Share files and other content with a group



Share your Google Workspace content—such as Google Calendar, Sites, Docs, and files stored in Google Drive—with multiple people at once using Google Groups. For example, you could create a group with the email address and add several members. You could then use the group's email address to share a document with everyone in the group.

Note: If you add someone to your group, that person automatically gains access to content you previously shared with that group. If you remove someone from a group, that person no longer has access to any content you shared with the group.


  • Share resources, status updates, and more using a single team email address, instead of multiple individual email addresses.
  • Change access permissions for everyone at once, instead of changing them for each person manually.
  • If someone leaves the team, there's no need to search for everything you've ever shared with them. Just remove that person from the group, so they can't access any previously shared group content.
