STAGE 1 - Manager Actions
Set up the Employee Work Folder
In this step, you will be creating the employee's work folder in the 'Staff Work' shared drive and share this folder with your employee.
Your employee will be saving all their work files in their Work folder. Since the files are saved in a folder within your company's shared drive, you will automatically own the files. You also have full control over the type of access you can give your employee.
When sharing the folder with your employee, we recommend you give them 'Contributor' access. This allows them to edit the files in their folder but restricts them from moving or deleting any file.
If you have not created the 'Staff Work' shared drive, click here and follow the instructions on how to create a shared drive. Only perform the actions in item 1.1 Create a shared drive, in the tutorial. Name the shared drive 'Staff Work'
Next, you will create the employee work folder and share it with them. Watch the video tutorial below to find out how this is done.
1. (If not yet done) Create a Shared Drive and name it 'Staff Work'.
