In my contacts, I created groups, which are now renamed "labels". I can still email my groups by typing the name of the group/label; however, I no longer have the possibility of sharing Google documents with these groups. It used to be easy to share a document with a group of people by simply entering the name of the group. Now that this has become impossible, I have to type in the name of each member of my group, a very time consuming and inconvenient task. I would appreciate your help in this matter. 6 Recommended Answers 18 Replies 62 Upvotes

I cannot share Google documents with the contact groups I created. They do not appear when I type in the names of the groups. I have to type in each group member's email address instead.

Could you please explain why this procedure has changed?

I don't believe it has, it's always been like that as far as I can remember. Yes custom Contact Groups have been renamed to Labels, but I don't believe behavior has changed.

I had this problem months ago, then it went away. Now it seems to be back. Major problem for me, as I have to share docs with groups of people weekly.
