Organizing Google Sites File Cabinet Documents Into Folders

File Cabinet pages are a great way to share documents with individuals, an organization or the world. The number of documents and media on a File Cabinet page can get long very quickly. With a File Cabinet page we can organize documents and other media into folders for better organization.

We have a File Cabinet page with several documents. We can begin to organize these into folders. Before documents or media can be placed into folders they need to be added to the File Cabinet page.

Begin by selecting one or more documents or media. Click the check box next to each item.
