Document sorting

Only you can see your personal documents.

Team documents

Everyone in a team can see all team documents.

Organization documents

Everyone in an organization can see all organization documents.

NOTE: Teams are part of organizations but organization documents do not include team documents.

NOTE: Everyone in a team can add documents to the team and everyone in an organization can add documents to the organization, but only admins and moderators can remove them.

Everyone can share a document

Starred documents

Starred documents are like favorites.

Star a document (by clicking its star) to make it easy to find.

Starred documents appear in Starred Documents lists. (They also appear as starred in the list from which you starred them.)


NOTE: If viewing your personal account, the documents you've starred in your personal documents and in an organization's or team's documents display in your personal Starred Documents list.

If viewing an organization or a team, only documents you've starred in the organization or team display in Starred Documents.
