Move files and folders within Team Folders

In Team Folder libraries you can move files and folders by drag-and-drop and using the Google Drive buttons (shortcut: Z), just like in regular Google Drive folders. However, AODocs maintains the integrity of the content of Team Folders by ensuring that files cannot be accidentally moved out of a Team Folder, which would prevent the Team Folder users from accessing them. As a result, if you move a file outside its Team Folder (for example, if you move a file from an AODocs Team Folder into your My Drive), AODocs will move the the file back to the Team Folder where it belongs after a few moments. 

Note: To move a file or folder outside a Team Folder, you must export the file. Only library administrators can export files or folders from a library.


Move files and folders within Secured Folders

In Secured Folder libraries, you can't move files or folders by drag-and-drop or with the standard Google Drive buttons. You can move files or folders in a Secured Folder only via the AODocs Smartbar button. Learn more: Presentation of the AODocs Smartbar.
