This document describes how to upload a document to TitanApps/Google Drive
Opening the Uploaded Document
- After logging in to Google Drive, click New > File Upload.
- Find and select the document you want to upload on your computer.
- A status bar at the bottom right of the window will provide information about the upload's progress.
- Once uploaded, your document will appear in your My Drive space.
Some features from Word may not work the same way in Google Docs. The same functionality may be there, but accessible in a different way. Please contact the Help Desk if you run into any difficulties with this.
- The sample document uploaded is a Word document, indicated by the W icon to the left of its name.
- Double-clicking on the file name opens the document in preview mode. The menu pictured below will appear across the top of the page, above an un-editable preview of the document.
- Click Open next to the blue Google Docs icon. This will open an editable copy of the document in Google Docs.
- Back in Google Drive, there will now be two copies of the document. One is the original Word document, and the other is the new Google document.
