Create or join a Team Folder

Create a Team Folder

As new projects are launched on your team, you can create new Team Folders at any time in Zoho WorkDrive. Based on the number of projects or tasks that you have, you can create multiple Team Folders and add team members as required.

To create a Team Folder:
  1. Click the '+' sign next to Team Folders in the left panel.

  2. Enter the name of your Team Folder and choose the type of Team Folder you want to create. This will either be a public Team Folder or a private Team Folder.
  3. (Optional) Include a short description of your Team Folder so that your members know what it's about.

  4. Click Create.

  5. Optional: At this point you can either add members to your Team Folder or skip this step by clicking Go to Team Folder. To add members, enter email addresses, assign roles, then click Add.
If creating a public Team Folder is restricted to Admins at the team level, team members cannot create a public Team Folder.

  • Use public Team Folders for sharing general information.
  • Create private Team Folders for selected members to collaborate on exclusive tasks or projects.

Join a Team Folder  

  • You can only join a public Team Folder within your team. 
  • To be part of a private Team Folder, the Team Folder Admin or Organizer will have to add you to it. 
  • You can be a member in any number of Team Folders, depending on the projects you've been assigned.

To join a public Team Folder:
  1. Click Team Folders in the left panel. All public Team Folders in your organization will be listed.

  2. Hover your mouse over the Team Folder name and click Join

  • When you join a public Team Folder, you will be assigned the Viewer role by default. The Team Folder Admin or Organizer can change this to another role if you need an higher access permission.
