Switch between the AODocs interface and Google Drive

Some actions can be performed only in the AODocs interface, such as publish to the web and manage sharing permissions in a Secured Folder library.

Therefore, when working in Team Folder libraries and Secured Folder libraries using the AODocs Smartbar, you may need to switch from Google Drive to the AODocs interface and back again.
