How do I set up and share Google Drive files?

During a training, organizers can share a file hosted in their Google Drive and then collaborate on that file with attendees in real time.

Organizers must have a Google account in order to use this feature. Attendees do not need an account for either GoTo Training or Google. While these steps are to share a file during the session, we recommend that you set up any files you want to share before starting a session.
  1. Start an instant session.
  2. Select Share > Google Drive.
  3. Sign in to your Google account. If prompted, grant GoTo Training access to your Google account.

    Result: This automatically creates a GoTo Training folder in your Google Drive. Any documents uploaded or added to that folder will appear in this window. Alternatively, you can create a new Google file or select Manage Google files to open the page in a new browser.

  4. When you're ready to share a file, select Share again. If you are running breakout rooms, you will be prompted to Share in all rooms or in the room you're currently in.
What to do next: You can review the completed files with attendees in the main session by opening the file and sharing your screen. Once the session is over, you can access the final file in the GoTo Training folder of your Google Drive and share directly with attendees.
