Groups & Teams: Document Area Overview

The document area within a group or team page is a file manager that is available to house relevant documents. You can upload important documents and compile them into different sub-folders. This area provides a centralized, easy-to-access area that help groups and teams store and organize documents like minutes, flyers, forms and other group information that is helpful for group members to be able to access.

Note: Only Group Administrators and Document Administrators can upload documents, but all members have access to this area to be able to download files.
