Google introduces Priority page in Drive
Google has introduced a new Priority page in Drive. Its main objective is to help you stay focused and get work done. This page will help you access the files you need through a combination of suggestions and workspaces. With the new Priority page, not only are the most relevant files served up to you but you can take action on them, as well as sort them into workspaces.
You can access the Priority page from the left-hand navigation panel in Drive. Some features you’ll see on the Priority page include:
- Here you’ll see the documents we think are most relevant to you right now. These machine-learning-powered suggestions are based on various signals from your activity. On each suggested document, you can also take actions in line, without navigating to the doc in question, like replying to a comment or reviewing recent edits.
- In Workspaces, you’ll be able to see intelligent suggestions of related content to group together for easier access like multiple files related to the same project.
- You can also create your own personalised Workspaces collecting any files you have access to, including content stored in your My Drive and various Team Drives.
- Right-click on any file and select Add to Workspace to dynamically group files as you work.
If users would like to make Priority their default home page, they can do so in their settings, which is accessible via the gear icon in the upper righthand corner.
The new feature is available now for G Suite Basic, G Suite Business, and G Suite Enterprise and will hit G Suite for Education, G Suite Enterprise for Education, and G Suite for Nonprofits soon.
