ICYMI - Google Team Drives Are Being Renamed to Shared Drives

From the department of, "Google's always changing something," yesterday Google announced that Team Drives are going to be renamed as Shared Drives. Depending upon the device you're using and your domain, this change will happen as early as May 21st.

Will this change anything about how you use Team Drives? Absolutely not! In fact, in their announcement Google said it is purely a name change based on user feedback. I've never heard anyone complain about the name Team Drive, but I'm sure Google has way more data points than I have ancedotal evidence.

I'm sharing this news simply because some people may be caught by surprise by the name change and think that something seriously changed within their Team Drives. 

How to Re-use a Google Forms Quiz

Last night a reader named Melissa emailed me with the following question, "Is there a way to get rid of scores on a Google Form so that it can reused as if it were just created?" The answer is yes, you can get rid of scores on a Google Form so that it can be reused. In fact, there are two ways that you can do that. In the following video I demonstrate how you can quickly clear all responses from a Google Forms quiz.

As I pointed-out in the video, you should probably download a CSV of the existing scores before you delete them. Once you've done that you can re-use the Form as many times as you like.
