Cloud Storage App
All work your employee will do for the company will be saved in their 'Work' folder, which is stored and shared with you through a cloud storage app.
If your employee is using a free cloud storage app (e.g. Google My Drive, OneDrive), files your employee will save in their folder are not automatically shared with you. Your employee will be the owner of these files unless they manually transfer the ownership to you.
Take note that transferring of file ownership can only be done for Google app files (e.g. Google Docs, Google Sheets). Other files such as PDF, images and videos will remain under your employee's account ownership.
If you choose to use a free cloud storage app, your employee will access this using the company email account they will create during the onboarding process.
If you use a paid-for business Shared Drive (e.g. Google Shared Drives, Microsoft Sharepoint), any file your employee saves in the shared drive will be automatically shared with you. You will also be the owner of the shared drive, which means you have full control over what type of access your employee has.
If you do not currently have a Shared Drive (e.g. Google Shared Drives or Microsoft Sharepoint), we recommend you stick with a free cloud storage app for now- you can always upgrade later.
Select the type of Cloud Storage App your employee will be using.
