The Department folder is only available to faculty and staff. In it, you will find an entry for each department at Simmons. Departments can use their folder to store files that are shared among the members of a department.
How to access Department Folder (G:)
Reasons to use your Department Drive:
- The department drive only allows access to members of one department. It is a safe place to store files that are confidential to your department.
- The department drive allows everyone in the department to access files, so you can share files without cluttering your email boxes. Also, with only one location for files that you share, anyone who needs a file will always have access to the most recent version.
- Technology can create sub-folders and grant only specific users access rights. You can request folders for smaller groups within your department that need to share files.
If your department has student workers, they can be granted access to the department's drive for the time that they are working with your department.
