But if you needed to share multiple documents with the same group of people, the interface was (shall we say) clumsy.
A much simpler idea is to share a folder with the group, giving them access to all the documents it contains.
And that's exactly what Google has delivered. According to company officials, this feature was the most requested by users.
As promised mid-year, a Google Docs folder can now be shared with one or more other users, each of which gains access to the entire contents of the folder.
An associated change makes it possible to upload more than one file at a time to Google Docs. The "Select files to upload" dialog permits the selection of multiple files using shift-click (range) or control-click (item).
