Review your Google Workspace domain settings before the update to multiple-location Drive files

Dear Administrator,

As previously announced, starting on June 27, 2022 and in the weeks thereafter, we will be replacing multiple-location Drive files with shortcuts. Any impacted users in your Google Workspace domain will start seeing an in-product notification banner about two weeks before the replacement starts. The banner will notify them about the change and will point them to a support article with more info. The migration will take place automatically—no action will be required from your users.

What do I need to do?

You can control when to create shortcuts in a shared folder within your Google Workspace domain via the Admin console. Please review the Control when to create shortcuts in a shared folder section in our Help Center, and choose the best shortcut creation option for your organization.

If you don’t take any action by the time we implement the changes, we’ll perform the update automatically and we’ll set the option to Always create shortcuts.

Thanks for choosing Google Workspace.
