder library is integrated in Google Drive. However, you create Secured Folders in the AODocs interface. Learn more: Switch between the AODocs interface and Google Drive.

Note: This article describe how to create a Secured Folder from scratch.
You can also copy a Secured Folder or create a Secured Folder from a template

3. Press the Create library button in the top right of the Create library panel.

4. In the library creation pop-up, enter the name of your new library.

Note: The library name can contain any characters (including special characters) but it must be unique. Two libraries can't have the same name.

5. Select a storage account for your new library.

Note: If you have only one storage account configured on your domain, it is selected by default. If several storage accounts have been configured, select the storage account you want to assign to this library from the list of available storage accounts. Learn more: The AODocs storage account

6. Press Create Library.
Your library is now created. You are redirected to the homepage of your library in the AODocs user interface. Once the library is created, the library creator receives an email to confirm that the library has been created.

Note: If the procedure takes a while, the system may display a message informing you that you won't be able to see your new library on Google Drive for the moment. You can still open your Secured Folder in AODocs by clicking Open in AODocs.
