Google Drive: Copy A Folder

Have you ever been working within the Google Drive web interface and you think; “hey, I really wish I could make a copy of this whole folder and everything it contains”. Yeah, me too. Doesn’t that seem reasonable? For Google, I guess not. Today I’m going to show you a workaround to make a copy of a folder in Google Drive.

1. Login to Google Drive. Find the folder you want to make a copy of. Below you’ll see we’re going to make a copy of the folder I titled “sub-folder” original, eh?


2. Right Click on the folder you want to copy & then click “download”

It’s bound to happen, someone leaves or is terminated from your school, workplace, or organization.

How to bulk move users in Google Apps

Cleaning up your Google Apps Domain {GAD}, if it was not kept up, is not always fun is never fun. This week my goal was to organize our GAD to make implementing the new Google Vault service easier. The first thing you must do is consider how you want to organize your users. My tip is to only create Organizational Units {OU’s} for settings you might need to implement. My motto is the fewer OU’s, the better. Here are ours.

  • Admins
  • Students
    • Campus 1
    • Campus 2
    • Campus 3
  • Faculty & Staff
  • Former Employees

The one change I think i’d make to our OU’s as I think about it little more, would be to break the Campuses down by graduation year so bulk removal For is easier. **project for tomorrow**

To do bulk editing I use a tool called Google Apps Manager {GAM}. GAM is command line based, but don’t be scared, it’s easy. However, this post is not going to go through the setup, or even how to get GAM working, but Chomebook you can find all of that info here. Or, you can drop me a line and i’ll help you in any way I can.

Step 1 – Once you have GAM installed, running, and you’re in the Command cheap nfl jerseys Prompt the first thing I like to do is check to make sure we’re still connected to our domain by doing a: gam info domain

Step 2 – You need to create a txt file with each username you want to move on their own line. I find the easiest thing to do is pull this info from PowerSchool, or from GAD into a csv & paste into notepad. You’ll need to save that file as something easy to remember like staff.txt and save in the GAM folder.

Step 3Mehrmarkenwerkstatt Make sure you can access your org via GAM by typing: gam info org OR <org het name> so if my OU is called staff I’d type: gam info org staff  if my org is accessible I’ll see “Organizational Unit: <name of org>” on the next line. Now You we’re ready to rock and roll.

Step 4 – This is where the magic happens, not really, but kind of. You just need to type this happy little command: gam update org <org name> add file <filename.txt>  so, if we’re updating our staff OU with the staff.txt file we created in step two the wholesale jerseys command will look like this: gam update org staff add file staff.txt boom, done. The command will wholesale mlb jerseys process through the wholesale nba jerseys file and you’ll be loved by all.

You can do tons of things with GAM, but I find this to be one of the most useful things I’ve used it for. I hope this makes your life a little easier. If you have any questions at all feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

Using Techsmith Snagit For Screenshots

I love screenshots as visual backup resources for my teachers and admin staff, they just work. For On a long Shady time I’ve been using the regular to ol’ print screen & edit in Photoshop method to create feature rich screenshots and it works great. However, when I was at ISTE this wholesale jerseys year I learned about TechSmith’s Sangit. It’s a dual Chrome wholesale Arizona Cardinals jerseys application & Extension Miami Dolphins Jerseys that allows you to create screenshots & video wholesale NBA jerseys screencasts all within the LabVIEW browser. Mind blown. It’s beautiful, simple, and way faster than my old print screen & Photoshop method. Alas, maybe not as feature rich, but it does everything I need it to do, plus it works on our ChromeBooks as well. Here’s short video on how it works.

Enjoy! If you cheap jerseys have any questions drop me a line.

Chomebook Updates On Our Network

The last two weeks wholesale jerseys we’ve started doing online testing <a href="http://destiut le prix du viagra en pharmacie.com/utile/auto/why-shop-online-football-shirt-sites/”>Why for benchmarks. This is the first time we’ve done any online testing, chomebooks are new to cheap jerseys us, and we’re trying to test hundreds of students at once. Best two weeks ever? Yup.

The only issue we’ve come across (surprisingly) was super for duper slow internet speeds. We don’t have a ton of bandwidth, but surely we had enough to test our students. That brought me to our Merkai Dashboard. That’s where I found this.


Obviously our CB’s are eating up all of our bandwidth with Chrome Updates. Why didn’t we update Chrome when we rolled out? I have no idea, but we didn’t. CDU… First I had to figure out how to either limit traffic to Google, or spread these updates across multiple days. Guess what? cheap jerseys Google already had this VA figured out for me. In the domain admin console you can spread your updates cheap jerseys across multiple days. Thank you, Google. Here is the screenshot of our new settings.

2014-09-18_00-06-09After making these few changes our bandwidth usage dropped dramatically and now we’re updating across multiple days. If you have any questions about our current config drop me a line.
