Transferring Documents

TRANSFERRING  adams12.org
Now is a good time to clean out your Google filing cabinet.
Think of your Google account as a big filing cabinet. Your filing cabinet might be really organized and everything is in a file.  Your filing cabinet might be really messy and everything is dumped into one drawer.
This move is different! The GOOD news is that you do not need to load boxes and carry them to a new location.  The bad news is that 
                                       moving can't happen automatically.  You will move the documents
                                       that you want to keep to your adams12.org Google account.
DON'T panic! You have until June 30, 2012 to make the move!
Read the following directions carefully. You will be fine!
The directions tell you how to:
     A. Identify the documents that you want to transfer to your new Google account
     B. Share the documents with your new Google account
     C. Become the owner of the documents in your new Google account
Sounds easy? It is!
     The directions are very detailed.
           There are many images so that you don't get lost!
                   A PDF of the directions is attached to the bottom of this web page.
BUT there are people willing to help should you get lost. You can call the IT Help Desk at ext. 4120.
