A group is a collection of leaves (published files), and it can also include YouTube videos and images with or without links. Users can open/purchase all the content in a Group in one click, and SharingTree makes a folder in their Google Drive with all the content for that Group.
To make a Group open the left account toolbar using the three bars icon (☰), then navigate to Groups -> Published.
Once here, you can make a new group or update any published groups.
You start by selecting a Group name. Hyphens are the only special character allowed. This name will also be part of the URL for the group.
Next, you can select any published leaves to include in the Group, add a Youtube video, and any images with or without a URL link.
Lastly, you will identify a resource type, short description, optional long description, and a price ($0 for free) for the Group and click Save.
An example group to view is Kelly Hilton’s The First Days of School. This group contains resources from her ebook by the same title. When a user Opens/Purchases a Group, all the leaves (files) are added directly to their Google Drive in a folder with the Group name, and an additional spreadsheet called Other Content shows links to all additional resources.
