From Chaos to Clarity: Practical Strategies for File Clean-Up

Submitted by: Julie Chiu | Cara


Your organization’s folder drive once made sense, but time has not treated it well. Now there are files duplicated and saved any which way. Your colleagues have so much trouble finding what they need, they save documents on their desktops and personal folders just to be sure they can find them again.

Cleaning up a folder drive can seem like a daunting task, but as the saying goes, “it takes time to save time”. Whether you’re considering a move to the cloud or trying to find some order in the chaos of a shared drive, this session will provide you with strategies to ensure that staff members can find the information they need to do their work.
